Long-time NHLer Nate Thompson has just announced his retirement in a surprising manner.
Thompson announced his retirement from the game of hockey on the Spittin Chiclets podcast which is quite the unconventional route. He then followed it up with a social media statement.
"From the time I was 4 until 38 hockey has been my life and best friend. I'm beyond grateful and thankful for all the great people I've met and friendships I've made. All good things must come to an end so thank you to all who supported me along this journey.✌🏼❤️"

Throughout his 844-game career, Thomspon registered 164 points as a bottom-line player who focused on the small details of the game.
He spent 2022-23 with the Ontario Reign of the AHL. He played for the Boston Bruins, New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators, LA Kings, Montreal Canadiens, Winnipeg Jets, and Philadelphia Flyers.
