Devils’ Stevens retires after 22 years
New Jersey Devils defenseman Scott Stevens announced his retirement after more than two decades in the NHL on Tuesday, saying a year off showed him that he could live without hockey.
“I think the game is more mental than physical. You have to be in tremendous shape, but you have to want to do it in your head,” the 41-year-old Stevens said. “At this point in my career I didn’t think I could put the mental parts there every day, and that’s a big part of playing this game.”
