Antoine Vermette is calling it a career.

The 36-year-old officially retired Thursday, ending a 14-season NHL career that included a Stanley Cup championship with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2015 and a Cup Final appearance with the Ottawa Senators in 2007.

Vermette scored two game-winning goals in the championship round against the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2015.

He was skilled in the faceoff circle and became a frequent trade-deadline target as a result. The center produced 515 points in 1,046 games for the Senators, Columbus Blue Jackets, Phoenix and then Arizona Coyotes, Blackhawks, and Anaheim Ducks.

He last played in 2017-18 and spent the final two campaigns of his career with the Ducks.
