EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Veteran defenseman Andy Sutton has retired, ending a 15-year career beset by injuries.
Sutton played in 676 NHL games, most recently with Edmonton in 2011-12. He also suited up for San Jose, Minnesota, Atlanta, the New York Islanders, Ottawa and Anaheim.
Sutton scored 38 goals and 112 assists, had 1,134 hits, 1,164 blocked shots and 1,185 penalty minutes in his career.
However, his physical style of play took its toll. Sutton had 12 surgeries for various injuries and he never played an entire season. He reached 60 games only three times.
The 38-year-old Sutton spent the 2012-13 season on Edmonton's injured list with a knee injury.
