Jeremy Roenick

Jeremy Roenick is one of the most memorable Chicago Blackhawks and one of the most prolific scorers in franchise history. He definitely left his mark on the city of Chicago.

In eight seasons with the Blackhawks, Roenick piled up 596 points (267G, 329A) with a 117 ± rating in 524 games. That comes out to a very impressive 1.14 point-per-game clip.

In his first two seasons, Jeremy Roenick got off to a great start. However, when you compare his first two seasons to Alex DeBrincat’s first two seasons, DeBrincat actually pulled ahead of Roenick. That by itself is pretty impressive and means Alex is on the right track.

I was lucky enough to have been born in 1991, so I was just old enough to remember a little bit of Jeremy Roenick before he was traded to the then Phoenix Coyotes.

He was one of the players who got me into hockey in the first place, so I’d like to say, Thank You, and I believe he deserves to be in the Hockey Hall of Fame. The following highlight reel showcases just how special Jeremy Roenick was.
