9th year, former Philadelphia Flyers‘ 1st round draft pick in the 2005 draft (#29 overall), right wing Steve Downie(17) quietly called it a career after 2015/2016.

He wrapped things up with 8 AHL games for Springfield Falcons after being reassigned from contract team Arizona Coyotes after the mid-point of the season.

It was his first time in the minors since 2009 with Philadelphia Phantoms.

The 5’11” 191 lbs. feisty forward that led the league with 238 penalty minutes while playing for Pittsburgh Penguins in 2014/2015 played 434 NHL games scoring only a modest 76 goals and 120 assists with a +21 rating skating for 5 different teams and had 43 fights in the big league.

He also was part of the 2006 Peterborough Petes’ OHL Championship team.

The now 30-year old may have not accomplished all he wanted in his pro career but has to be pretty pleased looking back.
