Anaheim Ducks Ryan Kesler's career could be over

According to a report from the NHL's official website, it looks like veteran forward Ryan Kesler's career could be over sooner rather than later. This season, Kesler has been battling a major hip injury although he was able to make it to a thousand games played.

It hasn't been officially announced yet, but the reason Kesler's career is in jeopardy is due to his hip injury. He may need a career-ending surgery to repair the injury he has been struggling with most of the season.
We have to find some options for me. Not just for hockey, but my life, the 34-year old veteran stated once the Ducks' season ended. Simple things, like putting on socks in the morning are tough. I was in a good spot, and it's just the grind of the season. The back-to-back games, and the four games in six nights. That's what broke me down and broke my hip down over the course of the year.
Throughout his career, Kesler has scored a total of 573 points (258 goals and 315 assists) between the Vancouver Canucks and the Anaheim Ducks. Kesler has stated the only available surgery would be a complete hip replacement, that he has admitted that would be career-ending.

Losing Kesler would be a major blow for the Anaheim Ducks who have struggled with many injuries this season. Losing a seasoned player to injury is the worse case scenario for both the organization and Kesler himself.
