Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Eric Lindros, the extremely talented center who has battled with injuries throughout his career, is expected to announce his retirement on Thursday.

The 34-year-old Lindros spent last season with the Dallas Stars, scoring a career-low five goals with 21 assists in 49 games. This came on the heels of solid start to the 2005-06 campaign with the Toronto Maple Leafs, in which he was limited to 33 games due to a broken wrist and posted 11 goals and 11 assists.

Lindros won the Hart Trophy as league MVP with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1995, and the following season recorded career-highs of 47 goals and 68 assists. However, the six-time all-star has been plagued with injuries since then and has eight documented concussions over his 12 NHL seasons.

He became the fifth-fastest player in NHL history to reach 500 career points when he did so with the Flyers in 1997-98. However, a nasty dispute with the Flyers organization and team president Bob Clarke forced the club to trade him to the New York Rangers in August of 2001. Lindros missed the entire 2000-01 campaign as an unsigned restricted free agent before the deal.

He enjoyed two relatively injury-free seasons with the Rangers, but played in just 39 games with the team in 2003-04 after another concussion ended his year in late January.

In career games with the Flyers, Rangers and Maple Leafs, Lindros has racked up goals, assists . The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder was originally selected first-overall by the Quebec Nordiques in 1991, before refusing to play and demanding a trade that landed him in Philadelphia.
