We are honored to welcome former Chicago Blackhawks Player, Jeremy Roenick, to the 18th Annual Goombay Bash Presented by Axion Risk Management Strategies.
Roenick began his NHL career in 1988 with the Chicago Blackhawks. Throughout his career he played for the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, and San Jose Sharks. Roenick finished his career having scored 513 goals and 703 assists in 1,363 games for a total of 1,216 points.
Roenick is not only known for his stellar work on the ice, but off the ice as well. He founded the Jeremy Roenick Hockey School, which he thought would be a perfect way to share his love for the game with his fans. Through this school, he is able to impart his knowledge on kids and adults looking to master their hockey skills.
Thank you, Jeremy for your dedication to support The H Foundation mission to fund basic science cancer research and find a cure for cancer.
