Burlington native Jay Pandolfo announced his retirement from the National Hockey League on Thursday. Pandolfo, 39, was a star on the Burlington High School hockey team before taking his talents to Boston University. He won a national championship at BU in his junior season. In his senior season, he led the Hockey East with 38 goals and was named the conference’s Player of the Year.
