Andrew Bodnarchuk is a 29 year old defenceman in the Dallas Stars organization. The former Halifax Mooseheads captain is entering the 2nd year of a 2 year 2 way contract with the Stars and spent last season in the AHL with the Texas Stars. He has played in the Bruins, Kings and Bluejackets systems and is hoping this is the year he finally is able to make the step up to the NHL as a permanent reliable defenceman. Bodnarchuk lives in Austin, Texas during the hockey season with his wife and young daughter but returns to Nova Scotia in the summer. John Moore caught up with affable Hammonds Plains native at the annual Jordan Boyd Celebrity Challenge tournament at the BMO Centre in Bedford in July.
