Zdena Chara is leaving the NHL

Bowl on Instagram: “After 25 seasons of professional hockey, 1,680 NHL regular season games, 200 Stanley Cup playoff games and hundreds of international games, I am proud to announce my decision to retire from the National Hockey League. That being said, I am honored to return to TD Garden today to sign a one-day contract with the Boston Bruins and officially end my career with the team that has meant so much to me and my family. There are so many people who have helped contribute to my success, including all of you, and I look forward to being able to properly thank everyone this afternoon.

Sports network: Some career numbers.

Norris Trophy (2008–09)

Evan Raval: “Zdena Chara was such a unique player that teams spent almost two decades trying to find their Chara. However, he was one of a kind. Ottawa lost the Stanley Cup by drafting Redden over Chara when both became UFAs. Boston broke the bank.”
