Coffey retires after 21 NHL seasons

Updated:

(Toronto-AP) -- Paul Coffey retired Wednesday, ending a 21-year NHL career in which the star defenseman won four Stanley Cups.

The 40-year-old leaves the league as one of its most decorated defensemen. He was a 14-time All-Star who played on three Canada Cup winners and won three Norris trophies as the NHL's best defenseman.

Coffey's 1,531 points are second only to Ray Bourque in career scoring by a defenseman. He's the leading career playoff scorer among blueliners with 196 points in 194 games.

Coffey won Stanley Cups at Edmonton in 1984, 1985 and 1987 and then in 1991 with Pittsburgh.
