| After 1 season with the Rangers, Markus Naslund is set to retire. According to many, if Naslund didn't retire (because he has a no-movement clause) he would have been bought out of his contract. As the all time leader in points and goals for the Canucks, it seems it will only be a matter of time till #19 is retired.
Naslund officially announces his retirement.
