PITTSBURGH (AP) -Longtime NHL forward Bill Guerin, unable to land a contract this season, is retiring after scoring 429 goals in 18 seasons with eight clubs.
The Pittsburgh Penguins planned to honor Guerin before their Monday night game against New Jersey. Guerin spent his final 1 1/2 seasons with the Penguins, scoring seven goals in 24 playoff games during their run to a Stanley Cup title in 2009.
Guerin also won the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 1995.
Pittsburgh did not offer the 40-year-old Guerin a contract this season, and the Philadelphia Flyers declined to sign him after he had a preseason tryout with them.
Guerin also played with Edmonton, Boston, Dallas, St. Louis, San Jose and the New York Islanders. The Massachusetts native played on U.S. Olympic teams in 1998, 2002 and 2006.
