TORONTO (November 19, 2013) – Adrian Aucoin, a respected defenceman known for his leadership and consistency throughout his career, announced his retirement from the National Hockey League ( NHL ) today after 17 NHL seasons .

TORONTO (April 30, 2013) – Brian Rolston, a veteran of 17 NHL seasons , a four time 30-goal scorer, a Stanley Cup champion and a three-time Olympian, officially announced his retirement from the National Hockey League on Tuesday.

The smooth-skating, left-shooting, offensive-minded defenseman played in 423 consecutive games from 2011-2016. His ironman streak ended in December not because of injury but when coach Joel Quenneville made Campbell a healthy scratch.

The Blackhawks signed Campbell to a $57.14 million, eight-year contract in 2008, and he played almost 20 minutes a game during their Cup run before a salary-cap crunch led to a trade to the Florida Panthers in 2011. He finished his career in Chicago and will continue to live in the area with his family after taking a job in the Blackhawks' front office.

"After a brilliant career on the ice, Brian will remain an important part of our franchise," Blackhawks president and CEO John McDonough said.
