"Josh has been one of this team's steady go-to guys and we'll miss his presence both on and off the field," Colorado Mammoth general manager Steve Govett said. "It's rare to have a man spend his entire career with one franchise and we're proud to have had Josh with us since the beginning."

The Princeton graduate is a native of Annapolis, MD and currently lives in Boulder.

Sims's retirement leaves John Gallant as the only original team member of the Mammoth's inaugural season.
