About the Book

The controversial New York Times bestseller about hockey's most outspoken player

Shoot First, Pass Later is an honest, shoot-from-the-hip follow-up to Jeremy Roenick’s first bestselling book, J.R.: The Fast Crazy Life of Hockey's Most Outspoken and Most Colourful Personality. This entirely new book highlights Roenick’s skill as a hockey storyteller. A fan favourite with a rabid following, Roenick tells different stories about his days with the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. He offers his opinions about teammates, opponents and hockey events from his storied career, and also opens up about his thoughts on the future of the NHL. Roenick sees the game quite differently than his contemporaries, which is all made clear in his biting and often hilarious stories.

As a famous and outspoken player, former CBC personality and current national hockey analyst for NBC, Roenick boasts strong appeal wherever the game is played. Whether fans love him or loathe him, they all want to know what Roenick is going to say next. And those who follow him on Twitter or have read his bestselling book J.R. know that Roenick pulls no punches.

With a foreword by Chris Chelios.
