News: Carcillo formally announced his retirement Thursday in an article posted on The Players' Tribune.
Impact: Carcillo had been trending toward retirement all summer, as his agent wasn't actively reaching out to interested organizations while the winger instead focused his efforts on establishing Chapter 5, a non-profit organization designed to help recently-retired players transition to post-career life. Carcillo named the organization in honor of late teammate Steve Montador, who wore No. 5 before walking away from the game due to concussion issues in 2013. With a new passion to invest his time and effort, Carcillo will wrap up a 429-game NHL career that included 100 points, two Stanley Cup trophies, and a whole lot of irritated opponents.
