July 28, 2018 1 By Rachel Anderson

The off-season has been a busy one for the Grand Rapids Griffins. Amidst a myriad of signings and free agents making moves, Grand Rapids has been shifting some pieces to make valuable room. Many names from the Calder Cup champion team of the 2016-17 season have moved on. The 2017-18 season will usher in a host of youngsters ready for development and veterans to structure the new team. Leading the way is new Head Coach, Ben Simon, another shift for the AHL franchise. Access Hockey MI will give you the rundown of what’s happened so far this summer.
