Marchant spend the last 6 seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, where he contributed to the teams success. He was also apart of the Ducks 2007 Stanley Cup team. He was a key player of their power kill and used his speed to shut down the offense. Although Marchant never scored tons of goals, he frequently came through when the Ducks needed him. He is the Ducks leader in short-handed goals (eight).
Marchant is not leaving the Ducks for good, he will now be the Director of Player Development.
Marchant’s final words on his retirement:
“I want to thank the Rangers, Oilers, Blue Jackets and Ducks organizations, my teammates, the fans, and most importantly, my family, for their great support over the years,” said Marchant. “I’ve had an unbelievable experience playing in the National Hockey League, and it’s simply time to move on. I’m excited to stay with the Ducks organization in my new role and look forward to my post- playing career.”
Thanks for everything you have done for the Ducks. Glad to keep you around in the organization!
