Matt Cullen Retires

After 21 seasons in the NHL, and over 1,500 games played at the professional level, forward Matt Cullen has decided to call it a career. Over his long NHL tenure, Cullen played for the Ducks, Panthers, Hurricanes, Rangers, Senators, Predators, Wild, and had two stints in Pittsburgh with the Penguins, amassing 731 points and winning 3 Stanley Cups along the way with the Hurricanes and Pens. His years with the Penguins were remarkable, making an indelible mark on two legendary cup runs, often wearing the “A” for alternate captain when Letang or Malkin were out of the lineup. In a long essay posted to the Penguins website, Cullen said “I just hope I had a positive impact with my teammates wherever I went. I tried to be the best teammate that I could be throughout my career, and be there for other people, try to be a good example.” Thanks for the memories, Matt!
