ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Glib as ever, Alaska Aces veteran defenseman Matt Shasby didn’t immediately cite “retirement” to confirm the end of his career because, well, that sounded a bit grandiose for a minor-league hockey player.
“I don’t believe you can retire from minor-league pro hockey — you just kind of do something else,” he said, deadpan.
Not that Shasby, who turns 29 next week, won’t miss playing the game that has been his passion since his youth and propelled him to stardom at Chugiak High and UAA, and then for six years as a pro.
