Dallas Stars forward Brenden Morrow retires after 15 NHL seasons. The 37 years-old former Dallas captain retires with a recorded 265 goals and 310 assists in 991 career regular-season games with the Stars. Though his retirement finally sealed his chance of taking home a title, Morrow has no regrets with his performance and contribution to the league after a 15-year career.
“I know I didn’t leave anything out there. Every shift, every game, I gave everything I had. And I don’t think you can regret anything if you play like that,” Morrow stated.
Over his career, Morrow has proven his passion for the sports. He has played through injuries, and even playing with a broken ankle back in the 2000 playoffs. Though he was deprived of the coveted opportunity to raise the Stanley Cup, Morrow was still thankful for what ice hockey has given him.
“The game of hockey has given me so many opportunities in my life. Winning a gold medal for Canada at the Olympic Games and appearing in two Stanley Cup Final series are things that I only dreamed of growing up. Getting to perform on those stages is still surreal to me. To all my family, friends, trainers, equipment managers, coaches and teammates, thank you for supporting and pushing me throughout my career.” Morrow proudly shared.
As Morrow starts a new tomorrow upon retiring from NHL, he would be leaving a legacy as the second-longest tenured captain in club history, serving from 2006 to 2013 after replacing former Dallas franchise icon Mike Modano. In retrospect, over his long time hockey career, Morrow can help bring Dallas in a two Stanley Cup Finals appearances and as well as the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2015. And with those accomplishments and some others, Brenden Morrow decided that it’s time for him to retire officially from the National Hockey League.
