Aaron Ward retires: A Video & Image Tribute

News broke earlier today that former Bruin and 98.5 SportsHub favorite Aaron Ward has retired today.

Ward played in the NHL for 13 years and won three championships. He also just underwent his third knee surgery, meaning Marco “Sturmface” Sturm is about a year away from retiring as well… (thank god.)

We’ve missed Ward since the Bruins shipped him off to Carolina so they could sign Morris. We loved Ward Wednesdays. Thankfully they got the right replacement in Thornton.

The Days of Y’Orr remembers his career with the very little video and photograph/photoshops available on the Internet.

Ours, too.

More video and photos after the jump…

This just might be Ward’s only break-away goal & he still has more than Paille

Cherish this poster, if you own it.

And, of course, we can’t forget his last impression in Boston:


Speaking of that sucker punch, we found this photo on Hockey Gone Wild.

Calling him a Carolina Retard doesn’t narrow it down, really.

Also, apparently Ward’s side gig is saving folks. Found this on HFBoard.

Aaron Ward saves lives
Who knew?

Clearly, the NHL is losing a great personality in Ward’s retiring. We just hope we hear him on the radio or see him on TV soon.
