Many wondered what the St. Louis Blues would do this off-season regarding the free agency of the popular Andy McDonald.
Now, they do not have to worry about it any longer.
According to Andy Strickland of TrueHockey.com, McDonald has decided to retire, citing concussion concerns.
McDonald told Strickland that the five previous concussions he suffered were always on his mind.
“The last few years too much of the focus became worrying about the next hit. I was always thinking about it.”
McDonald, who won a Stanley Cup championship during his days with the Anaheim Ducks, spent six seasons with the Blues and ammassed 182 goals and 307 assists during his 13-year career.
McDonald struggled down the stretch for the Blues and in their first round series loss to the Los Angeles Kings.
McDonald becomes the second Blues player in consecutive days to retire as Scotty Nichol retired on Wednesday after accepting a front office position with the Nashville Predators.
