Cloquet, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Cloquet, Minn. native Jamie Langenbrunner says he wants to play a 19th season in the NHL, but he knows that none of his professional success would be possible without the mentors he had as a kid.

"I think I was really fortunate to grow up in a community, in Cloquet, that was a really humble community," said Langenbrunner. "I was able to learn from some great ambassadors of the game, and they taught me right from the get-go how to act, and it's made it real easy."

The Cloquet, Minn. native is currently a free agent after missing most of last season with a hip injury, but he says he is hopeful a team will sign him in the upcoming weeks.

Langenbrunner has totaled 277 goals and 473 assists in 1,255 games in his NHL career, counting both regular season and postseason contests, and he's played on two teams that have won the Stanley Cup.
