Tuukka Rask spoke about his decision to retire.

Rask missed most of the season while recovering from hip surgery. He attempted to return in January, but after Rask posted a 2-2-0 record, 4.28 GAA, and .844 save percentage in four games before he went back on the sidelines and eventually announced his retirement. "It couldn’t hold the everyday grind — practicing and playing. That’s what I found out pretty quickly,” Rask said, reflecting on his comeback attempt. “I felt really good during the rehab. I was skating, started twice a week, going three times a week, four times a week and it was fine. But I was by myself or with the coach with one guy shooting so it's a little different from live action in a game or practice. And then playing that Anaheim game, I kind of stretched and tweaked my groin and hip a little bit and it just kept aggravating even more. And then it was kind of time to be honest with yourself. I figured that I could have kept pushing, but what’s the benefit for me playing at 60% and kind of taking time off, taking a week off here, taking two weeks off, kind of taking a spot away from (Jeremy Swayman). So I just figured it’s more beneficial for everybody to call it. I had a great career, and I have no regrets." He had a 308-165-66-52 record, 2.28 GAA, and .921 save percentage in 564 contests over his career. Apr 01 9:39 am (EST)
