Defenseman Aaron Ward retires
TORONTO -- Three-time Stanley Cup winner Aaron Ward is retiring after more than 13 NHL seasons.
The 37-year-old defenseman became a free agent this summer and had knee surgery for the third time. He says he wasn't going to be ready for the upcoming season.
He was originally picked by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1991 draft. He plans to continue his television work as a hockey analyst in the upcoming season.
