[Report] Dan Carcillo announces retirement

Recommended Posts

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.

Carcillo the hockey player was a rat. Don't need rats in the game. He wont' be missed as a hockey player.

Carcillo the man seemed to be a good guy (except when he talked about how he hated the Canucks when he signed as a 'hawk a few years ago). I wish Carcillo the man all the success and peace in his retirement.
