Good Signs For The Grand Rapids Griffins

from Steve Kaminski of Mlive,

Grand Rapids Griffins coach Ben Simon was keeping a close eye on the Detroit Red Wings’ first scrimmage Tuesday.

Simon told the media during a Wednesday afternoon Zoom interview that he likes what he has seen so far.

While Simon did not get into player specifics, he has been impressed with the potential a Grand Rapids roster could look like when the American Hockey League season opens Feb. 5.

“When you look at the potential of the players who may get sent down to Grand Rapids, I see a lot of good things,” Simon said. “The guys look great, they look like they are in tremendous shape, they look like they are moving well.

“First of all, I’m excited to get back to work and work with these prospects and help continue their development. It does look good right now. There are a lot of guys who look like they put in a lot of work in the summer. Guys who have been playing over in Europe have come back, they look good too. It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be a different kind of excitement.”
