According to NHL.com, citing a report from Comcast Sports Net Bay Area, Rob Blake will announce his retirement in the days following the NHL Stanley Cup Finals that ended tonight.

He is a no-brain Hall of Fame inductee. Blake is one of 22 members of the Triple Gold Club: Players who have won a Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold Medal, and World Championships Gold Medal.

He finishes his career among all-time leading defencemen in goals (240), assists (537), power play points, and games played (1270). He is also near the top in playoff performance, having played in 146 games, with 26 goals and 47 assists.

Last season, Blake was captain of the San Jose Sharks and made $3.5 million. He was second among the team's defencemen in goals, assists, plus-minus, and hits. He was also the team's leading shot-blocker in the playoffs.

Blake was one of the subjects of my interview with Randy Hahn, and that portion can be seen here .
