Paul Kariya announced his retirement from the NHL on Wednesday after being unable to return from post-concussion symptoms that forced him to miss all of last season.
Free agent forward Paul Kariya will not play next season after being diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome.
"It was my dream to be a professional hockey player in the NHL from my minor hockey days in North Vancouver and Burnaby, through junior hockey in Penticton, college hockey at the University of Maine, and the Canadian National Team," Kariya said. "I would not have achieved it without support from all of these people and organizations."
Kariya announced the end of his stellar, 15-season career in a statement released by his agent, Don Baizley.
