Former Komets goaltender Kevin St. Pierre, 35, informed the Nottingham Panthers in England that he is retiring.
He played for the Komets from 2003 to 2007.
St. Pierre, known affectionately as "Frenchy" by his teammates, was the United Hockey League's MVP in 2004, and selected as the league's Best Goaltender in 2004 and 2007. With the Komets, he was 147-54-13 in the regular season, helping Fort Wayne to two regular-season titles, and he was 17-22 in the playoffs, helping them to one finals series.
He is the Komets' all-time leader in shutouts with 23.
A blind save he made against Rockford in 2006 -- which can be seen here -- gained international coverage and was selected by Yahoo! Sports as one of the 10 best of the decade in hockey.
