Bodie named Falcons' Man of the Year
Bodie started the season assisting with the Springfield Falcons “Welcome Caravan,” a partnership with Friendly’s Ice Cream welcoming the new players from the Edmonton Oilers organization to the Pioneer Valley and Northern Connecticut. Bodie assisted with visits to local Friendly’s Restaurants during training camp promoting the Falcons season and spending time with fans attending the events.
Bodie was also a regular visitor to the Springfield Sliders Sled Hockey Team practices in Westfield, MA. During Bodie’s visits to the sled hockey practices, he would work with youngsters on the ice during each practice and spend time with families off the ice as well.
Bodie also spent time with military members after the Falcons game on February 8, 2008 as part of their Military Appreciation Night. Bodie signed autographs and took pictures with those individuals in attendance.
In recognition of his efforts, Bodie will be presented with an etched crystal trophy during an on-ice presentation prior to an upcoming Falcons home game.
