For those that even care, yes, Kevin Rooney IS related to Steve Rooney. (Steve is his uncle.) Steve even took in
one of Kevin's games when the Devils played in Boston.
Kevin's game is all about putting in the work. He was never known as a scorer while at Providence, but he did
serve as the Friars' co-captain his senior year, and also won the team's unsung hero award.
He made a good enough impression with the A-Devs that Ray Shero turned his minor league contract into a
two-way deal, opening the door to making his NHL debut against Washington on March 2. Of the four games he
played, while only playing fourth line minutes in each one, that first game was his best one, according to John Hynes.
Hynes feels that he just needs to work on his strength and speed. He does commend him for his hockey sense,
(with tongue in cheek) ... Smart enough to not be a fighter like his uncle... or the OTHER Kevin Rooney. (Former
pro boxer and Mike Tyson's former manager.)
