Report: Longtime goalie Tomas Vokoun plans to retire
Longtime goalie Tomas Vokoun has decided to retire, according to the Czech publication Sport.
Vokoun, 38, most recently played for the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2012-13 season, when he went 13-4 with a 2.45 goals-against average and a 91.9 save percentage in 20 games. He was limited to two games with the Penguins' AHL affiliate last season because of blood clots in his pelvis that ultimately required surgery.
In his 15-season NHL career, Vokoun was 300-288 with a 2.55 ERA, a 91.7 save percentage and 51 shutouts in 700 games. He spent eight seasons with the Nashville Predators, four seasons with the Florida Panthers and one season with the Washington Capitals, Montreal Canadiens and Penguins.
Vokoun was a ninth-round selection by the Canadiens in the 1994 draft.
