Giguere ready to call it a career
TheFourthPeriod.com

When Finnish veteran Temmu Selanne played his last regular season NHL game in April, he hinted Colorado Avalanche goaltender J.S. Giguere may be following in his path.

After being saluted by the crowd, Selanne grabbed Giguere's hand and skated around the ice with him one last time.

According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Giguere may officially be hanging up his pads for good.

Lavoie reports that the 37-year-old wants to speak with his agent and the NHLPA before officially retiring this summer.

Giguere was drafted 13th overall in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft by the Hartford Whalers. In addition to the Whalers, the Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup winning goaltender went on to play for the Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Avalanche.

In recent years, Giguere has taken predominantly a backup role. In 22 starts with the Avalanche this season, Giguere posted a 11-6-1 record, with a .913 save percentage and 2.62 goals-against-average.

Upon retiring this off-season, Giguere will have played 597 career regular-season games, posting a career .913 save percentage and 2.53 GAA.
