Fleury Ends Comeback, Retires As A Flame

After being released by the Calgary Flames last week, Theoren Fleury is retiring as a member of the team he gained his stardom playing for. This from the AP:

The 41-year-old forward has decided to give up his comeback attempt and retire as a member of the Calgary Flames.

“I could not sign with another team,” he said. “I retire a Calgary Flame.”

Fleury last played in the NHL in 2003 and hasn’t played for the the Flames since 1999. After an 11-year stint in Calgary in which the diminutive, yet agitating forward scored 362 goals and set the team’s career scoring record, which has since been broken by Jerome Iginla, Fleury was dealt to the Avalanche. He later had brief stints with the Rangers and Blackhwaks, but ultimately off-the-ice issues derailed his career after he left Calgary.
