Yesterday the doc gave me a sad news...I won't have the chance to be back playing this year. This news sadly puts an end to my hockey career. Yes, for the first time I will listen to my body. It was a hard decision to make and everyone that knows me well will know that it's with tears that I'm writing this Tweet. I'm really proud of my career and all that I accomplished. Proud because I gave all I had with all my heart and honesty until the end. My new life takes place, a new challenge that I can't wait to start and will certainly be easier to achieve with all the people I love.
Finally, I would like to thank Bob Hartley and the @calgaryflames organisation. They gave me the chance to be back in the NHL. I'm happy and proud that i could do it with them.
Mark my words, I am willing to bet anything that this guy finds a job somewhere in hockey. Whether it be coaching or something else. Great heart and soul guy that always stood up for the entire team. Makes me proud to be a fellow Québécois!
