Eric Belanger Announces Retirement

Oilers_Eric_Belanger_2013After just a short time in Russia, Eric Belanger is retiring from professional hockey.

Belanger, 35, is calling it quits after just a handful of games with Avtomobilist of the KHL. The veteran NHL center was unable to find work in North America this fall after spending last season with Edmonton, and decided to make the jump — but felt “homesick,” according to RDS’ Francois Gagnon, and decided to retire after just seven games.
