Wade Redden announced his retirement  after 14 seasons in the NHL today.

The 36 year-old said in a statement; "I would first and foremost like to thank my family and friends for their unconditional love and support, I would also like to thank my teammates, coaches and staff for all the great memories created throughout the years."

Redden retires with 109 goals and 348 assists in 1023 regular season games.

He was first drafted into the league second overall by the New York Islanders in 1995 but was traded to the Ottawa Senators before making his debut. He played 11 seasons for the Senators prior to joining the New York Rangers in 2008. 

He did not impress during his time at the Rangers and was demoted to the AHL. After two years in the AHL he joined the St Louis Blues before being traded to the Boston Bruins last year.

The Ottawa Senators made the playoffs every year that Redden was on the team. He played in the 2007 Stanley Cup finals with Ottawa.

He was voted to the NHL All Star game in 2002 and 2004, Redden also represented Canada at the 2006 Olympics in Turin.
