CALGARY -- Calgary Roughnecks veteran forward Kaleb Toth announced his retirement Thursday, ending a career that included four all-star appearances and three National Lacrosse League titles.

The Calgary native spent the last 11 seasons with the Roughnecks. He broke into the league with the Toronto Rock in 2000 before joining the Roughnecks prior to the 2002 season.

Toth holds almost every regular-season offensive record for the Roughnecks franchise including most games played (160), goals (274), assists (354), points (628) and game-winning goals (15).

He was an all-star in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and won league titles with the Rock in 2000 and The Roughnecks in 2004 and 2009.

"Over the years I have competed at the highest level that I was capable of, however over the last few days I have come to the realization that will no longer be possible," Toth said in a release. "I would like thank the Roughnecks, my teammates, past and present, for their support and for the memories we will always share.

"I would especially like to thank my family for their continued support and look forward to spending time with my wife, son and daughter and my future endeavours."
