Rod the bod was noted for having a great work ethic. He was fiercely competitive very consistent gladiator who gave it his all every night on the ice.Was a strong player down low in both ends of the ice and was equally adapt while scoring and defending the play.He had good hand eye coordination which makes him a constant threat to tip in,rebound or just block the goal keep from doing his job.
