New LA Galaxy goalkeeper coach Matt Reis' father-in-law John Odom was honored on Thursday as the Los Angeles Kings' "Hero of the Game" prior to their match against the Boston Bruins. 

Odom was recognized for his recovery from serious injuries sustained in the Boston Marathon bombing last year, Reis being one of the first responders who helped take his father-in-law to safety. In an interview with LAGalaxy.com in December, Reis admitted that being close to Odom and the rest of his extended family was one of the principal reasons that he took the goalkeeper coach job with the Galaxy.
