Markov not returning to Habs in 2017-18

The Montreal Canadiens announced on Thursday that they will not be re-signing veteran star defenseman Andrei Markov for the 2017-18 season.

Markov, 38, has spent his entire 16-year NHL career, to date, with the Canadiens.

In 990 career NHL games, Markov has registered 119 goals and 453 assists for 572 points with the Habs.

He sits sixth on the franchise's all-time leaderboard for games played, is tied with Hall-of-Famer Guy Lapointe for second place in team history for points by a defenseman, and ranks third for goals from the backend.

Markov was drafted in the sixth round, 162nd overall, by Montreal in 1998 and became a Canadian citizen in July 2010.
