Defenseman Tom Poti, who played in more than 800 games for four teams during a 14-season NHL career, announced his retirement Thursday.
Poti, 37, last played in the NHL for the Washington Capitals during the 2012-13 season.
"I was very fortunate to play in the National Hockey League for 14 years. It was a dream come true and I had an awesome ride and met so many great people along the way," Poti said in a statement released through the NHL Players' Association. "I'd like to thank my family and my wife and children for all their love and support."
