New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) - New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis has announced his retirement after 16 years in the NFL.
"I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride," St. Louis said in a release issued by the Rangers.
"I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years," he added.
St. Louis also thanked his family - wife Heather and sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason and his parents - for their unwavering love and support.
The 40-year-old forward had 21 goals and 52 points in 74 games with the Rangers last season, the final year of his contract.
St. Louis had 1,033 points in 1,134 regular-season games in 16 seasons with the Calgary Flames, Lightning and Rangers.
In 2004 he won the Art Ross Trophy, the Hart Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award while helping the Lightning win the Stanley Cup.
In 2012-13 he led the League with 60 points in 48 games, and at age 37 became the oldest player to win the Ross.
St. Louis also won the Lady Byng Trophy three times, and skated in the NHL All-Star Game six times.
