Martin Hanzal has announced his retirement from the NHL.

Hanzal missed all of last season with a back injury and only played in seven games in 2018-19, so this is no surprise as the big center had problems throughout his career in staying healthy. “It’s a little bit of a relief because the last couple of years I wasn’t sure if I’d play another NHL game or be healthy again so now it’s official: I am retired from the NHL,” Hanzal said by phone to Craig Morgan. “If I was healthy, I would probably still be playing, but after three back surgeries and especially after the last one, I just can’t do it anymore. I was doing everything I could after this last one and it took me a year to get back on the ice. When I went to see the doctor again, it was either do another surgery or be done playing. Even the doctor said, ‘We’re not sure another surgery will help.’ I still have a long life ahead of me. I don’t want to do another surgery when it’s not 100 percent sure it will even help.” Hanzal managed to play 673 NHL games and scored 127 goals while assisting on 211. His value was as a two-way center as the talented Hanzal was also a shutdown forward, often playing against the opponent's top line. We wish him well in his future as his contract with the Dallas Stars ended with the conclusion of the 2019-20 season. Oct 26 8:49 am (EST)
