Former Rangers G Valiquette retires

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Goaltender Steve Valiquette, who last played in the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers, has retired.

Multiple sources on Thursday reported the news.

The 34-year-old Ontario native spent the last two campaigns in Europe, but went 2-3-0 with a 3.74 goals-against average and one shutout at the start of the 2009-10 season for the Blueshirts before being sent to the minors.

A former eighth-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 1996, Valiquette went 16-14-5 with a 2.74 GAA and four shutouts in 46 games for the Islanders, Oilers and Rangers in parts of six seasons.
