As we speculated before, Calgary Flames veteran Craig Conroy made his retirement official today with a press conference. Don’t worry about him finding a job in a tough economy though; Conroy and the Flames also announced that he would serve as a “special assistant” to GM Jay Feaster.
Conroy played 16 seasons and more than 1,000 games in the NHL despite going in the sixth round (123rd overall) in the 1990 draft. He scored 182 goals and 360 assists for 542 points in his NHL career.
The two-way center was known for his frankness and openness with the hockey media, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him on TV in the future. If being Feaster’s “special assistant” isn’t too time consuming, that is.
