Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Glen Wesley
is retiring after 20 NHL seasons.
The Hurricanes said Thursday that Wesley would move into the
front office as the team's director of development for defensemen.
The team will retire his No. 2 jersey next season.
The 39-year-old veteran of 20 NHL seasons is the only player to
have played each of the Hurricanes' 10 seasons since the team once
known as the Hartford Whalers moved to North Carolina.
He ranks sixth in NHL history among defensemen with 1,457 games
played. He is second to team executive Ron Francis with 903 games
in 13 seasons with the franchise.
He will join Francis as the only players with a retired number.
