38-year-old forward Jay Pandolfo might have played in his last game.

He participated in just 18 contests in 2013 with the Boston Bruins and averaged just 9:04 minutes of ice time.

“[It’s] age. If you are going to try to continue to play, it’s a mental commitment more than just physical,” Pandolfo told CSN New England. “Right now, that’s why I haven’t 100 percent made a decision. That’s why I’m more leaning more towards retiring.”

Pandolfo played in 899 career games and only spent his final season in Boston, but it was a memorable experience for him.

“To be able to finish here [in Boston] is pretty special for me,” Pandolfo said. “I’m not sure I’d really want to go play somewhere else at this point. I’m definitely probably leaning towards retiring.”

He has scored 100 goals and 226 points over his career. Pandolfo also won the Stanley Cup twice with the New Jersey Devils.

It’s worth adding that he also reinforced those statements on Twitter today:
