Silfverberg commented on the decision to retire as well. He noted:

“It’s been an honor and privilege to play in the National Hockey League. I want to thank the Samueli family for being who they are, gracious, community-minded owners that support their team while making a significant impact in our community. Obviously, I wouldn’t be where I am without my teammates, all the trainers and staff that have helped me along the way. Most importantly, thank you to my family who have supported me as I lived out a dream.”

Silfverberg has appeared in 817 career NHL games with Anaheim (2013-present) and Ottawa (2012-13), posing 168 goals and 373 points. There is no statement of whether he’ll return to Sweden or continue playing hockey outside of the NHL.
