"It's a little bit of a relief because the last couple of years I wasn’t sure if I'd play another NHL game or be healthy again so now it's official: I am retired from the NHL," Hanzal told NHL Network's Craig Morgan. "If I was healthy, I would probably still be playing, but after three back surgeries and especially after the last one, I just can't do it anymore. I was doing everything I could after this last one and it took me a year to get back on the ice."

Hanzal sat out this past season while rehabbing in Europe and was limited to only seven games with the Dallas Stars in 2018-19. He played only 38 with the club in the previous campaign.

 Ricciardo better than Perez: Abiteboul takes Esteban Ocon under protection Cyril Abiteboul takes Esteban Ocon under protection and says that he shouldn't be ashamed of his achievements - Ricciardo tougher than Perez 36 to 78 points it is from Esteban's point of view Ocon opposite Daniel Ricciardo. The Frenchman fell significantly behind his team-mate, especially at the start of the season, but was able to work his way up a bit in the past races. Ocon already has his contract for 2021 in his pocket, and team boss Cyril Abiteboul is clearly behind his protégé.

Stars center Martin Hanzal is set for back surgery that will end an injury-plagued season in which he has already missed 29 games. The Dallas Stars are losing defenseman Marc Methot for four to six weeks after arthroscopic surgery, and center Martin Hanzal for three to seven days with a hand injury.

Martin Hanzal : For the last time , I don't know what that means. I'm just trying to teach you how to parallel park. Devin Shore: How long would your ideal hug last? Mattias Janmark: 35 to 42 minutes. Martin Hanzal : Isn’t that a little impractical?

"When I went to see the doctor again, it was either do another surgery or be done playing," Hanzal added. "Even the doctor said, 'We're not sure another surgery will help.' I still have a long life ahead of me. I don't want to do another surgery when it's not 100 percent sure it will even help."

Hanzal collected 127 goals and 338 points in 673 career contests. The 33-year-old spent nearly 10 of his 12 NHL seasons with the Coyotes, and he also appeared in 20 games for the Minnesota Wild in 2016-17.

The Czech center notched the fastest hat trick in team history (20:27) while playing for Arizona against the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2008. It was the first three-goal game of his career.

The Coyotes drafted him 17th overall in 2005.

Martin Sheen, who played the president on "The West Wing" for years, is the voice of an Election Day ad urging voters to "get the train back on its tracks." In the latest spot from the Lincoln Project, Sheen says, "Good morning. Today is the first day of the rest of America's life. One day. One day that will, one way or the other, change how this country feels about itself. One last push to get the train back on its tracks. One day that can not wipe out the last nine months or the last four years but can clear a path for a thousand better days ahead. One day, America on a tightrope.
