Devan Dubnyk announced his retirement from the NHL on Saturday after 12 seasons.

The 36-year-old goalie, who last played in 2020-21 with the Colorado Avalanche, had 253 wins.

Selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round (No. 14) of the 2004 NHL Draft, Dubnyk was 253-206-54 with a 2.61 goals-against average, .914 save percentage and 33 shutouts in 542 games (514) starts with the Oilers, Nashville Predators, Arizona Coyotes, Minnesota Wild, San Jose sharks and Colorado Avalanche. He was 8-18 in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Dubnyk had his most success during his six seasons with the Wild from 2015-20 when he won at least 31 games four times, including an NHL career-high 40 in 2016-17. His 177 wins and 23 shutouts rank second in Wild history to Nicklas Backstrom (194 wins, 28 shutouts).

Dubnyk was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy and won the Masterton Trophy for perseverance in 2014-15 after he was traded to the Wild on Jan. 15, 2015, and went 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA, .936 save percentage and five shutouts in 39 games (including a Wild record 38 straight starts) for them to help them qualify for the playoffs.

The previous season in 2013-14, Dubnyk had played for three teams, the Oilers, Predators and Hamilton of the American Hockey League.

Dubnyk is currently an analyst for NHL Network.
