Blue chip hockey player heading to RMC…

G-Hawks defenceman Nick Boddy commits to Paladins

By Erin Stewart

Trenton Golden Hawks defenceman Nick Boddy has committed to the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) in Kingston for the next stage in his hockey career and education.

The 20-year-old said he’s happy with his decision to play for RMC in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) and to have a future serving in the Canadian military.

“It’s super exciting, it’s been a goal of mine since the beginning of this season,” said Boddy. “It’s a long process, the application process is pretty long and gruelling and there’s a lot of components to it but it’s finally done and I’m pretty relieved and excited.”

Boddy, who is playing his third season with the Hawks, said serving in the Canadian military is something he has always thought about.

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who have served and they love it, they said it’s great, so I’m looking forward to that,” he said.

Trenton Golden Hawks coach Jerome Dupont said Boddy is a fantastic addition to any team.

“First and foremost he’s a pristine individual,” said Dupont. “They’re getting a quality person but over and above that he’s a real good defenceman so I think he’s value added to their hockey team as well but I’m so excited for him and I think it’s a great move.”
