BY foxsports • January 12, 2010

Goaltender Curtis Joseph has retired, ending a 19-year career in the NHL in which he was No. 4 on the career victory list.

The 42-year-old Joseph is the winningest goalie to have never won the Stanley Cup. He had 454 victories, trailing only Martin Brodeur (585), Patrick Roy (551) and Ed Belfour (484).

He said Tuesday he had a "great career" and "didn't leave anything on the table." He spoke at a news conference in Toronto, where he ended his career with the Maple Leafs.

Joseph entered the league as an undrafted free agent. He also played for St. Louis, Edmonton, Detroit, Phoenix and Calgary.
