Joffrey Lupul says he coming to terms with the fact he "is not playing" hockey and "probably won't be going forward."

The Maple Leafs forward on long-term injured reserve described himself as a "retired hockey player" in a podcast he posted on his Instagram account.

"Now that I'm not playing, I tell myself I miss certain things, but I'm thinking about the best moments," said Lupul. "I'm not thinking about multiple surgeries and breaking bones and the bad parts, or the tough parts. Injuries and things like that are all part of it.

"Missing hockey, I'm missing those great moments, and not thinking about that day-to-day stuff, especially injuries when you're putting your body through things like that.

"When I think about things like that, it's easier to let go and he the fact your body is not in good shape, and probably not meant to play hockey any more.

"It's very easy to focus on the great moments, like playoff games or big goals. That's one thing I find myself dealing with now that I'm not playing, and probably won't be playing going forward."

Lupul was a guest on Episode Four of the podcast member-guest.com, devoted to "golf, music and less important things."
