CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) --  Blackhawks legend Jeremy Roenick is getting a lot of attention on social media for lending a helping hand.

Former Blackhawks star Roenick met Shawn, 17, on Michigan Avenue after he saw the teen had no shoes or jacket. With a quick trip to Macy's  Roenick helped deck the kid out with some new threads.

As Roenick says: If you see someone who needs help, you can make a difference. #Payitforward and be the change.
