| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jeremy Roenick, who started his solid NHL career with the Blackhawks, will announce his retirement on Thursday. The San Jose Sharks, Roenick's team the past two seasons, have called a press conference with Roenick the focal point.
Roenick, 39, scored 513 goals -- the third American to crack 500 in the NHL -- and added 703 assists in 1,363 games. He also had 53 goals and 69 assists in 169 playoff games. After becoming an immediate hit with the Hawks Roenick went on to play for Phoenix, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Jose.
The Wolves are also planning a major press conference on Thursday. The American Hockey League club will name a successor to general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff, who was named assistant GM of the Hawks.
