Former NHL defenseman Marc Methot told TSN Radio Ottawa 1200 on Thursday that he is unlikely to play again in the NHL.

Methot hasn’t suited up since undergoing knee surgery last January while playing for the Dallas Stars. The 34-year-old admitted that he still experiences pain in his knee.

“I haven’t made any final or official announcement, but it’s looking like I’m probably done playing hockey,” Methot said. “I really tried to make an effort and get back and I just weigh the options and whether it’s worth putting my body through that kind of mental and physical excretion and it’s just not worth it.

.”.. I haven’t made anything official but I think I’m at a point now where I’m deciding it’s probably best for myself and the family that I step back from the game.”

Methot collected 123 points (22 goals, 101 assists) and 380 penalty minutes in 624 career games with the Ottawa Senators, Stars and Blue Jackets since being selected by Columbus in the sixth round of the 2003 NHL Draft.
