Justin Braun announces retirement from the National Hockey League

After thirteen seasons in the NHL, 36-year-old defenseman from Minnesota Justin Braun has announced his retirement from the game.

San Jose Sharks signed Justin Braun as a seventh-round draft pick in 2007. However, he made his debut in 2010 against Vancouver Canucks. After nine long years with San Jose, the Flyers picked him up in 2019-20. Eventually, Justin signed with the Flyers for one season in 2022-23. He played for New York Rangers for a short while in 2021-22 before returning to the Flyers ahead of the current season. Also Read: Why is the logo of Seattle Kraken one of the best in the NHL?

Justin has played 842 Regular season games, recording 34 goals and 165 assists. During his last game, the Flyers pushed the defensive defenseman to reach his 200th point. The Minnesota-born star has played 119 Playoff games, mostly with San Jose Sharks. He even helped San Jose to reach their first-ever Stanley Cup Finals in 2015-16.

The defenseman at 36-year-old is one of the best defensemen from the 2007 Draft alongside Ryan McDonagh and Kevin Shattenkirk. His numbers in 2022-23 were subpar and a rebuild in Flyers’ eyes meant that It was time for him to loosen his tied blades.
