Longtime power forward Jason Arnott, who scored 938 points in his career, officially retired on Tuesday after 18 NHL seasons.

Arnott, 39, had 417 goals and 938 points in 1,244 games with the Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, Washington Capitals and St. Louis Blues. He last played in the NHL with the Blues in 2011-12.

Arnott will be best remembered for his Stanley Cup-winning goal for the New Jersey Devils in 2000.

"I would like to thank everyone who helped me throughout my NHL career, including my family, friends, teammates and fans," Arnott said a press release. "Playing in the NHL was my dream, and I am very proud and appreciative of the fact I was able to play at the highest level for 19 years, with the best players in the world. Each of the teams I played for provided me with great experiences and memories, and our Stanley Cup team in New Jersey certainly stands out among all of them."
