According to the Canadian Press, former Calgary Flame Jamal Mayers retired on Friday at the age of 39.

Mayers, a native of Toronto, Ontario who played center and right wing, played 27 games for the Calgary Flames in the 2009-2010 National Hockey League regular season. He scored one goal and five assists, and had 53 penalty minutes.

Mayers also played for the St. Louis Blues, Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks and Chicago Blackhawks from 1996-2013. He was on the Blackhawks team last season that won the Stanley Cup.

Mayers came to Calgary in the Dion Phaneuf blockbuster deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs on January 1, 2010. He remained with the Flames for the remainder of that season before signing as an unrestricted free agent with the San Jose Sharks on August 4, 2010.

Mayers was known for his high level of gritiness. In 915 regular season games, Mayers had 1200 penalty minutes.
