McCormick forced to retire


Cody McCormick hasn’t played a game in well over a year, and yesterday, the Sabres’ forward announced his retirement. 

McCormick was hospitalized back in January 2015 after a blood clot was found in his leg. Instead of risking health and going back to the NHL, he has opted for retirement. 

His birthday is this Monday (Apr. 18) and he will be 33 years old. McCormick played in parts of five seasons for the Sabres, scoring 11 goals and 21 assists in 201 games. 

We thank Cody for his contributions and wish him the best in a healthy and speedy recovery.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
