McDonald calls it quits

St. Louis Blues center Andy McDonald has decided to retire after continuous battles with post-concussion syndrome.

McDonald, 35, registered seven goals and 14 assists for 21 points in 37 games with the Blues this season.

Over 12 NHL seasons, McDonald accumulated 182 goals and 307 assists for 489 points in 685 regular-season games with Anaheim and St. Louis.

McDonald has been riddled with concussion problems over his career, though, which is the reason he's hanging up his skates.

"The last few years, too much of the focus became worrying about the next hit. I was always thinking about it," McDonald told

McDonald, who won the Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007, was set to become an unrestricted free agent this July.
