Organizational Comments: Red Wings Assistant GM Jim Nill:
What GRC says: 2012-13 An unsung hero from the championship squad, off the ice, Grant was the locker-room prankster that kept everyone loose. On the ice, he was an intimidating physical presence who would hit anybody on the other team, and would drop the gloves just as fast. The gritty winger played his checking role well, and was particularly effective against Syracuse in the finals where he notched 2 goals and 3 points. The recipient of a new one-year pact with Grand Rapids, Grant will return next season.
Fall 2012 Grant is an agitating grinder who will drop the gloves with anyone and can still play a regular shift. The gritty left winger is a team leader who can chip in between 10-15 goals and 200 penalty minutes and gives 100% every shift.
