San Jose Sharks forward Jeremy Roenick will announce his retirement Thursday, ending his career which spanned 20 seasons.

Roenick is one of the best American-born players in NHL history.  However, his colorful career ended on a sour note last Spring when the top-seeded Sharks were eliminated in the first-round of the playoffs by the upstart Ducks.

He spent his final two seasons with the Sharks, but also was a star player for the Blackhawks, Flyers, Kings and Coyotes

What's next for Roenick?  He told NBC Bay Area that 'Dancing with the Stars' has been in contact with him, as well as other TV opportunities.

Roenick is the third-leading American-born scorer in hockey history with 1,216 points.
