Colton Orr, who spent nine seasons in the NHL with three teams, retired from professional hockey Thursday.

Orr had 12 goals and 24 points in 477 games with the Boston Bruins, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. He also played 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The 35-year-old had a minus-4 rating and 15 penalty minutes in 10 games this season with Stockton, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Calgary Flames.

"I feel privileged to have played for a decade in the NHL and to have had the support of four great organizations in Boston, New York, Toronto and Calgary," Orr told the NHL Players' Association website. "I am grateful to have had the opportunity to play with great teammates and against great players, many of whom have become great friends. It has been an amazing journey that would not have been anywhere near as fulfilling as it was without the love and support of fans, friends, agents, GMs, coaches and family.

"I look forward now to the next chapter of my life which I could not be happier to share with the two loves of my life, my wife Sabrina and daughter Charlotte."
