The 35-year-old was a member of the H-B-K (Hagelin-Bonino-Kessel) line that was a menace back in 2016 and 2017 when the Penguins won back-to-back Stanley Cups.


Hagelin last played in 2021-2022 with the Washington Capitals and has been out of the game since then. A veteran of 12 seasons and 713 games, the Swede registered 296 pointsóbest of luck to him as he takes the next steps in his life.
