The 45-year-old defenseman will sign a one-day contract with the Boston Bruins at TD Garden and end a 25-year career in which he had 680 points (209 goals, 471 assists) and maintained a differential of more -301 with the New York Islanders, Washington Capitals, Ottawa Senators and Bruins.

« After 25 seasons of professional hockey, 1,680 regular season games, 200 Stanley Cup playoff games and hundreds of international games, I am proud to announce my decision to retire from the National Hockey League, » wrote Charlie on Instagram. In doing so, I am honored to return to TD Garden today to sign a one-day contract with the Boston Bruins and officially wrap up my career with the team that has meant so much to me and my family. There are so many people who have contributed to my success, which includes each of you, and I intend to thank everyone appropriately this afternoon. »
