LAS VEGAS -- Making the rounds at the Presenters Welcome Reception for the 2009 NHL Awards, San Jose Sharks forward Jeremy Roenick promised a decision about his playing future "in the next couple of weeks."

"I don't have a total decision but I am leaning a certain way," said Roenick, 39, who certainly looks fit enough to play another season, which would be his 19th. "It's very hard and going to be an interesting next two weeks."

Roenick will be a presenter at Thursday's 2009 NHL Awards (Versus, 7 p.m. ET and CBC, 8:30 p.m. ET) to present the ScotiaBank Fan Fav Award, a new award that is the first fan-voted award. The winner will be the fans' choice as the best overall regular season performer.
