Daniel Carcillo appears ready to hang up the skates.

While speaking on the CSN Chicago's Kap & Haugh show Wednesday, Carcillo indicated he's leaning quite strongly toward retirement.

"I'm about 98 percent ready to move on," he said. "Thirty is a good age for me to get out and do some other things."

Carcillo has already announced his participation in Chapter 5, a non-profit organization aimed at helping NHL players after their careers end.

The 2003 third-round pick has appeared in 429 career games with a handful of teams, most recently the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Carcillo was limited this past season due to concussion, able to suit up for only 39 games in which he racked up four goals, four assists, and 54 penalty minutes. He did not draw into the lineup during the playoffs.

All told, he amassed 48 goals, 100 points, and 1,233 penalty minutes since entering the NHL during the 2006-07 season.
