TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Gary Roberts' NHL career appears to be over after the 42-year-old left winger went unclaimed on waivers.
Canadian sports network TSN reported Friday that Roberts, already set to retire at the end of the season, will not play another game for the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Roberts retired in 1996 because of a chronic neck injury, but returned the following season. A Stanley Cup winner with Calgary in 1989, he has 438 goals, 471 assists and 2,560 penalty minutes in 1,224 career games with the Flames, Carolina, Toronto, Florida, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. He has three goals and four assists in 30 games this season.
