Hockey Bet Michael Peca Retires

Hockey bet fans had Michael Peca announcing his retirement on Tuesday as the two-time Selke Trophy winner ended his 13-season NHL career.

Hockey bet numbers had him finishing with 176 goals, 289 assists and 798 penalty minutes. Hockey betting stats had him playing in 864 regular-season games.

Hockey bet stats had him with six teams in his career. They were the Vancouver Canucks, Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets.  Hockey bet will remember him most for his time with Buffalo and for his 2002 gold medal. He won the Selke award that is given to the top defensive forward in 1997 and 2002. "The game has given me everything I've got," Peca said to ESPN, "I'll be forever thankful for the time I spent in the game. I don't think a day will go by where I won't spend at least a few moments of the day reminiscing about the time I had."

Hockey bet numbers had Peca playing on two teams that made the Stanley Cup Final as he was with Buffalo in 1999 and on Edmonton in 2006. Neither team was the hockey betting winner. "As time goes by you think about the things you would have wanted to be part of and winning a Stanley Cup was certainly one of them," Peca said. "But '99 with Buffalo and 2006 with Edmonton, I'll be hanging on to those moments for sure." Another hockey bet highlight will be the gold medal that he won while playing for Canada in 2002. "Without question, one of the greatest memories of all," said Peca.

Peca was simply a great defensive player who could also score and hockey bet stats indicated as much. He impacted hockey betting when he was in the prime of his career.  Hockey betting statistics indicated that he ended his career with a plus-66 rating. "It's just a case where ever since I was a young kid I wanted to help my team in any way possible," said Peca. "As I got older, I had the mindset that I wanted the coach to tap me on the shoulder regardless of what the situation is; whether it's to go out there to preserve a lead or go out there and help break a tie game. So maybe that statistic in a small way is reflective of how I approached the game."
