TORONTO - Jamie Langenbrunner has retired after a 16-year NHL career in which he won two Stanley Cups.

The 38-year-old right wing from Cloquet, Minn., played for Dallas, New Jersey and St. Louis. He won NHL titles with Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003. He was on the U.S. Olympic team in 1998 and 2010.

Langenbrunner announced his retirement Wednesday in a statement by the NHL Players Association, thanking coaches and teammates for "helping a kid from Minnesota enjoy a long, fulfilling hockey career."

He appeared in 1,109 games, finishing with 243 goals and 420 assists. He entered the NHL with the Stars in 1995 and was traded to the Devils in 2002 in a deal that would reshape both clubs.

Langenbrunner spent parts of nine seasons with the Devils and was dealt back to Dallas in 2011. In 2011, he signed with the Blues. He played four games in 2012-13, but an injury forced him to miss most of the season.
