Big Walt has announced that he will retire from the NHL after 19 seasons. His last home game will be against the Ducks on Friday 9 April 2010. There will be a press conference on 13 April 2010 and this is open to the public. There will be a profile of the big guy here at the weekend but, in the meantime, here are some of today’s articles:
- The Blues Official Site has the announcement, career stats, photo gallery, video highlights and a KMOX interview.
- St Louis Game Time points out that Tkachuk loves St Louis as much as we do.
- Jeremy Rutherford of the Post Dispatch gives the big guy some love and appreciation.
- Puck Daddy comes up with an appreciative list – a definite must read.
If you’re going to Big Walt’s last home game on Friday, then please show the guy some love – he’s done an awful lot for St Louis. The Blues will pay tribute to Walt after the game.
