Former Stanley Cup Winner With Capitals Retires

Devante Smith-Pelly has retired from professional hockey at just age 30. He played for four teams in the NHL - Anaheim Ducks, Montreal Canadiens, New Jersey Devils, and the Washington Capitals.

He was drafted 42nd overall in 2010 and entered the league at just 19 years old. He amassed eight seasons between the four teams and was impactful on the Capitals' run to the Stanley Cup in 2018, scoring seven goals.

Smith-Pelly last played in the NHL in 2018-19, producing four goals and eight points in 54 games in a bottom-six role. He played 395 career games, scoring 44 goals and 101 points to go along with 13 goals and three assists in 51 playoff games.

He went over to the KHL after 2018-19 for one season before returning to the AHL for the final two seasons of his career. Smith-Pelly wasn't playing anywhere this season, so decided to hang up the skates.
