12th year defenseman Danny Syvret(5) decides to hang up the skates after a pair of seasons in Germany last skating for Nurnberg Ice Tigers scoring 3 goals and 17 assists in 55 DEL games, then adding another 4 assists in 13 playoff matchups.
He has 644 AHL games to his credit and has been a part of 12 different clubs and had three straight 40+ point seasons but his best was a career high 12 goals and 45 assists with Philadelphia Phantoms in 2008/2009, the teams last year of existence.

He was traded in the second season of his two-year deal with Philadelphia Flyers, his third contract with the team, to New York Rangers and reassigned to their farm club in Connecticut, where he’s played 67 contests in 2013/2014.
The stocky-looking 5’11” 205 lbs. d-man has skated in 59 NHL games, putting up a modest 3 goals and 4 assists but hasn’t paid a visit to the show since late 2011.
He’s considered a top-two pairing blue liner in the minors but given a full campaign may play a fairly strong role as a bottom six, seventh guy in the lineup more than watching from the sidelines.
He’s packing his bags again, as he signed a one-year, two-way contract for ’11/’12 with St. Louis.
6th year defenseman Danny Syvret(25) has had quite the 2010/2011 season.
Signed in the offseason to a 1-year deal with Anaheim, he played there and in Syracuse before Philadelphia picked him back up early in the season. He’s been mostly down with Adirondack in the AHL but he’s up when it counts, playoff time and may just get to see some action.
