Hilary Duff’s Husband Retires His Hockey Stick

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!”
