Brenden Morrow retires with Stars after 15-year career

DALLAS (AP) - Brenden Morrow is retiring with the Dallas Stars after a 15-year career that started and ended with trips to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The 37-year-old Morrow signed a ceremonial one-day contract Thursday with the franchise that drafted him in the first round in 1997. He spent 12-plus seasons with the Stars, including his rookie season in 1999-2000 when the defending Cup champions lost to New Jersey in the finals.

Morrow was traded to Pittsburgh in 2013, spent one season in St. Louis and finished his career last season in a trip to the finals with Tampa Bay, which lost to Chicago.

The Olympic gold medalist with Canada on home ice in 2010 had 575 points (265 goals, 310 assists) in 991 career games.
