Veteran NHL'er Retires After 11 Seasons

Retiring or switching teams in a year without fans seems unfair to those who deserve a proper send off. For instance, Zdeno Chara will have played his final game with the Bruins, but he did not get the standing ovation he deserves. Now, Colorado Avalanche's Colin Wilson will feel much of the same. 

Wilson played 632 NHL games over 11 seasons with the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche.
He registered 113 goals and 173 assists for a total of 286 career points after being drafted 7th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He was ruled out indefinitely after undergoing surgery in 2019 and has now called it a career at age 31.
