SPRINGFIELD, Mass.- The Springfield Thunderbirds are excited to announce they will be welcoming U.S. Women's Olympic Hockey gold medalist and Westfield native Kacey Bellamy to the Thunderbirds home game on Saturday, March 31 at the MassMutual Center against the Utica Comets.
Western Massachusetts' gold medalist will be on hand at the MassMutual Center for a meet-and-greet and autograph session with fans on the concourse, beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET. This event, which is free of charge with a Thunderbirds March 31 game ticket, will allow fans to get an up close look at the 2018 Olympic gold medal.
In addition, Bellamy will be involved as part of the Greater Springfield League Parade of Champions during the first intermission. The Thunderbirds are proud hosts of the Parade of Champions at the conclusion of the GSL hockey playoffs.
Each championship team and runner-up will be honored on the ice during the intermission, where they will get to take a team photo with the GSL Championship Trophy. Bellamy will also be involved in the photographs at center ice with the GSL medal-winning teams.
Bellamy, who played her college hockey at the University of New Hampshire, has been to the Olympic Games on three occasions representing the United States. After picking up silver medals in Vancouver in 2010 and in Sochi in 2014, Bellamy and the U.S. Women's Olympic Hockey team finally reached the pinnacle of the Olympic Games this past February in Pyeongchang, defeating Team Canada in a shootout to earn Team USA's first gold medal in women's hockey since 1998.
Bellamy has also been a member of the National Women's Hockey League's Boston Pride from the league's opening in 2015, and she previously skated for the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women's Hockey League from 2010-15.
