Tucker will move on and become a sports agent.
Darcy Tucker announced his retirement on Friday after not being able to land a job this offseason after scoring 10 gaols and 14 assists last season with the Avalanche.
“I know if I would have waited and hung around a bit longer I would have got something eventually but I don’t think it would have really piqued my interest too much,” Tucker said. “I’m not frustrated at all. Sometimes players maybe wait too long and try to find an opportunity that’s not really there.”
Tucker will retire with a total of 215 goals, 261 assists, 1410 PIMs.
