Brian Gionta, who last played with the Buffalo Sabres, said he has received contract offers from teams. However, the NHL veteran is not sure if he wants to play again.

This summer, he began like he was going to play again. But he’s 38-years-old and the likelihood is that he’s nearing the end of his career and may likely retire.
