1 Comment

David Moss, the nine-year veteran that spent time with both Calgary and Arizona, announced his retirement from professional hockey via his Twitter account on Wednesday morning.

“I’ll always be humbled to say I played in the NHL,” Moss said in a statement. “I will miss all of my teammates and the great relationships I made over the last 10 years, the hockey world is something special and I was lucky to be part of it!”

Moss, 34, was Calgary’s seventh-round pick at the 2001 draft. Following a solid career at the University of Michigan, Moss transitioned to the pro game in 2005 and made his NHL debut two years later, with the Flames.

His best year came in 2008-09, when he scored a career-high 20 goals and 39 points.

Moss spent the majority of his career in Calgary, appearing in over 300 games during a six-year span. He spent the final three years with the Coyotes, before a brief stint with Biel of the Swiss League last season.
