lafountain Posted June 14, 2007 Report Share Posted June 14, 2007 Pierre Turgeon announced his retirement from the NHL. Veteran forward Pierre Turgeon has decided to retire after 19 NHL seasons, according to a report in The Denver Post. Sources told the newspaper that Turgeon, 37, is expected to make a formal announcement soon. Turgeon last played with the Colorado Avalanche, signing a two-year, $3 million deal with the club in 2005 on the same day Peter Forsberg signed with the Philadelphia Flyers via free agency. Injuries plagued Turgeon late in his career. Shoulder surgery kept him out of the lineup late in the 2005-06 season, while groin and calf injuries limited him to just 17 games last season. In 1,294 career games with six NHL teams, he had 515 goals and 812 assists for 1,327 points. With the Sabres, Islanders, Canadiens, Blues, Stars and Avs, Turgeon never played in a Stanley Cup final. He had a very solid career, one of the premier playmakers of his time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
