Kacey Bellamy and The Springfield Thunderbirds are two of western Massachusetts biggest names in hockey.
Hockey fans were able to witness both on the ice Saturday night as the gold medalist held a meet and great session with fans before the thunderbirds game.
Kacey told 22News she was excited to be back at one of the places where her love for hockey first started.
“I went and saw the Springfield Falcons many times, I actually played one of my first games here at this rink, my first interview with 22News was on the bench,” said Bellamy. “This is where my heart is, western Massachusetts, growing up with the falcons and now with the Thunderbirds, going to be a great night and hopefully they come through with the win.”
Bellamy signed autographs and took pictures with fans of all ages.
And as for the game, 6-5 Comets.
