Jeremy Roenick Announces Retirement 08/06/09

The end of a 20 year career has just ended. Jeremy Roenick just completed his press conference announcing his retirement. I will miss watching him play, personally.

He regaled a story about how, as a kid, he went to watch the Hartford Whalers play. He loved Gordie Howe play with his sons Marty and Mark. As Jeremy, 6 years old at the time, Gordie scooped up a hockey stickful of snow from the surface. He skated by Roenick and dropped it on his head. As he skated away and then skated back to Roenick , Gordie winked at him. That individual attention made a lifelong impression. It was a wonderful story to hear.

Here are some Jeremy Roenick stats:

20 NHL seasons, 1988-2009
5 teams: Chicago Blackhawks, Los Angelas Kings, San Jose Sharks, Phoenix Coyotes
Philadelphia Flyers

3 – 100 point seasons with CHI
8th draft pick of the Chicago Blackhawks, 1988

1,363 Games
1,216 Points
trails only Mike Modano (543) and Keith Tkachuk (525) for American born players.
703 Assists
513 Goals, 36th all time goal scorer

9 time NHL All Star

2002 Olympic Silver Medal
Two time Olympic medalist (1998 and 2002)
1988, 1989 and 1991 World Championship
1991 Canada Cup

All time scorer in World Junior Championship
