Centre Rob Schremp, who last played for Atlanta in 2010/11, has retired from pro hockey. Drafted in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, Schremp has 54 points (20G, 34A) in 114 games, and no playoff games, for Edmonton (2006/07-2008/09), the Islanders (2009/10-partway through 2010/11), and Atlanta (part of 2010/11). Schremp was considered a very talented player when he was picked, but once he made it to the NHL, he failed to make the most of his skills. The Thrashers let him go rather than qualify his contract after the 2010/11 season and he has spent the seven seasons since then playing overseas. Since he left the NHL, he has played for MODO Hockey of the SHL, Dinamo Riga of the KHL, now-defunct Latvian-based Metalurgs Liepaja of the Belarusian Extra League A, EC Salzburg of Austria’s EBEL, Ev Zug of the Swiss National League A, SCL Tigers of the Swiss NLB, Skelleftea AIK of the SHL, the AHL’s Portland Pirates, a second stint with SCL Tigers after their 2016 promotion to the NLA, the DEL’s Nurnberg Ice Tigers, and a second stint with EC Salzburg. Schremp’s NHL career-highs are 26 points and 13 goals, both in 2011 with the Islanders and Atlanta, and 18 assists in 2010 with the Islanders. Schremp finished his last NHL season with 26 points (13G, 13A) in 63 games between the Islanders and Atlanta. Schremp, 32, retires after finishing his final season with 47 points in 36 games during his second tour with EC Salzburg.
