Jason Arnott’s 18-year NHL career included 1,244 games, 417 goals and 938 points. But the 39-year-old, who retired from the NHL Tuesday afternoon, will be most remembered for the double-overtime goal that won the New Jersey Devils the 1999-2000 Stanley Cup.

The Wasaga Beach, Ont., native won’t be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, but he was an integral part of that championship Devils team even before the double-overtime goal, scoring eight goals and 20 points in 23 playoff games. Selected seventh overall by Edmonton in 1993, Arnott played for six NHL teams, including the Oilers, Devils, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, Washington Capitals and St. Louis Blues. He posted three seasons of at least 30 goals and played in two all-star games, but never won any individual awards.
