BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray says forward Cody McCormick has decided against resuming his NHL career a year after of a blood clot was found in his left leg.

McCormick does not want to jeopardize his health, Murray said in providing the update during the Sabres season-ending news conference on Monday. McCormick has not played since scoring a goal on Jan. 10, 2015, a day before he was hospitalized after the clot was discovered.

McCormick spent this past season on injured reserve after failing his pre-training camp physical. He is an 11-year veteran who spent parts of six seasons in Buffalo, and has one more year remaining on his contract.

Used mostly in a checking role, McCormick has 21 goals and 65 points in 405 career games.
