from Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province,
Roenick was in Burnaby along with five other NHL players to go through some moves for Electronic Arts, in part to mark its launch of the 2009 version of the popular NHL video game franchise. Although he’s 38 and has logged lots of miles over 19 NHL seasons, Roenick was the most entertaining character on and off the ice.
“I get more people asking about my [NHL 94 for Sega],” laughed Roenick of his legendary status in that version of the game. “I’m holding onto that.”
In fact, Roenick makes most top-five lists for top athlete in video-game history, but he said his 11-year-old son Brett will be more pumped about his being in the 2009 game.
“I’m not a big gamer, but my son is a huge gamer,” said Roenick. “My son thinks this is the coolest thing about me being a professional athlete.”
