TORONTO (AP) -Eric Lindros is expected to announce his retirement Thursday after 13 seasons in the NHL, according to a report.
The 34-year-old forward played for the Dallas Stars last season and became an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He had 372 goals and 493 assists in 760 games for Philadelphia, Toronto, the New York Rangers and Dallas.
Lindros is expected to announce his decision at a press conference in his hometown of London, Ontario, according to The Canadian Press wire service, which cited an anonymous source.
Lindros won the Hart Trophy in 1995 and was part of the Canadian Olympic team that won gold in 2002, but he also battled injuries throughout his career.
Lindros was regarded as the NHL's next big star when he entered the league but he got off to a rough start after he refused to play for the Quebec Nordiques, the team that drafted him first overall in the 1991 draft.
The Nordiques traded his rights to Philadelphia a year later and Lindros flourished with the Flyers, winning the MVP award in 1995 and scoring 40-plus goals in three of his first four years.
He was traded to the Rangers in 2001 after clashing with Philadelphia general manager Bob Clarke and other Flyers officials, largely because he questioned the medical treatment he received while with Philadelphia.
