Vincent Lecavalier says he’s going to retire


When the Los Angeles Kings made that slightly startling trade to acquire Vincent Lecavalier, the plan was for the veteran to retire. Some solid work with Los Angeles apparently didn’t change that plan.

While the former Tampa Bay Lightning star hasn’t actually made it official as far as paperwork goes – he told reporters that the Kings’ playoff exit is still a little “too fresh” on his mind – he’s sticking to his guns about retiring.

He finishes his career with a Stanley Cup ring, four All-Star nods and a Maurice Richard Trophy. He generated 949 points in 1,212 regular season games between the Lighting, Philadelphia Flyers and Kings.

The Hall of Fame debate should be intriguing.
