Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Roger Jenkins
Roger Jenkins played right wing and defence for six different NHL teams in the 1930s. He was also an accomplished player in senior hockey and the minor pro leagues. He was best known for his hard-hitting work on the blueline and his ability to handle the puck.

Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, "Broadway" Jenkins played junior with the Port Arthur team that lost the 1927 Memorial Cup final to the Owen Sound Greys. He later closed out his amateur career with the junior Edmonton Imperials in 1929-30. The next year he was signed as a free agent by the Chicago Black Hawks and recorded a single assist in ten games. Partway through the year he was loaned to the Toronto Maple Leafs and suited up for 21 games.

After spending a year with the Bronx Tigers of the CanAm League in 1931-32, Jenkins became an NHL regular for the rest of the decade. He proved to be a solid player who could check and contribute offensively. Jenkins was a consistent performer on the Chicago Black Hawks' first Stanley Cup team in 1934 and was on hand to help the Montreal Maroons win it all the next year. In 1938 he led all post-season players with six assists while helping Chicago win its second Stanley Cup. Following his NHL career, Jenkins played four years in the AHL and spent five years in the PCHL, one of them as a coach.
