Glen Sather Announces Retirement

There are few names left in our modern day that are synonymous with NHL Hockey and Glen Sather was one of them. Pucks, ice, Glen Sather that's kind of the way it's been for over sixty years now. The lion announcing his retirement is one of the last legacy-holding legends handing off the game to the next generation.

I'm not going to list all the achievements Sather had throughout his career, there is simply not enough time for that, but I will briefly recap them. He was the coach or general manager for five Stanley Cup winning teams, won the Jack Adams Award, and was justly inducted into the Hall of Fame before he even came to the New York Rangers at the turn of the century.

While Sather was part of what many consider the dark years of the Rangers at the end of the 90s and early 2000s he was a major reason why they were able to navigate their way out of it. The team went on to enjoy consistent success over the next two decades while he was either their GM or in a senior adviser role. After his tenure, he now has the most wins as a GM in franchise history. May he enjoy his retirement and hopefully witness more Rangers success from the sidelines.
