According to TSN, two-time Senators forward Mike Comrie has announced his retirement from professional hockey after ten NHL seasons. (As an aside, has it really been that long? It feels like we're counting Comrie's career in dog years.)

Around the nation's capital, Comrie will fondly be remembered for his role on the Senators during the team's 2007 Stanley Cup Finals run. So much so that despite having the fourth worst record in the Eastern Conference (22-26-9), GM Bryan Murray re-acquired Comrie on February 20th, 2009 - dealing a first round draft selection and Dean McAmmond for Comrie and defenceman Chris Campoli. (note: For those wondering, yes, this was still the denial stage of the franchise when it still wanted to afford an overpaid, complacent veteran core every opportunity to re-capture their '07 magic.)

Comrie released this statement:

"My career has afforded me a series of phenomenal opportunities to play and become friends with some of the greatest people I have ever known and some of the greatest players who have ever played this game," Comrie said in a statement. "To have made the lasting friendships I enjoy today with so many of my former teammates is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. It's the reward that has made all the hard work, the trades, the moves and the surgeries worthwhile."

The Brick heir then took celebrity wife Hilary Duff's hand and jumped into a room full of money.
