Default Bonavista, Newfoundland native Adam Pardy retires

Peter Loubardias' old favourite has retired.

https://www.thetelegram.com/sports/h...medium=ios_app

The Flames' 2004 6th-round selection logged 342 games and scored 4 goals for Calgary, Dallas, Buffalo, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Nashville, adding 8 playoff games for Winnipeg and Calgary and 1 playoff goal with the Jets in 2015. He ended his career with a season playing at home for the ECHL's Newfoundland Growlers.

Damn. That sucks.

No real point in watching hockey anymore, is there?

I guess all players have to retire eventually but I never truly pictured this day coming. One of the greatest ever.

It seems like yesterday that the Antigonish Bulldogs wouldn't release his rights to play full-time in the QMJHL.

Here we are, 16 years later and he's officially retiring from hockey.

Also of note, while Pardy was in junior and was drafted by Calgary I made a bet (buy the other a beer) with a colleague of mine that Pardy would play a minimum of one game in the NHL.

Yep, Adam Pardy won me a beer. If only I got a beer per NHL game played.

Thats how consent works in Lake communities!
