Kody Blois is heading to Ottawa. The 28-year-old was elected as a Member of Parliament for the Liberal Party of Canada in Monday night’s federal election in the riding of Kings-Hants. The former Halifax Lions and Amherst Ramblers goaltender garnered 20,807 votes, 43.3% of the ballots cast in the preliminary results from Elections Canada.
Blois spent four seasons in the Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL). He was drafted in the 4th round, 41st overall in the 2008 MJAHL Entry Draft by the Truro Bearcats. On December 30th, 2008, he was traded to the Halifax Lions, now the Valley Wildcats franchise, for the rights to Jonathan McArthur. Blois would play 15 games in 2008-09 where he registered a 4-10-0 record with a 4.42 GAA and a .903 save percentage.
In his first full season in the MHL, where he was considered a rookie, Blois played in 46 of 50 games. He posted a 20-25-1 record with a 3.42 GAA and a .912 save percentage. Halifax would lose in six games to Pictou County in the Maurice Bent Division semifinal. Blois went 2-4-0 with a 3.64 GAA and .919 save percentage.
In October of the 2010-11 season, the newly named Metro Marauders dealt Blois to Amherst for Greg Janz, a 5th round draft pick in the 2011 Entry Draft and future considerations. Once with the Ramblers, Blois played 30 games with a 3.63 GAA and .901 save percentage. In his final season in the MHL in 2011-12, Blois played 15 games, going 4-6-4 with a 2.86 GAA and .924 save percentage. He made four starts in the playoffs with a 2.06 GAA and .931 save percentage, but the Ramblers fell to Yarmouth in the Maurice Bent Division Final.
