The Montreal Canadiens released a statement Wednesday, announcing that Blake Geoffrion has notified general manager Marc Bergevin about possibly retiring.
Geoffrion suffered a depressed skull fracture in an American Hockey League game on Nov. 9, 2012 and had surgery the following day.
The statement said that Geoffrion’s condition has shown no significant improvement since the surgery, and added that the Canadiens management, Geoffrion, his agent or family will not make any further comment until “further notice.”
Earlier on Wednesday, reports surfaced that Geoffrion had retired from hockey.
