Even if he is the oldest player in the national hockey League (NHL) at the age of 43, the captain of Boston Bruins Zdeno Chara isn’t contemplating retirement in the short term.
“I certainly would not see too far in front, he said in an interview with the network, Sportsnet, Sunday. I live in the present and I always think that we’re going to play hockey this season.”
“This is where I’m at. Of course, I still love the sport and I still enjoy jumping on the ice to compete. If all goes well, I want to continue.
Chara has played in 1553 games in the NHL with the boston Bruins, Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders. He has accumulated 205 goals and 656 points while maintaining a differential of +288.
The Slovak has guided the Bruins to three Stanley cup finals, lifting the precious trophy in 2011.
