Perhaps the Blom name sounds familiar to you…and you would be correct. Helena is now home to both Blom brothers. Younger brother Levi Blom has been with the Bighorns since the beginning of the season where his leadership both on and off the ice lead head coach Scott Cunningham to name him as an alternative captain. The Bighorns newest Blom, Cody, joined the Bighorns in Gillette this past weekend where he helped lead the team to two wins over the Wild. In their game on Friday, Cody earned his first goal as a Bighorn on a power play opportunity. The next evening, he recorded an assist while the team was on the penalty kill. Cody played the 2010-2011 season as well as the first half of this season with the Bozeman Icedogs where he as the team’s point leader. In the 27 games he played as an Icedog this season, he had 7 goals and 20 assists. During the 2010-2011 season, Cody also led the team in points with 19 goals and 23 assists. That season, he was also named to the NORPAC 2nd All-Star team.
The Tracy name may be familiar to fans as well. Trevor played with the Bighorns last season and was part of the National Championship winning team. Tracy began his Juniors career with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL during the 2009-2010 season. From there he was traded to the Springfield Jr. Blues of the NAHL and ended the season with the Fresno Monsters of the WSHL. Tracy spent the 2010-2011 season with the Helena Bighorns where he was the sixth highest point scorer on the team. He also spent the most time in the penalty box. Tracy spent some time in the AJHL this season before returning to the Bighorns. Over the course of this past weekend, he earned 3 points on 2 goals and 1 assist. He also spent 19 minutes in the penalty box on a multitude of penalties. While his offensive prowess is easy to see, it will be necessary for him to limit his time in the penalty box in order to really be an asset to the team.
