Carl Hagelin, who spent the past five seasons in the Washington Capitals organization, announced his retirement on Wednesday, citing an eye injury that sidelined him for the entire 2022-23 season.
Hagelin, 35, was struck by a stick during practice in March 2022.
Acquired by the Capitals in 2018, Hagelin tallied 66 points — 20 goals, 46 assists — in 187 games.
A sixth-round draft choice by the New York Rangers in 2007, Hagelin was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup teams in 2016 and 2017. He also played for the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings in his 11-year NHL career.
