2007-08: This was Bellamy’s senior year with the Maine Black Bears where he was named co-captain of the team. Following the conclusion of his collegiate career, he made his professional debut with the Philadelphia Phantoms (AHL) on Apr. 2 vs. Norfolk.
Bellamy is a hard-nosed player who brings intensity to every shift. He has good speed and can deliver momentum-changing body checks that fire up the crowd. The senior forward plays with discipline and tends to find himself in the right position to generate scoring opportunities. Strong on his feet, Bellamy is very good at doing all the little things such as winning one-on-one battles in the corner and blocking shots.
Bellamy fits the mold of the Flyers organization with his rugged play and toughness. Although a fierce competitor, he still needs to work on honing his stickhandling skills and improving the velocity and accuracy of his shot.
