Organizational Comments: Wings GM Ken Holland:
What GRC says: 2010-11: Recovered from a disastrous first half to post some solid numbers and show off a decent scoring touch. His 15 goals over the last half tied for the team lead and his 134 shots led the team outright. He is under contract for another season, but it remains to be seen whether he will be back to fulfill it.
Fall 2010: A hard working forward with a nose for the net, Minard should bring some consistent offense to the Griffins lineup. To do that he has to prove that he has overcome injury problems that cost him half of last season.
Role: Goal Scoring Winger
Projection: NHL 4th liner


7/2/10 Signed to 2-yr contract by Detroit (NHL)
