A veteran of the Colorado Avalanche announced his official retirement from the NHL following an impressive 19-year career.

The Avalanche were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs last night after a tough 2-1 loss against the Dallas Stars in the second period of overtime.
Unfortunately, this was the last time we saw Zach Parise on the ice for a NHL game.
Back in January, when he signed his one-year deal with the Avs, he made it clear that this was his last shot at winning a Stanley Cup.
After the game, the insider Elliotte Friedman shared the following statement, confirming what Parise said when he joined the Avs:
"Parise has said that he would retire after this season. He also had an emotional exchange with Peter DeBoer. Those two went to the 2012 Stanley Cup Final with New Jersey."

Parise, 39, was drafted 17th overall in 2003 by the New Jersey Devils. Since then, he played 1254 NHL games in the regular season, as well as 122 in the playoffs.
In addition of the Devils and the Avalanche, Parise also played for the Minnesota Wild and the New York Islanders.
The forward is set to earn a salary from the Wild until 2029, because of the Wild's decision to buy out his contract in 2021.
More to come.
