(SportsNetwork.com) - Jamie Langenbrunner, who was on two Stanley Cup- winning teams and who captained the 2010 U.S. Olympic team to a silver medal, has retired from hockey.

The National Hockey League Players' Association announced Langenbrunner's retirement on Wednesday. The veteran forward was not on an NHL roster this season.

Langenbrunner, 38, said it was "a dream come true to have the opportunity to play in the NHL for 16 seasons," according to the NHLPA news release.

He played for the Dallas Stars from 1994-2002, winning a Stanley Cup with the team in 1999, and again for part of the 2010-11 season.

He played for the New Jersey Devils for parts of nine seasons, winning another Cup in 2003, and spent his last two seasons with the St. Louis Blues.

Last February, Langenbrunner had season-ending hip surgery after playing just four games.

He finished his career with 243 goals and 663 points in 1,109 games. He had 34 goals and 87 points in 146 postseason games.
