[Report] Ales Hemsky announces retirement

He was still playing?  

 

Anyways, he has had a decent career.  Probably would have been a bigger star had he played outside of Deadmonton during his prime years.

He also couldn't stay healthy to save his life. Never played a full NHL season.

Hemsky was always a loyal player. Edmonton had a good player and it's unsurprising to me that they played well with him around. This was during the time when the Pacific division was not an embarassment like it is today.

According to hockeydb, not for the past two seasons.

 

Can a retirement be retroactive?

Very underrated skill wise. I remember him in his prime years. Silky smooth hands. Had a couple years near a PPG which is a big deal with how bad Edmonton was after their SCF appearance.

He was pretty good for a few years there. In 2005-06 he had 58 assists and 77 points in 81 games and in 2008-09 he had 23 goals and 66 points in only 72 games, both seasons with the Oilers.

Could have been much more if he'd played somewhere else, he gave his all for some awful Edmonton teams. 

 

Congrats on the career though.

His 06 run with that Oilers team was pretty mint. Sad how that team really fell off a cliff after that and he just kept getting hurt

Always remember him for being the beneficiary of this play (RIP Patrik Stefan)
