There's no doubt about it, the current pandemic has changed the way lots of us live. 

Some more than others. 

That's why one veteran NHLer says he's considering retirement after COVID-19 has had him pondering the future. 

Anaheim Ducks goalie Ryan Miller says he might be ready to hang them up earlier than expected. 

"I mean the desire is there, but there's going to be a lot of factors. First of all, we're all going to have to address this new normal. What that means for sports and life - and wrapped up in that is family and how family is going to need to be taken care of during this time," Miller said to Sportsnet's Gene Principe. "There's a lot of talk here in California that schools are not going to be fully in session possibly into next year, that changes the dynamic around the house and what needs to happen and what's important."

"Hockey is very important to me but I'm trying to be realistic," he said. "I'm at the tail end of a long career and I would love to play so I'm going to hum and haw for you guys. I really like to play, it's a lot of fun, but I really want to see where things end up."

Miller will turn 40 in July and says he's got some gas left in the tank but just isn't sure with how things have gone regarding the pandemic.
