I have been on the road for work stuff so I missed some good news (Semin's contract extension!). I am playing catch up today, but I wanted to post this Peter Bondra news:
NHL veteran and Slovakian star Peter Bondra retired from professional hockey Monday to become general manager of his country's national team.
"I kept it a secret for a long time. They will know overseas only after this press conference," Bondra said, according to the Slovak national hockey association. "I hope I can help Slovakia win another medal at the world championship."
