    Aw man, I hope whatever situation he and his family are going through ends up being okay. His short time with the Sabres wasn’t that great, but I did like him as a player and he seemed like a really good guy.

    I know his mom passed away a few years ago, so hopefully it's nothing else family related.

    If the case is that he (or his family) didn't want to see him playing in Bratislava, did he have any other ways to cancel his contract than announcing retirement (if that even cancels it without consequences)? Because even if there are some serious problems right now, how do you know you aren't going to continue your career in one or two years?

    He was reported missing at one point, too. Wonder what happened.

    In Europe, you can always terminate the contract in mutual agreement if need be. Not like the NHL.

    I know he had a rough time during childhood, hope everything is okay and that he's got a good amount of money left from his career.

    Biggest waste of talent I personally have ever seen in a NHL uniform.

    Up there with Brad Boyes.

    “Serious family problems” couldn’t possibly be family related.

    I went on the internet and found this:

    Chris Stewart at eliteprospects.com

    Plays in the Allan-Cup apparently. For the Hamilton Steelhawks.
    Their goalie is none other than Daniel S(v)edin.

    Man, it's got to be bad if he doesn't even bother taking a personal day and instead goes straight to retirement.

    He was a popular guy in the Wild dressing room, a stand up teammate and a great quote with the press.

    He had a good run. Best wishes for what is almost always a tough transition.

    Wow. This whole thing is really weird. HC Slovan Bratislava says he's retired. Plays a game in the ACH. Signs a contract in England. Not retired then??

    Clearly isn’t an issue with being overseas... as for a family issue, who knows.

    It's funny, I remember him being described at the 'hard-working brother', as Anthony was notoriously lazy.

    Probably stopped caring once he started making millions.
