Jeremy was introduced to hockey when he was four years old; one of his childhood friends began playing hockey, and his parents enrolled him as well. However, Jeremy’s father had to move a lot due to his work, and took his family along too. Jeremy moved across the north-eastern USA during his childhood and early teens, living in Ridgefield Connecticut, Farifax Virginia, and Newark New Jersey. He then started playing for the New Jersey Rockets, and with them won the state championship, recording 300 points in 75 games. His family then settled in Massachusetts, and he enrolled at Thayer Academy, with whom he won the League Championship twice. After his education ended, he was selected as the 8th overall pick in the 1988 NHL Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Before he joined the Blackhawks senior team, Jeremy played for the Hull Olympiques, owned by Wayne Gretzky, and in 28 games he had 70 points. He then joined USA International squad at the 1988 WJC, finishing sixth, before being called-up by the Blackhawks, and making his debut on 6th October 1988 against the New York Rangers. That season, Jeremy played in 20 games, and had nine goals and assists; his team reached the playoffs, and it was in those games that Jeremy showed what he could do in the future, that the head coach could count on him.

The second season was quite successful for Jeremy; he played in 78 games, and had 26 goals and 40 assists. Again in the play-offs, the Blackhawks reached the Campbell Conference Finals, but lost to the Edmonton Oilers. Nevertheless, Jeremy showed once again that he was a future star. He proved that in the next season immediately, scoring 41 goals with 53 assists. He stayed in Chicago until 1996, with his best season being 1992-1993, in which he had 50 goals and 57 assists to his name.

He was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Craig Mills, Alexei Zhamnov and a first-round draft pick. He stayed in Phoenix until 2001, becoming one of the best scorers of the team. His next stop was Philadelphia and its franchise the Flyers. While there, his numbers weren’t that impressive, however, he still managed to be one of the better players in the three seasons he spent in Philadelphia.

He was then traded to the Los Angeles Kings, but his stint there was short; he wore Kings’ uniform in 58 games only, and scored nine goals with 13 assists. After the season ended he became a free agent, and was thinking of retiring or playing in a Canadian team, but instead he returned to the Phoenix Coyotes, signing a contract worth $1.2 million over one year, which further increased his net worth. He played in 70 games, and scored 11 goals and had 17 assists.

Following the end of the season, he joined the San Jose Sharks on a $500,000 one year contract, and played in 69 games, improving his numbers with 14 goals scored and 19 assists. The Sharks decided to extend Jeremy’s stay in San Jose, and with another one year contract tied him for the 2008-2009 season. Unfortunately, Jeremy’s numbers fell down drastically, and he had only four goals and nine assists, his lowest since entering NHL.

He finished his career with 513 goals and 703 assists. Jeremy played nine times in the All-Star game, consecutively from 1991 until 1994, then 1999-2000, and 2002-2004.

Jeremy has also represented USA several times, and won two silver medals; firstly at the Canada Cup in 1991, and the second at the Winter Olympics in 2002.

Regarding his personal life, Jeremy has been married to Tracy since 1992; the couple has two children.
