TIFFANY ON SPOLANSKY
"Few would have believed it, and our staff was not prepared to either.  Griffin spent the first two days of tryouts doing little to earn a spot on our roster as a walk-on.  But then on day three there was a spark, as Griffin demonstrated an uncanny knack for picking up ground balls and scoring goals with his long stick.  He has a great deal to improve upon in other areas, but Griffin could prove to be an asset with faceoff wing-play this spring."
