No More Niedermania

Scott Niedermayer, former defenseman for the Ducks, announced his retirement today. Niedermayer has been with the Ducks since 2005, and was the team captain and Conn Smythe winner when the Ducks won the cup in 2007.

Niedermayer is the only hockey player to ever have won a Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal, a World Championship, a World Cup, a Memorial Cup and World Junior Title.

For the first 12 years of his career, Niedermayer played on the New Jersey Devils, where he won three Stanley Cups, in 1995, 2000 and 2003. His fourth came in 2007 with the Ducks.

But more importantly than his winning record, Niedermayer has been an integral part of the Duck family. We wish him the best, and to have a happy retirement.
