Todd Nelson Named 10th Griffins Head Coach
Griffin Todd Nelson The Grand Rapids Griffins announced today that Todd Nelson would become the 10th coach in franchise history, taking over the reins from Jeff Blashill who was recently promoted to the parent Detroit Red Wings. Nelson has the distinction of being the first player signed by Grand Rapids prior to the team's 1996 debut season. The Prince Albert, Saskatchewan native had most recently been with the Edmonton Oilers as a mid-season replacement for Dallas Eakins. He was asked to stay on with the club as an assistant after the hiring of former wings assistant Todd McLellan as the new head coach earlier this summer, but he chose to return to his roots. Upon being introduced his first remark was to say it was "good to be back home".
