Gormley, selected in the first-round (No. 13) of the 2010 NHL Draft, has produced six goals and 32 points in 48 games for the Pirates this season. His 26 assists are the second most on the team and his five power-play goals are tied for third most.
The 6-foot-2, 196-pounder has totaled 11 goals, 61 points and 70 penalty minutes in 116 career games for the Pirates.
I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
