Former Penguin Sydor Announces Retirement

Originally a #1 draft pick (7th overall) by the LA Kings in 1990, Darryl Sydor is finally calling it quits after 18 NHL seasons.  Pittsburgh was among six teams (LA, Columbus, Tampa Bay, St. Louis, and the most in Dallas) Sydor has played for over those 18 seasons.

“Darryl was a true pro throughout his entire career and especially for the St. Louis Blues organization,” said Blues President John Davidson.

“I’ve known Darryl for a long time and he is truly one of the classiest professionals I have seen in this league,” said Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong. “I wish nothing but success in the future for Darryl, his wife Sharlene and sons Parker, Braden, Dylan and Cooper.”
