Former Blackhawk Jeremy Roenick shares life story in new book

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Jeremy Roenick, one of the premier hockey players of his generation and one of the greatest American stars the NHL has ever known, shares his life story in a frank and unflinching autobiography: "J.R.: My Life as the Most Outspoken, Fearless, and Hard-Hitting Man in Hockey."

After making his debut as an 18-year-old with the Chicago Blackhawks, Roenick thrilled fans with his flashy style, take-no-prisoners approach, and jaw-dropping skills.

A native of Boston, Roenick went on to play for four more franchises, including the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings, during his incredible 18-season career. By the time he was through, Roenick had racked up 513 goals—the second most of any American-born player—and 703 assists.

Now a tells-it-like-it-is commentator for NBC and the NHL, Roenick takes readers on a behind-the-scenes, warts-and-all tour through his illustrious career, both on and off the ice.

J.R. talked with FOX 32's Lou Canellis in studio on December 11, 2012.
