Saying goodbye to familiar faces is never an easy endeavor, especially if the departure could be argued as premature.

Paul Kariya’s NHL career was cut short after a bout with post-concussion syndrome kept him off the ice for the 2010-2011 season. The same ailment has forced him to hang up the skates for good as he announced his retirement earlier this summer.

Kariya split his 15-season career between four teams, starting with the team formerly known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, moving to Colorado for a single season, then to Nashville for a brief two-year stint and ending in St. Louis for the final three seasons.

Kariya had two seasons with over 100 points and managed to hit the 50-goal plateau once, and that’s just the basic statistics.

This speedy forward adds two Lady Byng Trophies, four puck-control competition championships, six appearances in the NHL All-Star Game and an Olympic Gold Medal to his resumé making him a definite candidate for acknowledgement in the NHL Hall of Fame.

Here is a short list including a handful of the many highlights from Kariya’s possibly Hall of Fame worthy career.
