Jordin Tootoo announces retirement from NHL: ‘I owe my life to this game

Jordin Tootoo is hanging up his skates after 13 NHL seasons. The first Inuk to make the league announced his retirement Friday in Brandon, Manitoba, where he spent four seasons in junior hockey with the Wheat Kings.

“It’s difficult to describe the emotions I feel as I look back,” said the right wing who played in 723 NHL games between Nashville, New Jersey, Detroit and Chicago. “I’ll sum it up in one word: gratitude. The camaraderie with the players and the connection with the fans is is one thing you need to experience to believe. It has enriched my life beyond words.”

Tootoo, who was drafted in the fourth round by the Predators in 2001, netted 65 goals and 96 assists over the course of his career and was never one to shy away from dropping the gloves. He amassed over 1,000 penalty minutes and more than 90 regular-season fighting majors, according to The 35-year-old’s career ended after an upper-body injury kept him out for the entire 2017-18 season.

“I’m retiring with no regrets,” said Tootoo, who hails from Rankin Inlet of the Nunavut Territory that has a population under 3,000. “It’s been a great run and now it’s time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life.

“I know I will always remain close to my native roots and will continue to work to enhance life for native children who are suffering . . . I want to work with communities to create awareness around mental health and to support suicide prevention initiatives.”

In 2011 he started the Team Tootoo Fund to assist nonprofits addressing suicide awareness and prevention, and supporting at-risk youth — topics that hit close to home. Tootoo lost his older brother Terence to suicide in 2002 following an arrest on drunken driving charges.

“His final words to me were, ‘Jor, go all the way. Take care of the family. You are the man,’” he said at the press conference announcing his retirement. “I can only hope that I lived up to your expectations, bro.”

Tootoo credited the city of Nashville, where he spent the first eight years of his career, with helping him get through the grieving process. He also thanked Predators general manager David Poile and former Nashville coach Barry Trotz for helping him realize that he needed help with his alcoholism, and Red Wings general manager Ken Holland, who believed in him during his recovery.

Tootoo, who became emotional during his speech, credits everything to hockey.

XFL 2021 Live Stream: How to watch the new football league online on Volokit 2

The XFL is back!


Football fans won’t have to wait until September to watch their favorite sport – the XFL is back! After a 19 year hiatus, Vince McMahon has relaunched his alternative football league and we’re here to make sure you catch every one of the 43 games in the 2021 season – regardless of where in the world you are – with our XFL live stream guide.

The XFL is a winter and spring football league that originally debuted in 2001 but only lasted one season. While its first iteration was known for gimmicks (both on and off the field as it was created by the WWE’s chairman) the relaunched XFL will be “football and football only”.

The 2021 XFL season will feature eight teams that are divided into two divisions. The New York Guardians, DC Defenders, Tampa Bay Vipers and St. Louis Battlehawks will play in the East Division while the Seattle Dragons, Los Angeles Wildcats, Dallas Renegades and Houston Roughnecks will play in the West Division. Each team will play a total of 10 games this season with five games at home and five on the road.

As for the schedule, the XFL season will be much shorter than the NFL’s 17 week regular season and there will be 10 weeks of regular play from February to April with four games played per week. After week 10, the top two teams from the East Division and West Division will face off in the playoffs to earn a spot in the 2021 XFL Championship Game on April 26.

Will the relaunched XFL be able to carve out a place for itself and succeed where McMahon’s last attempt at creating an alternative football league failed? Read on to discover how to get a XFL live stream from anywhere in the world.
