Today is a sad but happy day for our soon to be “Hall of Fame” goalie Chris Osgood has announced his retirement after 17 seasons. “After a lot of thought I have decided to retire,” Osgood announced. “I thought it was the best decision to make for the organization and myself. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I thought it would’ve been easier.” GM of the Red Wings Ken Holland wanted and was interested on bringing back Osgood for another season backing up starter Jimmy Howard.
Chris Osgood spent 14 of his 17 great NHL seasons playing of the Wings. He will always be remembered as one the our greatest goalies to have ever played while winning three Stanley Cups, 15 postseason shutouts, 8 all time with 74 Playoff wins and 10th all time with 401 regular season wins. Sneaker Bar Detroit would like to Thank Chris Osgood for all he has done for our city and team and we wish him the very best on his next chapter in life.
