Retired or active challenge: answers

Check your results for our “retired or active” quiz. Answers reflect whether they played professionally in 2013-14.

  1. Ruslan Fedotenko, ACTIVE. He scored the Stanley Cup winning goal for Tampa in 2004 and earned another ring with Pittsburgh in 2008. Last season, he had eight goals in 33 games for Donbass Donetsk of the KHL.
  2. Oleg Kvasha, ACTIVE. One of the principals whom the Panthers dealt to acquire Roberto Luongo (the first time), Kvasha scored 81 times in 493 NHL games. Last season, he toiled in the KHL for Avangard Omsk and Moscow Spartak, collecting four goals in 44 games.
  3. Mark Parrish, INACTIVE. The other principal who went to the Islanders for Luongo in 2000, Parrish – who was fourth in Calder Trophy voting in 1999 – ended his professional hockey career in 2011-12 with Binghamton of the American League. He now does color commentary for St. Cloud State.
  4. Glen Metropolit, ACTIVE. A defy-the-odds story, Metropolit forged a 407-game NHL career with seven franchises before jumping to Switzerland in 2010. According to reports, he’ll be playing in Germany in 2014-15.
  5. Vinny Prospal, INACTIVE. A member of seven NHL teams for more than 1,000 games, Prospal officially announced his retirement in January. In 2002-03, he ranked fourth in the league with 57 assists.
  6. Fredrik Modin, INACTIVE. Technically, Modin played a game last year, in Sweden’s fourth division, as something of a lark. He’d never played for his alma mater’s men’s team, and his oldest brother’s son was on the club, so he did a one-night only performance for Njurunda. His professional career came to its legitimate conclusion in Calgary in 2010-11, when injuries forced him out.
  7. Pavel Brendl, ACTIVE. After failing to carve an NHL career, the highly touted prospect has played in Sweden, Russia, Finland, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany since 2006-07.
  8. Ladislva Nagy, ACTIVE. A 71-goal scorer for the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL in 1998-99, Nagy had 115 in 435 NHL games with four clubs before hopping to the KHL in 2008. He spent last season in Finland with Jokerit.
  9. Roman Hamrlik, INACTIVE. A three-time All-Star Game participant and a gold-medal winner with the Czech Republic in 1998, Hamrlik announced his retirement prior to the start of 2013-14. All tolled, he played 1,395 NHL games, collecting 638 points and 1,408 PIM.
  10. Deron Quint, ACTIVE. Quint, who as an NHL rookie in 1995-96 tied a record by scoring twice in four seconds, left the NHL during the 2004-05 lockout and has played the vast majority of the past 10 years in Europe. Last season, he toiled for Moscow Spartak and Red Army and is slated to play for Traktor Chelyabinsk in 2014-15.
