The last time Jeremy Roenick suited up and skated out onto the Blackhawks ice, it was 1996.
Last night, he got to do it one more time.
According to Comcast Sports Net, the team periodically has former players suit up and skate out on the ice, for the beginning line and National Anthem.
They call it their “One More Shift” promotion.
Denis Savard has done it and so had Steve Lamar too!
But when Rosenick skated out and kissed the Blackhawks logo at center ice
I’m man enough to admit that I got a little teary eyed watching that!
