Former Chicago Blackhawk Jeremy Roenick recently was recognized with a "One More Shift" appearance on United Center ice, but his freshest honor came when he appeared Wednesday, Feb. 8, as a celebrity bartender and guest at Aurelio's Pizza.

Roenick visited Aurelio's locations in Naperville and Geneva to meet with fans, sign autographs, gush about pizza and serve drinks for fans who bought tickets to special lunch events.

 

The former Blackhawk, who skated with the team for eight years of a 20-year hockey career, ranks seventh in team history with 267 goals, ninth in team history with 596 points and 13th in team history with 329 assists.

Proceeds from Roenick's stop in Naperville benefited Naperville Community Television.
