Bodie, 24, registered eight goals and 31 assists for 39 points in 40 games helping lead Union to the 2014 NCAA Championship. Bodie established career-highs in assists, points, and penalty minutes (57), while tying his career-high in goals.

Bodie, who was named captain of The Dutchmen prior to the start of his junior year in 2012-13, tallied the most points of any defenseman in the nation, while ranking first on the team in assists, third in points. He also finished second among defensemen on the team in goals, and led the team in penalty minutes. The senior posted a career-high, seven-game assist/point streak from Oct. 12 vs. Bowling Green to Nov. 8 vs. Colgate (nine assists over the span).

The 6-0, 175-pounder registered 28 goals and 96 assists for 124 points in 154 contests during his college career. Bodie made his NCAA Hockey debut on Oct. 8, 2010 vs. Sacred Heart, and tallied his first collegiate point with an assist on Oct. 9, 2010 vs. Sacred Heart. Bodie set the Union record for most points by a freshman defenseman at Union with 32 during the 2010-11 season. The East St. Paul, Manitoba native also earned ACHA Second Team All-American honors in 2011-12, becoming the second defenseman in school history to be named an All-American.

Bodie tallied his 100th career collegiate point with a two-point effort (one goal, one assist) on Dec. 6, 2013 vs. Princeton. His 96 career assists are the most in Union’s history since the school began playing in Division I in 1991-92.
