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

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
