01:48 PM ET 06.06 | St. Louis Blues forward Andy McDonald will be retiring from the NHL due to concerns about post-concussion symptoms. McDonald had five documented concussions over the course of his career. Apparently, the threat of long-term brain damage has been a concern of McDonald's for some time. Following the Blues' elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs, he and his family determined that retirement was the best course of action. In 685 career regular season games in the NHL, McDonald collected 489 points (182 goals, 307 assists). In 2007, he won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Anaheim Ducks.
