Long-time Rangers defenseman and captain has decided to hang up his skates.

On Wednesday morning, Ryan Callahan announced on Twitter that he was calling it a career.

Callahan, 35. was originally a fourth round pick (127th overall) by the New York Rangers in the 2004 NHL Draft. He appeared in 450 games for the Blue Shirts over eight seasons. From 2011-14 he served as the captain of the Rangers.

New York traded Callahan to the Tampa Bay Lightning in a blockbuster deal at the deadline in 2014, bringing back forward Martin St. Louis in a deal that also included four draft picks.

Callahan was a fan favorite during his time at Madison Square Garden and the Rangers thanked him for his service on social media after his announcement.
