NHL NEWS: Huselius to retire.

Courtesy aftonbladet.se, via Corey Pronman on Twitter, left winger Kristian Huselius – formerly of the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Calgary Flames and the Florida Panthers – has announced his retirement due to an ongoing leg/hip injury problem at the relatively young age of 34.  He was playing for AIK in the SEL this season due to the lockout, and was an NHL free agent after not being re-signed by Columbus following an injury plagued last two seasons there.  Huselius was a talented player, scoring 20+ goals five times and a career high 34 goals with the Flames in 06/07.  He finished his career with 190 goals and 451 points in 662 NHL games.  This is a shame for all involved, as when healthy he is an extremely useful scorer, and of course you never wish to see a player’s career cut short due to injury.  All the best to Kristian.
