The Colorado Mammoth announced that goaltender Curtis Palidwor has made the decision to retire from professional lacrosse after 12 seasons.

The 5'10", 205-lb. veteran played in just one game for the Mammoth last season due to a severe eye injury suffered in the team's opening game. During his illustrious career, Palidwor appeared in 149 regular and post season contests, made 4,290 saves and sported a save percentage of 76%.

He spend time in net for Colorado, Toronto, Edmonton and New York since 2007. He was named the MVP on the 2007 Edmonton squad and was tabbed with "NLL Player of the Month" honors in March of 2008.

An electrician by trade, Palidwor recalls winning the 2004 NLL Championship with Calgary as the fondest memory of his professional career. "It's been a great ride," said the soon-to-be 38-year-old goalie. "I've played with some great teammates over the years and I'll miss hanging out with those guys, but now I'll have more time to spend with my family."

"We wish Curtis the best," said Mammoth Head Coach Bob Hamley. "He's been a great competitor, teammate and leader throughout his career."

The Mammoth's 2011 regular-season opener is Saturday, January 8th against the defending NLL champion Washington Stealth.
