Nate Prosser Announces Retirement

Nate Prosser has officially announced his retirement from the NHL.

Prosser initially went undrafted but would have himself a pretty lengthy career at the NHL level. After playing four seasons with Colorado College, he would be signed to an entry-level contract by his hometown team, the Minnesota Wild, during the 2009-10 season. From there, he eventually would cement himself a permanent spot on their NHL roster - even if he was more of a depth defenseman. 

Prosser was an old-fashioned kind of defenseman, as he never was dominant on the scoresheet, but simply aimed to play a very reliable game. When seeing as how he lasted in the NHL for 11 seasons, it's fair to say it worked out for him.

In 360 games between the Minnesota Wild, St. Louis Blues, and Philadelphia Flyers, he had 11 goals, 38 assists, 49 points, and 231 penalty minutes. 

Nevertheless, enjoy your retirement, Nate!
