T1_roenickFamily comes first to Phoenix Coyotes player Jeremy Roenick who missed a game on Saturday, December 23 due to an undisclosed illness facing his teenage daughter, Brandi.  It is not known how long the NHL center will be away from the game.
"The most important thing is the health of his child. That’s more important than what we’ve got going on right now," said Wayne Gretzky, coach of the Coyotes.
Jeremy and his wife, Tracy, also have a son, Brett.

I am not sure if that is a mistake or maybe the wrong player, but that jersey is the Los Angeles Kings not the Coyotes.
