A young defenseman surprises and suddenly announces his retirement from the NHL

This morning, as part of the Philadelphia Flyers season review, GM Chuck Fletcher announced that young Quebec defenseman Samuel Morin played his last NHL game.

Morin, a first-round pick in 2013, has been left with no choice but to give up his dream of playing NHL hockey due to major issues and repeated knee injuries.

He is now retiring.

His knee has given up on him. On the other hand, in the next few days, the Flyers will have good discussions with Samuel to allow him to occupy a position within the organization. Interesting!

Morin, 26 years old, was drafted as a defenseman, but then he became a winger. In six seasons, he played 29 games in the Bettman circuit and 170 in the AHL.

We wish him a great career in the front office for Philadelphia. We are talking about a true hockey fan.

See here his only career goal in the NHL:
