From Jim Morris at the CP,
Roenick is on course to become the 40th NHL player, and just the third born in the U.S., to score 500 goals.
“That would be great,” said Roenick, who signed as a free agent with the Sharks this summer after a couple of frustrating seasons in Phoenix and Los Angeles. “That would be a true treat but that’s not my goal right now. That will be something I can look back at when I’m done and really feel good about myself. No. 1 would be the Stanley Cup.”
Roenick, a 37-year-old native of Boston, headed into the game against Vancouver with 497 career goals. The two goals he scored this year both came in a 3-1 win over the Canucks on Oct. 5.
*I’m guessing he gets his 500th against Vancouver—it seems like everyone scores their milestone goals against the Canucks.
So it’s either a hat trick tonight, or Sharks fans better not expect him to score his 500th till December 13th…
