And Now Dan Carcillo Has Retired
Just weeks after Daniel Briere announced his retirement and days after Simon Gagne announced his retirement, another former Flyer has retired.
This one isnt as well liked as the previous two, but he still should have a special place in your Flyers heart.
Daniel "CarBomb" Carcillo has taken to The Players Tribune and has decided to hang up his skates for the last time.
His longest tenure with a team in the NHL came with the Flyers from 2008-2011 where he made the run to the Stanley Cup with the team in 2010.
He later bounced around the league from Chicago, to New York, to Los Angeles, but during his time with the Flyers he was a fan favorite.
He did spend the majority of his playing career in the penalty box and wast much of a goal scorer, but his playing style was a match for Flyers fans.
The two-time Stanley Cup champion took to The Players Tribune to announce his retirement and also revealed that he would like to remain close to the game:
"My immediate goal is to help athletes transition to the next phase of their life — whether it’s continuing education, finding internships with companies, or networking with other athletes who are dealing with the same issues. My mission is to help guys who are dealing with anxiety, depression, and uncertainty about their future. Not down the line, not next week, but right now."
Carcillo, 30, finished his career with 1,233 penalty minutes and 9 suspensions.
