AHL Enforcer Joel Rechlicz: All Guts, All Gratitude

The role of an enforcer is pretty simple in hockey, fight or you’re out of a job. It’s a role AHL enforcer and former Hershey Bears forward, Joel Rechlicz is accustomed to. He’s not there to provide any defensive reliability or an occasional goal as part of the fourth line, Rechlicz is there to fight, just fight.

With the Hershey Bears last season, he played in 44 regular season games and totaled one goal and one assist. His shifts were extremely limited, sometimes getting at most, five shifts per game. His impact on and off the ice didn’t go unnoticed however, as Rechlicz received high praise from his teammates and the endearing fans from Chocolate town.
