Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200
Shoots: Left
Born: Sep 4, 1952
Birthplace: Galt, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Buffalo with Danny Gare and Derek Smith for Mike Foligno, Dale McCourt and Brent Peterson on December 2, 1981.
Drafted: BUF / 1972 NHL Amateur Draft
Round: 1st (5th overall)
A product of three OHA teams - the London Knights, Hamilton Red Wings, and Niagara Falls Flyers - Jim Schoenfeld was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres fifth overall in the 1972 amateur draft and made the jump to the NHL team the very next season.

He was known for his fisticuffs more than his scoring prowess, amassing 532 penalty minutes in his first four seasons in with the Sabres. He had a career high in points with 36 in the 1979-80 season, where four of his nine goals were scored on the power play. He also played in the All-Star Game this year, as well as in 1977.

After nine seasons with the Sabres, Schoenfeld was dealt to the Detroit Red Wings during the 1981-82 season. From there he signed as a free agent in 1983 with the Boston Bruins, where he played for only a year. He then rejoined the Sabres to close out his playing days. He played only one more season before moving behind the bench becoming the Sabres head coach in 1985.

Schoenfeld was one of many players to make the transition to coaching in the NHL, but with Scotty Bowman as the general manager in Buffalo the position wasn't permanent. After 40 games, Bowman replaced Schoenfeld behind the bench. He moved on to New Jersey where he was bench boss from 1987-88 to 1989-90.

From New Jersey, Schoenfeld joined the Washington Capitals for the 1993-94 season and led the team to the conference semi-finals. He had several successful years with the Caps before joining the Phoenix Coyotes for the 1997-98 season where he stayed for the next two seasons. During his time in Phoenix, Schoenfeld was named an assistant coach to the North American All-Star team in 1999.

After the Coyotes, Schoenfeld moved up to the broadcast booth as an analyst for ABC Sports for the 2000-01 season.
