Huselius announces retirement

Veteran forward Kristian Huselius has announced his retirement after trying to play through a nagging hip injury, he announced in AIK Stockholm's website.

Huselius played five games for AIK before realizing the pain was too much to handle. He had two goals and one assist.

"It has become worse and worse every game I played. So I have taken the decision to stop with hockey completely," Huselius said.

Huselius indicated that he was "disappointing not to be able to decide for yourself when to quit," he wasn't take to handle all the painkillers or go through the process of playing through the injury.

Huselius, 34, played in 662 career NHL regular-season games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus. Over his 10-year NHL career, he accumulated 190 goals and 261 assists for 451 points.

The native of Osterhaninge, Sweden, was originally drafted by the Panthers in the second-round (47th overall) of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.
