Jamie Langenbrunner has retired after a 16-year NHL career in which he won two Stanley Cups. The 38-year-old right wing from Cloquet, Minn., played for Dallas, New Jersey and St. Louis. He won NHL titles with Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003. He was on the U.S. Olympic team in 1998 and 2010. Langenbrunner announced his retirement Wednesday in a statement by the NHL Players Association, thanking coaches and teammates for “helping a kid from Minnesota enjoy a long, fulfilling hockey career.”
Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he would welcome the chance to work with cornerback Antoine Winfield again. Winfield retired last weekend after he was cut by the Seattle Seahawks. Winfield spent nine seasons in Minneosta before he was abruptly cut this offseason in a cost-saving move.
The group of retired NFL players that was part of the labor talks during the lockout last year has not given up a push for better post-career care.
