Kevin Oklobzija of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that Andrew Peters has retired from hockey. The former Sabres enforcer was last in the NHL with the Devils during the 2009-2010 season. Peters was with the Vancouver Canucks organization this season but didn't play a game. He skated for 2 games with the Rochester Americans this year.

Peters played in 229 NHL games scoring 4 goals and recording 650 penalty minutes.

Good guy, but amazing he made it in 229 games in the NHL. I was never too fond of his fighting ability either.

Wow, i don't know if I found it by chance but i didn't realize that the golf swing was a gesture not a goal and coincidentally found it in the first clip I clicked on on YouTube. LOL.

Good guy, I had a good conversation with him last year at the Team Meet and Greet. He was happy to talk to me about college and Syracuse and was a genuinely nice guy.

Terrible hockey player though.

We shall never see a goon be too dumb to tie down his jersey again without calling it "pulling a Peters"..... that and his fight with Ray Emery shall truly make him immortal!

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

Say what you want but the guy still made it to the NHL, more than most could ever dream of.

He had to put in the work to get there, and he some how managed to find a role.

The golf swing is legendary.

imissricher: i got an andrew peters mystery puck last year - not sure i could have gotten a worse player.

DevsMan84: A puck signed by Leeroy at the concession stand would have been better.

What's funny is calling Peters a terrible hockey player is like calling a successful local $5mil small business owner a terrible executive.

Perspective people!! Use it or lose it :evil:

Perspective would be realizing the context in which the discussion is occurring. In this case, its NHL players, not the general world population.
