Barret Jackman to announce retirement tomorrow in St. Louis

By Jason Brough Oct 3, 2016, 10:19 AM EDT

He finished his career in Nashville, but Barret Jackman will always be remembered for his hundreds of games in a St. Louis Blues uniform.

That’s why Jackman will officially retire from the NHL tomorrow afternoon during a press conference at Scottrade Center, the home of the Blues. The 35-year-old defenseman played 803 games for St. Louis, before signing with the Predators last summer. He was bought out by Nashville in June.

Jackman was the Blues’ first-round draft pick (17th overall) in 1999. A tough, stay-at-home defenseman, he won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s rookie of the year in 2003 and went on to finish with 186 points (29G, 157A) in 876 career games.

Jackman’s press conference will be attended by Blues owner Tom Stillman and GM Doug Armstrong, as well as two former Blues defensemen who are now in Hall of Fame, Chris Pronger and Al MacInnis.

I was about to say "One year too late," but perhaps one year is being too kind. :lol:

In all seriousness, in a perfect world it would have been nice to see him with the Blues his whole career, but hey- business is business. It's a nice touch for him to announce his retirement in StL rather than Nashville. Congrats. :okman:

He would've had a hell of a career if they hadn't changed the rules right after he started to cut down on the clutching and grabbing. He was excellent at tying people up like that. He still busted his ass for the Blues though and seemed like a great character guy. Best of luck to him in retirement.

Looks like Jax will retire a Blue after all:

"Jackman signs 1-day contract with Blues, announces retirement
Ian McLaren Oct 4, 2016 2:13 PM
For one more day, Barret Jackman is a member of the St. Louis Blues.

The defenseman signed a one-day contract with the club prior to officially announcing his retirement from professional hockey Tuesday."

This makes me happy.

Look who was on-hand for the retirement:

Quote:
The crowd also included a group of Blues alumni that could have iced a Hall of Fame lineup: Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Bernie Federko, Al MacInnis, Chris Pronger and Martin Brodeur. The entire current Blues’ roster also attended the ceremony.


That list of names is pretty damn impressive... :letsgoblues:
