#97 Jeremy Roenick puts fans in the seats, and goalies on the street



The San Jose Sharks signed flamboyant center Jermey Roenick to a 1-year contract on Tuesday morning. Following offseason extensions given to Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Milan Michalek and Craig Rivet, Roenick will be a veteran cog added to the mix on the ice, and he will supply an avalanche of quotable material off of it. The 9-time NHL allstar scored 11 goals and 17 assists in 70 games played for the Phoenix Coyotes last season.

"That was a very true feeling in my body and soul about retiring and I kind of lost a little luster for the game for the last couple years. Then I got a phone call from Doug Wilson. Immediately, from a phone call from a guy that I respect and probably one of the most respected guys that I've ever played with, my electricity and energy came back. When you love to play the game and a team (of this nature) comes along, it is very easy to get excited and motivated" Roenick told SJsharks.com.
