Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere is expected to announce his retirement in mid-June, the Toronto Sun reported Monday.

"I do not see a reason to remain in the League," Giguere said, according to the QMI Agency. "I just want to be sure to do it right, to meet my agent Bob Sauve and talk to the Players' Association."

Giguere was 11-6-1 with a 2.62 goals-against average and .913 save percentage this season as the backup to Semyon Varlamov.

Giguere, 37, was the 13th pick of the 1995 NHL Draft by the Hartford Whalers.

In 17 seasons with the Whalers, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Avalanche, he was 262-216-64 (with 25 ties), a 2.53 GAA and .913 save percentage.

He won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Ducks lost the Final to the New Jersey Devils in seven games. He won the championship with the Ducks in 2007, when they defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games.

He was 33-17 with a 2.08 GAA and .925 save percentage in 52 playoff games, all with the Ducks.

Still in awe from that Superman-esque 2003 playoffs. So long, Giggy.

I'm not a fan, was never a fan. That usually means they did something to significantly damage us with their skill in the past. Glad to see you go Giguere, but at the same time, part of me was glad to witness parts of your career.

Exactly. This way, they can be a package deal! Kenny is salivating.

Makes sense two friends retiring at the same time, wish he wouldn't have played as good as he did especially against us nonetheless I have nothing bad to say about him enjoy your retirement Jiggy.

Must be nice being able to retire at your mid 30s or early 40s and never having to worry about money again *lol*

Isn't he something like 11-1 in playoff overtimes?

He was amazing in 2003 and pretty good in 2007 during their Cup run. I don't remember him doing much else outside of those two playoffs. I don't remember him ever being up for Vezina or being a consistently top goalie.
