The SportsXchange

Veteran NHL defenseman Wade Redden announced his retirement Thursday.

Redden, 36, split last season between the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins after the New York Rangers bought out his contract. Redden had spent the prior two seasons playing for their American Hockey League affiliate, then the Connecticut Whale.

"Playing in the National Hockey League has been a dream come true and I feel very proud and privileged to have played more than 1,000 games in 14 NHL seasons," Redden said in a statement released by the NHL Players Association.

--The Nashville Predators have recalled forward Filip Forsberg from the Swedish National Team, the club announced Thursday.

Forsberg, 19, was named Most Valuable Player, best forward and a media all-star at the 2014 World Junior Championships, helping the host nation to a silver medal, his third time placing at the tournament (2014: silver; 2013: silver; 2012: gold).

--The postponed game between the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes from Tuesday night has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. ET at First Niagara Center in Buffalo.

The game was postponed due to the hazardous weather conditions in the Buffalo area.

The rescheduled game will be played on the final day of the 17-day break in the regular-season schedule (Feb. 9-25), allowing 150 of the NHL's top players to participate in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
