Forward Craig Adams officially announced his retirement on Tuesday after 14 NHL seasons.
The 37-year-old Adams played on two Stanley Cup winners with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006 and the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009.
In 951 career NHL regular-season games with the Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks and Penguins, he totaled 55 goals and 105 assists. He played in an additional 106 playoff begins since starting his career with Carolina during the 2000-2001 season after four years at Harvard.
"I consider myself very lucky to have been able to live out my dream of playing in the NHL," Adams said in a statement. "I would like to thank all the management and coaches who took a chance on me and gave me an opportunity to play a role for their teams. Thank you to the trainers and equipment staff who I had the pleasure of working with along the way. They were always too good to me.
"The opportunity to compete with and against the best players in the world every day was an honor that I never took for granted. I am grateful for my teammates and the friendships I have made over the years.
"Thanks for the good times, the laughs and the memories. I would also like to express my gratitude to the fans across the NHL. Without the fans, the winning, and losing, would not mean nearly as much."
Adams played in 70 regular-season games for the Penguins in 2014-15 and finished with one goal and six assists.
