He's been a player that's always shown some great potential but just can't stay healthy. 

Dallas Stars forward Martin Hanzal dealt with another injury plagued season last year and only played seven games in total. 

Hanzal has never played a full 82 game season after playing 81 games in 2009-10.

The 32 year old has 338 points in 673 NHL games over 12 NHL seasons and is just about ready to call it quits. 

“In Dallas, we had a preliminary agreement. I have to come to the camp in September, I will try to train a little over the summer, then I will go on the ice and see. And when it comes back, I may end my career, “ says Hanzal.

“I’ve had three back surgeries, even some age, and I know my career is slowly coming to an end. It’s my toughest decision, it’s about health, ” said the big winger.

With only one year left on his contract, the Dallas Stars won't have to worry about any long term salary cap implications.
