Furthermore, Blindenbacher also states that his increasing age and the consequential health concerns were factors which led to his decision. The defenseman has been a part of the Swiss men's national team since the 2002-03 season. 

He is also one of the so called "silver-heroes" from 2013, when the Swiss national team made it to the final of the IIHF World Championship. In 140 international games, Blindenbacher scored eleven goals and 37 assists. (abu)
