GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis said Monday he doesn't know what his future holds, including if he would be playing hockey next season.

St. Louis, 39, will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He spoke with reporters three days after the Rangers lost to his former team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

"As you get older, you always think about the following year, the next year," he said. "For me right now, of course I want to play. I'm not sure which direction this team is going to go in either, so it's tough to comment. I've been blessed to play parts of two years here for a great organization and we'll see where that takes me. The opportunity to play for a Cup last year and one win away again this year … it's an experience I'll never forget."
