Grier calls it a career

Mike Grier made his retirement from the NHL official today as the NHLPA sent out a release announcing the end of the career of the 14-year veteran. 

Grier played in 1,060 regular season NHL games, recording 162 goals and 221 assists for 383 points. He also played in 101 playoff games, including stints as a member of the Sabres' 2006 Eastern Conference finalists and 2010 Northeast Division champions.

"I was very fortunate to be able to play 14 seasons in the NHL with some great players," said Grier. "The memories and friendships that I have built during my time in the league will last a lifetime. I would like to thank my former teammates, family and fans for helping make my career so memorable for me. It was a great ride, and I am now excited and looking forward to my post-playing future."

The NHLPA announced Grier will be living in Boston, where he was raised and starred collegiately for Boston University. He should be a coach someday. He'd be a good one. A very positive influence in the locker room. I think the Sabres miss him this year.
