Gelinas retired: he's Nashville's director of player development now.

Ozolinsh reportedly signed with Dinamo Riga a few days ago.

Hill played in Switzerland last year. I doubt he's coming back to North America, but anything's possible.

Rucchin is most likely finished, having not played in over two years, meaning he likely never fully recovered from his 2007 concussion.

O'Neill retired after being released from Carolina's camp last year. (Link)

Cloutier is trying to come back from a hip injury, and has been working with the Corpus Christi IceRays.(Link)

Mark Rycroft works for Altitude in Denver now.

I thought Friesen had attended the Sharks training camp, but was cut.

He did.

He did. I don't think he was particularly impressive though. He has lost a lot of foot speed. His days in the NHL are likely done.

The same goes for Yanic Perreault. He still has his wrist shot and his face-off prowess, but he has lost so much foot speed that he would struggle to keep up with Wade Belak anymore.
