Jeremy Roenick won’t return to NBC Sports after suspension

Roenick joined NBC Sports in 2010 after a 20-year career in the National Hockey League that included nine All-Star appearances, 513 goals and 703 assists.

19 episode of Spittin' Chiclets, Roenick discussed the close friendship he and his wife have with his NBC Sports colleague Kathryn Tappen. The following year, he joined NBC Sports as a studio analyst where he covered hockey.

He captioned the video: "What a joke!"

"I'm very disappointed and angry today (that) I will not be returning to NBC", Roenick said in a video message posted to Twitter.

Roenick also thanks the fans who've stood by him, saying their support has been "overwhelming".

He added: 'Even though I'm leaving NBC, I will not be gone for long.

Former NHL player Jeremy Roenick won't be returning to NBC Sports, a network spokesperson confirmed Wednesday, a little more than a month after he was suspended without pay for making inappropriate comments about his coworkers while on a podcast.

Roenick was suspended December 23, four days after guesting on Barstool's "Spittin' Chiclets" hockey podcast and telling a story about being on vacation in Portugal with his wife and NBC Sports host Kathryn Tappen.


On the podcast, Roenick told listeners about a trip he took to Portugal last summer with his wife, Tracy, and co-worker Kathryn Tappen.

On the podcast, Roenick pointed out how- while on holiday with his spouse and Tappen- he would point out a desire to sleep with both women, even calling them "blonde bombshells" on the air.

He then joked that "I play it off like we're going to bed together every night, the three of us". He also added,"When it actually came into fruition, that could truly be great, but it is never going to occur".

Later in the interview, Roenick called Sharp "so beautiful" and said: "I'd have to think about it if he asked me".

NBC said it would have no further comment.

Roenick was a five-time All-Star with 267 career goals.

Roenick, the third American-born player to score 500 goals in the National Hockey League, played for the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings.
