Streit Ends Up Retiring
Well, this post is relevant for two reasons... Mark Streit still belongs to Benson's hockey pool team for another month or so and he is also been on two money winning hockey pool teams in the past and that's a measure of success here on the blog site.
Yes, on Monday, it was made official that the long time Swiss defenseman filed his retirement papers, opting not to play one more season back in Europe and rather, hang them up for good.
Streit, a 12-year NHL veteran, started his career with the Canadiens and ended up signing with Montreal before this season started, but it was a relationship that didn't make it out of the first month of the season, when the Canadiens opted to go with a younger blueline in the end.
Streit was a good NHL defenseman in his career, especially for us poolies, as he finished with 434 points in 786 games played between Montreal, Long Island, Philadelphia and a short stint in Pittsburgh. He was a part of two 2nd place hockey pool teams, Stuart's team in 2012 and Scott G.'s team in 2014.
