Jeremy Roenick Celebrated By Toews, Blackhawks

On Sunday night before facing the Vancouver Canucks at the United Center, the Blackhawks brought out Jeremy Roenick for “One More Shift.”

Roenick stayed in the storylines through the first period. Current Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews picked up assists on both Hawks goals in the opening 20 minutes. Those two assists give Toews 330 regular season helpers in his career, moving him past Roenick into sole possession of 13th place in club history.

  1. I missed the start of the game – did they do a tribute before the game? Did he skate out onto the ice and did the crowd roar?

    JR – one of my all time favorite Hawks. The man left it all on the ice every game.

  2. I met him inline skating many years ago.. Class A+ guy, cool as shit, and real down to earth dude. It was an honor to have him.

  3. Yes ER the pre-game tribute to Roenick was outstanding and yes the fans gave him a well deserved roar of appreciation. You just know how much Roenick loved playing here and you could see him tear up at center ice as the din rose from the fans. JR was a fantastic Blackhawk player, and it was such a pity that his agent and Wirtz couldn’t find some common ground. Letting players like JR and Chelios go was a black mark on the organization IMO.

    Lets GO Hawks!

  4. Mike Keenan ruined that poor guy. Keenan wanted him to hit everything in sight and at 170 LBS. it tore up Roenick. I know Roenick said that Keenan made him a great player, but Roenick would have been much better under a coach like Q.

    I really enjoyed that celebration for Roenick. He deserved every second of it!!

  5. In his book he tells a story about getting hit so hard in the corner that he shit his pants. When he got back to the bench he says the stench was terrible and his biggest fear was telling Kennan he had to go to the locker room.
