Avs' Adam Foote to hang up skates

DENVER (AP) - Longtime Colorado Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote is retiring after 19 years in the NHL.

The club scheduled a news conference for Friday at the Pepsi Center.

Foote has appeared in more regular season and playoff games than any other defenseman in franchise history and was a member of Colorado's two Stanley Cup champions.

Foote's 17th season with the Avalanche has been marred by injuries. The captain has been sidelined by a leg injury since March 16. He also missed time this season with a concussion.

He possibly could play this weekend, when the team wraps up it season with games against Dallas on Friday night and Edmonton on Sunday.
