Jeremy Roenick goes undercover at NHL All-Star Game

Jeremy Roenick is one of the most recognizable faces in the hockey world, but NBC wanted to send JR undercover at the NHL All-Star Game for some fun.

Roenick slapped on a big beard, some fake hair, a baseball cap and a Vancouver Canucks jersey and walked around, interacting with fans during the All-Star festivites.

Roenick pretended he was from Mississippi and knew nothing about hockey as he fired some slapshots and ultimately got kicked out of a shooting drill.

The best part for Chicagoans will be when JR calls Jonathan Toews "toes," which is definitely something every Blackhawks fan has heard from an uneducated individual at some point in their fandom.

Blackhawks legend Jeremy Roenick was honored Sunday at the United Center for One More Shift. 

The former center laced up his skates, put on his No. 27 sweater and glided around the ice as fans recognized him with a rousing ovation. To the patrons' delight, Roenick even planted a kiss right on the Hawks' center ice logo. 

Roenick played eight seasons for the Hawks, ranking seventh in team history with 267 goals and ninth in points with 596. 

He also ranked 13th in assists, that is, until the game actually started. Jonathan Toews' four-point night not only pushed the Hawks past the Canucks, but also moved The Captain ahead of Roenick in the record books. 

Check out Roenick's return to the ice in the video above.

Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?

Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.

"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."

But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.

"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."

Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
