Goodbye Grand Rapids: Mac Says He’s Ready

Darren McCarty’s played, what he hopes, will be his final home game as a Grand Rapids Griffin.  He notched an assist last night in their 5-3 victory, giving him ten points in 13 games.  Now? He says he’s ready to hit Hockeytown.

“The last few games, things are coming together. Hockey-wise, everything is getting there,” McCarty said. “I think I’m ready to make that next step.”

Kudos (I would say “high marks”, but I’m not Canadian(en), so I’m not allowed) to Michael Zuidema of the GR Press for his coverage of McCarty’s comeback bid, and the Griffs in general.  His articles should be mandatory reading for the Diggers, as he’s done a good job balancing the big story (McCarty) with the daily grind of pumping out daily stories as a beat writer.

McCarty still has two more road games left this weekend before reporting to the Wings on Monday.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
