Avalanche goalie Giguere to retire: report @NHLdotcom

Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere is expected to announce his retirement in mid-June, the Toronto Sun reported Monday.

"I do not see a reason to remain in the League," Giguere said, according to the QMI Agency. "I just want to be sure to do it right, to meet my agent Bob Sauve and talk to the Players' Association."

Giguere was 11-6-1 with a 2.62 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season as the backup to Semyon Varlamov.

Giguere, 37, was the 13th pick of the 1995 NHL Draft by the Hartford Whalers.

In 17 seasons with the Whalers, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Avalanche, he was 262-216-64 (with 25 ties), a 2.53 GAA and .913 save percentage.

He won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Ducks lost the Final to the New Jersey Devils in seven games. He won the championship with the Ducks in 2007, when they defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games.

He was 33-17 with a 2.08 GAA and .925 save percentage in 52 playoff games, all with the Ducks.
