After NHL players retire Morgan Rielly Jersey
, a lot of them stay relevant in the hockey world by taking various coaching or management positions in the game. Some of the biggest stars of the 2000s such as Patrick Roy, Mark Recchi and Doug Weight have all had (or currently have) a coaching spot in the big leagues, Joe Sakic and Steve Yzerman are currently NHL GMs, and the likes of Mario Lemieux (owner) and Brendan Shanahan (president) have other prominent roles in the hockey world that keep them relevant. Even the greatest goalie of the 2000s, Martin Brodeur, has had various management roles with the St.Louis Blues as well as helping put together Team Canada for the 2018 Olympic Games.
There are also many of the stars of the last decade who continue to play in the league Ryan Suter Jersey
, or at least have recently enough that we鈥檝e seen them around. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau can still play at a high level, and Ilya Kovalchuk is reportedly looking to return to NHL action after spending the last number of years in the KHL. Martin St.Louis, Marian Hossa and Vinny Lecavalier have only recently retired, while Jaromir Jagr and Jerome Iginla are toiling with the idea.
But there are a number of players who had such incredible NHL careers, and then seem to disappear and never seen from or heard from again. Whether it be that they鈥檙e focusing on family, moved back overseas http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-henrik-sedin-jersey
, or just want to be out of the limelight, it sometimes feels strange to see someone regularly on TV and in the news and then never again.聽With that, here are 20 great NHL players from the 2000s who have seemingly disappeared into oblivion.
Panthers owner-for-a-few-more-hours Jerry Richardson is expected to make an appearance today.
Disgraced by recent allegations of workplace misconduct, Richardson hasn’t been spotted during the sale of his team to David Tepper, but he’s kept a low profile in recent years anyway.
Accoording to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he’s scheduled to聽address the owners one final time before they vote to approve the sale at their meeting in Atlanta.
The 81-year-old Richardson was once one of the most powerful owners in the league Anthony Beauvillier Jersey
, a close confidante (if not patron) of commissioner Roger Goodell. But he was on the wrong side of the league’s efforts to get back to Los Angeles.
He was pushing for a joint stadium in Carson for the Chargers and Raiders, a very old-NFL move which fell by the wayside for bigger new-money deals in Inglewood by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, and eventually the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas.
Losing that power struggle to a new guard of owners was part of the reason, along with his health, that he backed away from most league business in recent years. He stepped aside from all his committee assignments, and only showed up at the May meeting in 2016 because it was in Charlotte Wayne Simmonds Jersey
, as he had skipped league business for most of the last five years.
Richardson had a heart transplant in February 2009. He’s about to pocket $2.2 billion in cash as part of Tepper’s bid. At some point after that, the league will likely wrap up its investigation into the activity that triggered the sale, which included allegations of sexual and racial harassment.
