Organizational Comments: Walleye Coach Dan Watson "Marcus has developed into a very solid, two-way D-man who plays in all situations. He has good vision and has good offensive instincts."
What GRC says: 2018-19 Spent most of the season the ECHL with Toledo posting 26 points in 48 games in his freshman season as a pro. Crawford provides depth in the system, but is likely to remain in Toledo nad will have a hard time finding playing time in the AHL.
Summer 2018 An ace powerplay quarterback in the OHL, Crawford showed the ability to create offense from the point, notching nearly a point per game last season. With the logjam in front of him, he is likely projected to start the season with the Walleye, and it remains to be seen how much opportunity he will have with the Griffins.

Role: Powerplay Quarterback
Projection: Minor league defender
