Cloquet native Jamie Langenbrunner has announced his retirement.

The 38-year-old forward appeared in 1,109 games for the Dallas Stars, New Jersey Devils and St. Louis Blues and played on the 1998 and 2010 U.S. Olympic hockey teams. He scored 243 goals and had 420 assists in his career. He also won Stanley Cups with Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003.

"It was a dream come true to have the opportunity to play in the NHL for 16 seasons. The friendships I developed with my teammates, and also the people in the communities where I played, will always be cherished by my family and I," Langenbrunner said in a statement. "I would like to thank Bob Gainey, Lou Lamoriello and Doug Armstrong for giving me the opportunity to play against the top players in hockey, in the best league in the world. I'd also like to thank my coaches and teammates for helping a kid from Minnesota enjoy a long, fulfilling hockey career.

"Finally I'd like to thank my truly amazing family for all their sacrifices they made so I could live my dream."

Langenbrunner was selected 35th overall by the Stars in the 1993 NHL Draft, right before the teams's first season in Dallas after moving from Minnesota.
