SAINTS AND SINNERS TO HONOR JODY GAGE
11/03/2012 - 7:09pm

(November 4, 2012)… The only man enshrined in the Rochester Americans and Knighthawks Hall of Fame will be the honored guest at the “Saints and Sinners 55th Annual Fall Guy Charity Roast.” Jody Gage, known as Mr. Amerk during his pro hockey career, will be roasted on Tuesday, November 27th at 5:30 p.m. at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

News 10 NBC Anchor Rich Funke will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the event, while the “Roasters” will include Amerks Hall of Fame broadcaster Don Stevens, Amerks Hall of Fame defenseman Jim Hofford, sports agent Steve Bartlett, radio personality Jeremy Newman of 92.5 WBEE, and Rochester Knighthawks President Lewis Staats.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Amerks Alumni Association. For more information on the Saints and Sinners 55th Annual Fall Guy Charity Roast honoring Jody Gage, or to purchase tickets to the event, visit www.sandscharities.org.

In 10 seasons, Gage became the Amerks all-time leader in games played. He was awarded the Les Cunningham Award in 1987-88 after becoming the second person to score 60 goals in one season. The man dubbed “Mr. Amerk” retired during the 1995-96 season, and immediately accepted a position as Assistant General Manager and helped the Amerks capture the 1995-96 Calder Cup Championship. Gage was named General Manager of the Americans before the 1996-97 season.

Also serving as the general manager of the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse and the National League’s Rochester Knighthawks, he saw nine teams reach the finals (three hockey, six lacrosse), during his 13 seasons as general manager.

In 2006 he received one of the highest honors of his career, as he was inducted into the inaugural class of the AHL Hall of Fame. In 2010 he was enshrined into the Knighthawks Hall of Fame. He thus became the only person in both the Amerks and Knighthawks Hall of Fames. Gage currently serves as the Director of Strategic Planning for the Amerks front office and Vice President of Player Personnel for the Knighthawks.

The Saints and Sinners, Inc. is a local Rochester organization whose goal is to provide funding to charities in the Rochester area. Since its inception, the organization has given more than $1,000,000 to local charitable organizations.
