Jeremy Roenick is an American center on the San Jose Sharks.
Roenick was originally drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks with the 6th pick of the 1988 draft. Roenick proved to be one of the top young talents in the NHL right away, scoring 66 points his rookie year. Over the next five seasons, Roenick helped lead the Blackhawks to a number of division titles and deep playoff runs. In ’92-93 and ’93-94, Roenick had the best seasons of his career, recording 107 points in both years, with 50 goals in ’92-93. In 1996, he was traded to Phoenix, where he continued his strong play as a veteran leader on a young team. After leading the Coyotes in points a number of times, Roenick was signed by Philadelphia in 2001, where he continued to lead on his new team. With the Flyers, Roenick played in his 1000th NHL game and recorded his 1000th point. Roenick was traded to Los Angeles in 2005, after the Flyers signed Peter Forsberg. After poor seasons in Los Angeles and Phoenix, Roenick nearly retired, but ended up signing with San Jose in 2007. With the Sharks, Roenick scored his 500th career goal, and is now the 2nd highest goal scoring American in NHL history. He also recorded his 700th assist in 2009. Roenick has been an NHL All Star 9 times, and shares the NHL record for shooting accuracy after going 4 for 4 in the 2004 Skills competition.
Roenick has played for Team USA at a number of tournaments, winning two silver medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics and the ’91 Canada Cup.
