Kinda sad that a player only retires when no one wants to sign him?

How is that sad? That means nobody wants to sign him so he can have a job for one more year. What else are you going to do if you're 37 years old and you can't find a job in the NHL, AHL, or KHL or even Europe to play hockey? Hejduk's not gonna sit and wait for someone to throw an offer because he waited all summer and now into November so might as well retire. Join the Avs management office if he wanted to.

One of the classiest players to ever take part in the Northwest Division dogfights during the WCE days.

This guy was all class. Highly regarded by many around the league, an Olympic gold and bronze medalist, Stanley Cup champion and famed Canuck killer.

No question about this-- Hejduk's jersey should be retired by the Avalanche for his unwavering loyalty and contributions to their franchise.

Former team captain, Rocket Richard trophy winner.. The list goes on.

Enjoy your well-earned retirement, Milan!
