Andrew Peters Retires

Kevin Oklobzija reports:

Quote:
Tough-guy left winger Andrew Peters cleared waivers and plans to retire.

His agent, Steve Bartlett of Pittsford-based Sports Consulting Group, said the Vancouver Canucks had asked Peters to report to the Manitoba Moose. But, having played only two games with the Amerks in October, and realizing his role would be very limited, he has decided to move on with life after hockey.

Peters, 30, played nine pro seasons, including six in the NHL.
I wouldn't be surprised to see him hook back up with the Sabres in some capacity. I wish him well.

Not the best player and I hated him as a hockey player for the Sabres.

But he was a great guy the few times I met him and I have heard great things from others who had met him.

Do they need someone to help with the keg stands?

If the Sabres ever bring dancers / cheerleaders in like some teams are doing, Peters could be the choreographer. Lord knows that he did a lot more jukes and jives in his days than actual fighting.

Everyone says he's a good guy in the locker room and in practice. I wonder if he'll try to get into coaching.

Good luck to Petey in retirement.

I have a lot of memories from his days as a Sabre. Namely the brawl against Ottawa in 06-07. Then he scored the odd goal and I won't ever forget those. One against the Flyers in 06-07 and one against the Predators in 07-08.

He's the nicest guy to talk to. I met him a few years ago and I have nothing but good things to say about him as a person. He was always willing to interact with the fans.

Unfortunately his days in the NHL are over. I'm surprised the Panthers gave him that contract last summer in the first place. I think he should have retired before that ever happened. Anyway, I wouldn't be opposed to bringing him back to the organization to work in a player development role or something.

Not surprising since I've seen him on the bench of a local mite team recently.

It's about time he felt bad for getting free money. He might have been a good guy in the dressing room but he is still one of the worst players I have ever seen put on a Sabres sweater

Also, on the ice during a mens "D" league game.

He was my favorite person to clean up the pucks after a pre-game warmup. He hit the goal like at least 5% of the time.

I still remember seeing live the one goal vs philly in february. I wish him the best luck in the future and think he'd be an awesome peewee coach.

I saw his first goal in a New Years Eve beatdown of Washington in 2003-04. Afinogenov and Satan had hat tricks, with this one lumped in there:

Andrew Peters (1) Assists: Chris Taylor, Adam Mair

Possibly the scrubbiest goal in Sabres history

He will be missed. Truly one of the all-time greats.

How crazy must it be to be able to retire at 30?

Wish him all the best. He may not have been the best player, but he had the heart.

I wonder what kind of $ he still has in the bank. Contracts after taxes and agent for 6 years pro couldnt have added up to crazy numbers.

Eh, I'm sure there's a future for him somewhere.

I don't know him or anything, but he seems like a smart guy. I doubt he didn't put anything away.

He was far from my favorite Sabre, and he wasn't even a terribly good fighter. But he had his moments.

In honor of his retirement, I give you Andrew Peters breaking Bryan McGrattan's face.

Favorite fight ever. I love him calling the refs in.
