COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets President Mike Priest announced today that Jody Shelley, one of the most popular players in the NHL franchise’s 13-year history, has rejoined the organization as a broadcast associate and team ambassador.
“Jody Shelley is one of the most popular players in our history and we are very pleased to have him back in the Blue Jackets family,” said Priest. “I have been very impressed by Jody’s commitment and desire to make an impact on our organization. It is obvious that he cares a great deal about this team, the community and our fans.”
Shelley will feature prominently in all aspects of the club’s broadcasting efforts, providing analysis during select Blue Jackets home radio broadcasts; serving as a regular contributor during home game telecasts on FOX Sports Ohio, including as a second analyst between the benches on occasion; and co-hosting a weekly radio show on the Blue Jackets Radio Network and flagship station Sports Radio 97.1 The Fan. In addition, he will be involved in Jackets TV coverage via the club’s website, BlueJackets.com; and actively engaged in various business and community initiatives for the organization.
“It’s always nice when a player who is a part of a team’s history wants to come back and be a part of its present and future,” said club President of Hockey Operations John Davidson. “Jody was highly thought of as a player because of his work ethic, toughness and leadership, both on and off the ice, and you can’t have enough of those types of people in your organization.”
“I’m very excited to be a Blue Jacket again and I’m looking forward to the opportunities ahead as I move into this next chapter of my life and career,” said Shelley. “Columbus is our home and to have the chance to be a part of this great organization again means a lot to me and my family. We’ve got an exciting team and great fans and I can’t wait to get started.”

Jody Shelley received a two-game suspension by the NHL this morning for his hit on Saturday in Boston.
If you missed the hit, watch it here.
TORONTO (December 13, 2010) – Philadelphia Flyers forward Jody Shelley has been suspended for two games and will forfeit $11,827.96 in salary for delivering a hit from behind to Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid in NHL game #425, on December 11, the National Hockey League announced today.
Shelley’s fine is based on his average annual salary and is calculated under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
The incident occurred at 5:08 of the second period. Shelley was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct.
Shelley will miss games Tuesday against Pittsburgh and Wednesday at Montreal. He is eligible to return Saturday when the Flyers host the Rangers.
from Douglas Flynn of NESN,
...first-year Flyer Jody Shelley doesn’t possess the reputation of a dirty player. A tough guy sure, his 1,420 penalty minutes in 569 career games in the NHL, most coming in five-minute chunks against willing opponents, attest to that.
But the last 15 PIMs were a little different. They came 5:08 into the second period Saturday night when Shelley appeared to shove Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid from behind as they raced to chase down a puck behind the Boston net. McQuaid crashed face-first into the boards and remained down for several minutes before being helped to the locker room.

from the San Jose Sharks,
San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed Group III unrestricted free agent left wing Jody Shelley to a two-year contract. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“From the first day that Jody arrived here, he brought toughness and character,” said Wilson. “He is one of the most respected players in our room because of his team-first attitude and his willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done.”
from Media News at Inside Bay Area,
Jody Shelley often has a hard time explaining what exactly he does for a hockey team. Talking to kids especially can leave him tongue-tied.
“When I visit elementary schools, that’s always the first question — ‘Why do you fight?’” Shelley said. “I’m always like, ‘Well, uh, you shouldn’t fight. Fighting is bad. And don’t you do it. But I fight to help my teammates.’”
“You know, it’s not an easy question to answer.”
from Working the Corners at the Mercury News,
...while Ron Wilson wanted to get a look at Shelley in practice before saying when he thought he’d be playing, the coach did sound as if he likes the idea of the added toughness in the lineup.
“When teams try to push us around and rough us up, we’ve got some artillery — a nuclear weapon,” Wilson said. “The guy will step out there and we’ve heard nothing but good about Jody being a team player. We’ve seen the damage he can do in the past.”

The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired a sixth round pick in the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for left wing Jody Shelley, club General Manager Scott Howson announced tonight.
added 10:07pm, via the San Jose Sharks,
“Jody Shelley is an aggressive, physical player who adds a distinct element of toughness to our team,” said (Doug) Wilson. “With the loss of players like Ryane Clowe and Brad Norton due to injury, this is something we have been trying to address and we like the capabilities that Jody brings to our mix of players. He has tremendous character, has always been a team player and has the ability to make the opposition uncomfortable on the ice.”
from the Columbus Dispatch,
She has never been in a physical confrontation, she says, unless you count the time irony smacked her between the eyes. That was the day, five years ago, when she met her future husband, Blue Jackets enforcer Jody Shelley.
“My friends from back home couldn’t believe we were dating,” Mandy said. “They reminded me I was the student who always ran to the nearest teacher when I saw a fight.”
from the Columbus Dispatch,
“Driving in some days, you feel like you’re going to go out on the ice and run through the boards,” Shelley said Sunday night as he watched the Jackets play the St. Louis Blues. He was sitting alone in a darkened booth on press row, just below the rafters.
Shelley is—or was—primarily an enforcer. But there are fewer fights in the NHL. There is also a greater importance on special teams, so agitation is a more delicate art. In the Jackets’ case, they have this kid Jared Boll who knows how to irritate, and skate, and hit.
