After Ryan Callahan was sidelined due to an injury last season, he has officially announced his retirement

In a message on Twitter, the veteran striker thanked everyone who was part of his 13-year career, including the New York Rangers, for giving him a shot when they made him the 127th place in 2004 Choosing overall rankings Callahan would eventually become captain of the Rangers, not bad for a hard-working mid-round selection from the OHL

Next, Callahan thanks the Tampa Bay Lightning, the second chapter of his NHL career that he has spent the past five and a half seasons in. More than his success on the ice, he thanks Blitz for helping set up his charitable foundation / p>

Callahan, a veteran of 757 NHL regular season games, reached the Stanley Cup finals twice but failed to lift the silver goblet. His career ends with 386 points, but it’s his mindset that counts Long after his death, teammates and fans will remember Joe Smith of The Athletic, perhaps for the last time he introduces Callahan and explains how his career ended in Tampa while getting a glimpse of where his life will take him now

Appreciated a fan favorite during his time with the Rangers and enjoyed his hustle and bustle – he never gave up on a shame that he couldn’t raise the cup. Well-deserved retirement

Put his heart and soul into every shift of every gameLove him as a ranger Enjoy your retirement, Ryan

An excellent captain who made RangersTown proud. Enjoy your retirement and good luck in your future endeavors, Ryan!
