Veteran forward Chris Thorburn announced Monday that he has officially retired from professional hockey.

Thorburn, 37, was unsigned for the 2019-20 campaign and last suited up for the St. Louis Blues, winning the Stanley Cup last year.

"It was an unbelievable ride with a storybook ending. As tough as it is to close this chapter, I am excited for the new adventures ahead for myself and my family," Thorburn said.

The Buffalo Sabres drafted Thorburn 50th overall in 2001. He had stints with the Sabres, Penguins, Thrashers, Jets, and Blues over his 14-year career.

He finishes his career 134 points in 801 games.
