Here’s another chunk/patch upgrade for Cody Almond @cody_almond89 -
1. Cody is a highly skilled, versatile, and physical Canadian forward who was born in Calgary and is of Indonesian descent.
2. Cody was a highly touted youth hockey player in Calgary and played 4 @westernhockeyleague seasons with the @kelownarocketswhl, where he racked up 168 points in 230 games and won a league championship as an assistant captain in 2008-2009. One of Cody’s teammates during his tenure with the Rockets was @ctray10, who was previously featured on this account.
3. Cody was selected 140th overall by the @minnesotawild in the 2007 @nhl Entry Draft. After juniors, he split 3 years in pro between the Wild and their minor league affiliate at the time, the @houstonaeros. Over 25 career NHL games, he has scored 2 goals. I’m pretty sure he is also the first player of Indonesian heritage to play in The Show.
4. Cody then took his game to Switzerland beginning in 2012, where he has played for @geneveservettehc__ig and @lausannehc_officiel. He also played for Switzerland at the 2018 @olympics (recording 2 points and 25 PIMs in 4 games).
5. Cody has won two Spengler Cups and was the National League’s most penalized player in 2017-2018. He currently resides in Switzerland with his young family and continues to play a prominent role with Lausanne.
