Today Flames goaltender Roman Turek and former Flames captain Dave Lowry both announced their retirements from the NHL. Turek will likely return to the Czech Republic to play for a club team, while Lowry joins the WHL's Calgary Hitmen as an assistant coach.
Both moves were pretty much expected, what with the Flames trading for former Avalanche goaltender Phillipe Sauve yesterday.
Acording to espn.com, Jeff Hackett has decided to call it a career. Vertigo is the cause. The Flyers wasted no time in replacing him, they got Sean Burke. I remember Jeff as a youngster playing goal for the Islanders.
