Guerin Retires As Pittsburgh Penguin
PITTSBURGH (KDKA)- Bill Guerin, who has played 18 season with eight different NHL teams, today announced his retirement.
Guerin, 40, has won two Stanley Cups, the first in 1995 with the New Jersey Devils and the other with the Penguins in 2009.
He recorded 856 points with 429 goals and 427 assists over the course of his career.
In a statement from the Penguins, Guerin said: “We were only here a short time but my family and I developed such a deep connection to the city, the team and the fans. It was amazing. From ownership and Ray Shero to the coaching staff and trainers, from my teammates to the arena workers to the people in the stands, they all treated us in such a first-class manner. It was an extremely positive experience. We all agree that retiring as a Pittsburgh Penguin is the perfect thing to do.”
The Penguins are planning to honor Guerin in a pre-game ceremony before Monday’s game against the New Jersey Devils.
