-Vintage Canuck- Posted September 18, 2015 Share Posted September 18, 2015 After 429 games and 1233 penalty minutes, Dan Carcillo is calling it a career: On Thursday, Carcillo announced his retirement from the NHL via the Players Tribune. The decision comes after a tumultuous ’14-15 campaign in which Carcillo’s close friend, ex-NHLer Steve Mondator, passed away; in the aftermath, Carcillo re-directed his focus on helping NHLers transition into retirement with his new endeavor, a charity called Chapter 5. Carcillo, 30, walks away with a pretty colorful career. A two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Blackhawks, he’ll probably best be remembered for his numerous brushes with the league’s disciplinary office — Carcillo was suspended or fined 12 times in his first nine seasons in the league, which included a lengthy ban for physically engaging a linesman during the ’14 playoffs. The later stages of Carbomb’s career did show a different side to him. He shot an emotional, well-received video segment for the Players’ Tribune following Montador’s passing, and been lauded for his initiatives with Chapter 5. http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2015/09/17/farewell-carbomb-carcillo-announces-retirement/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
