I'm Retiring - By Text Message???

Evidently that is the way Jeremy Roenick decided to let the world know he is out of the game. This 9 time All Star, #3 American top scorer, player on the Silver Medal winning 2002 Olympic team uses his cell phone to send a text message to a Philly Inquirer reporter announcing his withdrawl from NHL Hockey - I am sure this comes as a surprise to the Phoenix Coyotes!

Jeremy Roenick compiled impressive regular season stats, netting career 495 goals (behind Mike Modano - 507 and Joey Mullen - 502), 675 assists and totaled 1,413 minutes in penalties. In 136 playoff games, he scored 51 goals and added 65 assists.

Roenick played for the Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings and Coyotes. He was drafted by the Blackhawks eighth overall in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft and helped lead them to the Stanley Cup Final in 1992.
