Roenick gets his due

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Blackhawks didn't waste any time scheduling a Heritage Night for Jeremy Roenick. It'll be on Nov. 15 before the Hawks face Roenick's last team, the San Jose Sharks. Roenick, who restired during the offseason after a brilliant 20-season career, never lost his affection for the Hawks, who drafted him as an 18-year old. He was one of the Hawks' most popular players, and the trade of him to Phoenix wasn't received well by the fans. Last season the Hawks held Heritage Nights for Tony Amonte, Glenn Hall, Steve Larmer, Bob Probert and the MPG line of Pit Martin Jim Pappin and Dennis Hull. All were long-since retired. Roenick could well be the most popular Heritage Night honoree yet.
