Despite being under contract in Switzerland until 2025, former Vancouver Canucks forward Sven Baertschi has announced his retirement from professional hockey at the age of 30.

Baertschi joined the Canucks in March 2015 after being traded to them by the Calgary Flames for a second-round pick. Pick that turned into Rasmus Andersson. He went on to appear in parts of six seasons for the Canucks between 2015 and 2020.

In those six seasons, the Bern native appeared in 225 games, recording 110 points (58 goals, 52 assists), 56 penalty minutes and was a minus-28.

Congratulations to Sven Baertschi on a great professional hockey career and all the best in retirement!
