Veteran defenseman Eric Gryba announced his retirement on Twitter, releasing the following statement: I’m hanging up the skates! I am proud of the career I was able to put together and couldn’t be more grateful of all the support I received along the way. I am excited for my next chapter and all the challenges that are to come.

The 31-year-old spent last season with the Devils, playing for their AHL affiliate in Albany.  He played 10 games with New Jersey which extended his NHL career to seven seasons between the Devils, Oilers and Senators, who drafted him back in the third round back in 2006.
