Hilary Duff’s Husband Retires His Hockey Stick

It seems Hilary Duff‘s baby boy will have both parents around the house once he’s born.

Hilary’s hubby Mike Comrie – who most recently played for NHL team the Pittsburgh Penguins – has announced that he is retiring from his hockey career after undergoing hip surgery two weeks ago, his third surgical procedure in five years.

“To have made the lasting friendships I enjoy today with so many of my former teammates is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life,” the 31-year-old Canadian hockey player says. “It’s the reward that has made all the hard work, the trades, the moves and the surgeries worthwhile.”

Hilary – who is due to give birth the couple’s first child within the next month or so – took to Twitter yesterday to announce her husband’s momentous decision to give up his hockey career.

As many of u know mike has announced his retirement.Its a bittersweet day! He had a wonderful career! but 3 hip surgeries in 5 years is alot!”

She continues to say,

“2day we are enjoying all the great memories mike had while playing in the NHL!now we have a big addition coming to our family!”
