On Shane Doan

Shane Doan in the Arizona Republic: Shane Doan announces that he is retiring from the NHL in a letter to fans in the Arizona Republic. A portion of his ‘letter.’

“I could not fathom at the time that I would end up playing in Arizona for the next 21 years, raise a family and call this place home. But that’s exactly what happened.

And that’s why this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make.

I’m retiring from the NHL.

My wife, Andrea, and I have prayed about this, and I truly believe this is His timing. I have peace, and I’m so thankful for that.”
