Here is a quote from Jeff on the official forums:

You can choose whether or not to retire players at the proper historical time, so he could conceivably play beyond 80-81, but even if you had it set to real-life career end dates, he can finish 80-81. No mid-season ends to careers unless the player gets a random career-ending injury.
This was in response to a question regarding Phil Esposito.
