Bruins' Recchi announces retirement

Wednesday, 06.15.2011 / 11:02 PM / 2011 Stanley Cup Final - Canucks v Bruins

NHL.com

Mark Recchi is going out on top.

Just moments after helping the Boston Bruins win their first Stanley Cup since 1972 with a 4-0 victory against the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 at Rogers Arena, the 43-year-old forward announced he is hanging up the blades.

Recchi, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, had 14 goals and 34 assists in 81 regular-season games and went 5-9-14 in 25 playoff contests.

Recchi was the second Bruin to hoist the Stanley Cup on Wednesday night after captain Zdeno Chara.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.

— Martin Brodeur, after announcing his retirement as an NHL player and becoming a senior adviser with the Blues on Thursday
