According to RDS, former Colorado Avalanche goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere will officially announce his retirement from the NHL next Thursday.

The 37-year-old will remain in hockey with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada organization of the QMJHL.

Giguere spent his last three seasons with the Avalanche mostly in a backup role and became an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The netminder won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2003 and the Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Anaheim Ducks. He also had stints with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames during his 16-year career.

The Montreal native posted 262 wins in 597 NHL games with a career 2.52 goals against average and .913 save percentage.

Giguere is also the last former Hartford Whaler still playing in the NHL. He was a first-round draft pick of the team in 1995.
