JIMMY HOWARD TO ANNOUNCE RETIREMENT IN COMING DAYS

With the Edmonton Oilers in a goaltending dilemma, General Manager Ken Holland reached out to his former goaltender in Detroit, Jimmy Howard. That's according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. Howard told Ken Holland that he is happy with his life at the moment, and is "putting retirement in motion." An official announcement from Jimmy Howard is expected in the next few days.

Howard, 36, was drafted in the second round, 64th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He's spent 14 seasons in the NHL, all with Detroit. In 543 regular season games, he had 246 wins, 196 losses, 70 overtime/shootout losses, a 2.62 G.A.A., a .912 save percentage, and 24 shutouts. In 48 career playoff games, he had a record of 21 wins, 26 losses, a 2.58 G.A.A., a .918 save percentage, and 3 shutouts. He represented the Red Wings at three All-Star games throughout his career in 2012, 2015 (selected, didn't play), and 2019).

Internationally, Howard has represented the United States on multiple occasions, most recently at the 2017 IIHF World Hockey Championships. In 6 games, he had 4 wins, 2 losses, a 1.86 G.A.A., a .920 save percentage, and 1 shutout as the United States finished fifth after losing to Finland in the quarterfinals.

Congratulations to Jimmy Howard on a great career, and all the best in retirement.
