Jeremy Roenick is now involved with a group that wants to buy the Coyotes and keep them in Phoenix.
Roenick is revered in Phoenix and will be inducted to their Ring of Honor on Saturday so this announcement could not have come at a better time. Roenick said he was approached weeks ago by ex-San Jose Sharks CEO Greg Jamison and has spoken to some of his business associates in the interim. Should the group be successful and keep the team in Phoenix, Roenick's status in the desert will be even higher. Fri, Feb 10, 2012 08:29:00 AM

Jeremy Roenick was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Thursday.

The ceremony took place in Buffalo and Roenick who was inducted along with Derian Hatcher, Kevin Hatcher, Art Berglund and former USA Hockey physician George Nagobads, was quite complimentary towards Commissioner Gary Bettman. "Thank you for letting me speak my mind, letting me have a personality, and for everything you've done for the National Hockey League and where you've brought it. It's truly a better game now than it ever has been," Roenick said to the commissioner. "Thank goodness I'm retired because there's no way I could play with these kids today."

Jeremy Roenick will be honored by the Chicago Blackhawks prior to Sunday's game against the Sharks as a part of their Heritage Night series.

Roenick began his NHL career in Chicago, appearing in 524 games with the organization that picked him eighth overall in the 1988 draft. He ended his stint in the NHL with the Blackhawks' Sunday opponent, the San Jose Sharks, this past summer and it should be special night for the retired veteran.

Jeremy Roenick, who retired earlier this month, says he should have been a career Blackhawks player.

"I began my career with the Blackhawks and should have ended it with the Blackhawks," Roenick said. "And there should have been no in between the Blackhawks. I should never have left. I didn't want to leave. I loved Chicago and felt loved in Chicago." Roenick spent his first eight NHL seasons in Chicago until the Blackhawks traded him for Alexei Zhamnov. After the trade, Roenick went on to play for 12 more NHL seasons between Phoenix, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and San Jose before retiring. He'd still like to work with the Hawks organization, and has suggested he'd be open to an ambassadorial role.

Jeremy Roenick has announced his retirement from the NHL.

"I am not only happy but proud of the 20-year career that I have had in the National Hockey League," said Roenick. "To end my career on my terms was very important to me and I must thank [Sharks general manager] Doug Wilson and the San Jose Sharks organization for providing me that opportunity." Roenick played in 20 NHL seasons between the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. In 2007 he became just the third American born player to reach the 500 goal plateau and he finished his career 39th on the all-time points list with 1,216.

Jeremy Roenick appears to be getting ready to announce his retirement.

The Sharks have a new conference scheduled for Thursday and it is believed that Roenick will take that opportunity to retire. Roenick's career has been winding down for a while now and he hasn't really had any fantasy value since the lockout. However, he will go down as one of the league's elite players, finishing his career 39th on the all-time points list with 1,216. He also was just the third American-born player to reach the 500-goal milestone.

Jeremy Roenick said on a Chicago radio station Thursday, that Detroit coach Mike Babcock doesn't like Chris Chelios.

The former Blackhawk and current Shark is certainly stirring up the pot as the Red Wings and Blackhawks get ready to play Game 3 on Friday in Chicago. "The coach just doesn't like him for some ungodly known reason," Roenick said. "I think he's got a grudge against American players, but he does not like Cheli at all. I don't know if it's a hatred because hate is a strong word, but there is some underlying issue there that I don't understand. You know Babcock is the coach. You have to respect him for his decisions on who he plays. Sometimes it's just the verbal stuff that goes back and forth from what I understand. Cheli will never complain. He is the ultimate professional. He will do whatever the team needs." Huh.

Jeremy Roenick may have played his last game in the NHL.

Starting with San Jose's playoff opener on Thursday, the Sharks will be fighting to overcome years of playoff disappointments.

The Sharks finished the 2007-08 season with the second best record in the NHL, but they still failed to advance past the second round of the playoffs for the third straight season. General Manager Doug Wilson has since then added four players who have already previously won a Stanley Cup. The Sharks won the Presidents Trophy this season with 117 points. However, they'll need to preform in the playoffs to shake their reputation as a team who falls short when the pressure is on. "It's a terrible reputation to have, and I think it's one that Doug Wilson just hates to death," Roenick said. "I think it's something that Joe (Thornton) hates and Patty (Marleau) hates and some guys who have been here for a long period of time don't want anymore. You can tell by the way they play."

Jeremy Roenick will probably play in Wednesday's game against Chicago.

"J.R. will be a game-time decision, but he's looking like he's ready to go," coach Todd McLellan said. Roenick participated in Tuesday's practice and felt ready to return to the Sharks' lineup. He's been limited to just 33 games this season due to two shoulder injuries.

Jeremy Roenick will be out of the San Jose lineup with an undisclosed injury.

It is thought to be the shoulder according to the San Jose Mercury News, but not the shoulder he injured earlier in the year that kept him out of the lineup for 2 1/2 months. He will be healthy for the playoffs according to GM Doug Wilson.

Jeremy Roenick earned his 700th career assist on Saturday.

Roenick was appearing in his first game since sustaining a shoulder injury on Dec. 11. "It was a great feeling from the moment I stepped on the ice for my first shift," he said. "It was great to be back out there with the boys. Twenty-eight games is definitely a long time not to be in the lineup. I was going stir crazy."
