NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Forward Scott Hartnell has announced his retirement after playing 17 NHL seasons.

Hartnell posted news of his retirement to Twitter on Monday, just a few days before the regular season. The 36-year-old Hartnell was unsigned after spending last season in Nashville.

Known for his feisty attitude and the hashtag #HartnellDown that made light of how many times he fell to the ice, Hartnell put up 327 goals and 380 assists for 707 points in 1,249 regular-season games with the Predators, Philadelphia Flyers and Columbus Blue Jackets.

In a lengthy post, Hartnell said: ''17 years in the NHL was the best job anyone could ask for.'' The height of his career came in the 2010 Stanley Cup Final with Philadelphia when he had nine points in a six-game series loss to Chicago.
