Former Wing Mike Sillinger Calls it a Day

Delta stock dropped 38% with the announcement…
I’m a little late with this news, but thought it was worth mentioning nonetheless.

Former Red Wing Mike Sillinger announced his retirement from the NHL yesterday, ending a 17-year career spanning 1049 games, but only 43 post-season games.

He broke into the league with the Red Wings during the 1990-91 season – and I had the great pleasure of meeting him at an event when I was about 9. He was very funny, very friendly, and has been one of my favorite hockey players since.

He’s the answer to two trivia questions: “who has played on more NHL teams than anyone else?” – and “who has been traded the most times?”

Mike played for the Wings, Ducks, Canucks, Flyers, Lightning, Panthers, Senators, Blue Jackets, Coyotes, Blues, Predators and Islanders.

Enjoy retirement. Thanks for the memories.
