Veteran forward Vinny Prospal, who was expected to join the Vancouver Canucks' American Hockey League affiliate on a professional tryout contract, has instead decided to retire.

"I can confirm that this is the end of my career," Prospal told Czech website iDNES.cz. "I found out that I wouldn't be able to give 100 percent to hockey anymore."

Prospal was scheduled to join Utica for Friday and Saturday games against the Abbotsford Heat, who play about a one-hour drive outside of Vancouver.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
