Jamie Langenbrunner has officially hung up his skates after 16 seasons in the NHL.

Langenbrunner had 243 goals, 663 points, and 837 penalty minutes in 1,109 games with the Dallas Stars, New Jersey Devils, and St. Louis Blues. He won the Stanley Cup in 1999 with Dallas and then again in 2003 with New Jersey. "It was a dream come true to have the opportunity to play in the NHL for 16 seasons. The friendships I developed with my teammates, and also the people in the communities where I played, will always be cherished by my family and I," Langenbrunner said.

Jamie Langenbrunner is hoping that the Minnesota Wild will be interested in his services.

Langenbrunner is an unrestricted free agent and looking to bounce back after missing most of the 2013 campaign due to a torn labrum in his left hip. "I've been pushing my (agent) to do some talking (to the Wild) for me," said Langenbrunner. "That would, obviously, be the ideal situation from a family standpoint. I understand what they are trying to do (with recent personnel moves) and who knows what their choice will be, but I would welcome an opportunity to play there." Either way, Langenbrunner doesn't want to retire yet and would be interested in signing with other teams.

Jamie Langenbrunner hopes to play next season, but it doesn't look like it will be with the St. Louis Blues.

"I don't think I'm in their plans," said Langenbrunner. The Blues won't offer him a contract, but they haven't closed the door on sending a PTO his way. He appeared in just four games this past season and underwent season-ending hip surgery in mid-February. Langenbrunner said he is feeling much better now though.

Jamie Langenbrunner (hip surgery) is skating but the St. Louis Blues would have to advance for him to have a chance to play this season.

Langenbrunner underwent surgery in mid-February and it seems extremely doubtful he'd be able to return this season. Stranger things have happened, but we'll continue to consider him out for the season for the time being.

The Blues announced that Jamie Langenbrunner underwent successful hip surgery Friday.

The 37-year-old will miss the rest of the season, and says this is not the way he wants to go out. While he could eventually latch on in a bottom-six role, a la Mike Knuble, he won't be a big fantasy producer wherever he ends up.

Jamie Langenbrunner (hip surgery) addressed the media Saturday and indicated that he intends to rehab from his upcoming hip surgery and return to play again.

Langenbrunner, 37, made clear that this wasn't the way he intended to end his career and that he expects to continue playing once healthy enough to do so. His days as a fantasy contributor are likely over, but we wish him the best of luck in his recovery.

Jamie Langenbrunner has a torn labrum in his left hip and will likely miss the rest of the season.

It's not clear when Langenbrunner suffered the injury. He didn't dress Saturday night and wasn't at the morning skate. The 37-year old had one assist in just four games this season and his playing days were likely numbered before this injury. Safe to say, if you were still holding out hope he'd rediscover his form, it's time to cut bait.

Jamie Langenbrunner appeared in his fourth game of the 2013 season on Tuesday night.

He has dressed in three of the team's past four games after playing in just one of the first five. "It's definitely different for me than anytime in my career," said the veteran of 1,109 contests. Langenbrunner shouldn't be on your fantasy radar anymore and his playing days appear to be numbered.

Veteran winger Jamie Langenbrunner will play for the St. Louis Blues against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday. It's unclear who gets bumped out of the lineup for him at this time.

The long-named player has only appeared in one game this season, contributing nothing but 9:35 of ice time on Jan. 22 against the Chicago Blackhawks. His fantasy relevance is revealed in how many times he's been a healthy scratch this season, but the 37-year-old deserves credit for at least having a nice career overall.

Jamie Langenbrunner will spend his second straight game in the press box Monday.

Langenbrunner is being scratched because the Blues excelled in their season opener and don't want to tweak their lineup. The odds are that Langenbrunner will still make his season debut in the near future.
