Former Ottawa Sentators player Alex Burrows has announced his retirement from the league following the buying out of his contract by the Sens.

Burrows, 37, was named the assistant coach for the AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens.

Burrows played in 913 regular season NHL games in his career, which began in the 2005-06 season and 72 games with the Ottawa Senators in 2017-18.

“I’m happy with my career and have some great memories,” Burrows told NHLPA.com. “I met some wonderful people over the years. I’ll miss my teammates the most. The amount of fun we had working on our craft, the time we spent together away from the rink, the time we went through adversity together – those are things that I’m going to miss.

“I would like to also thank my family, who have been so supportive of me throughout my career. My wife (Nancy) has always been there for me. My kids (Victoria, Lexie and Jacob) were born in Vancouver and they got to see me play. I had some wonderful times in Vancouver and I enjoyed my time in Ottawa.”
