We are seeing more and more players start to realize that the NHL is now a young mans game and it's becoming harder for the veteran players to keep up with all the young talent.

The game has changed so much over the last decade, the speed, the skill, the way guys train, the nutrition, everything has changed to make the game faster and better than ever.

This has become the case for this former first round pick, who started off his NHL career a little slow and shakey, but for a few season stretch, he was the best goalie in the National Hockey League.

Devan Dubnyk, a former 14th overall pick of the Edmonton Oilers, announced his retirement from professional hockey.

He played on 6 teams over his career, but the majority of the time was spent with the Edmonton Oilers, and Minnesota Wild. He really found his groove as a goaltender with the Minnesota Wild where he began to put up seasons like his run in 2014-15 season where he went 27-9-2 with a .936 save percentage and 1.78 GAA.

The NHL is a young man's game and that becomes more clear every single day. Today former 14th overall pick Devan Dubnyk announced his official retirement from professional hockey. Last season Dubnyk split his time between the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche.
