Sunday will mark two months from the regular season opener and Monday will mark two months from the home opener on Saturday, October 14.
Tickets for all single games went on sale this week and are available for purchase.
Big week of signings with the addition of familiar scorer Peter Sivak, who has played 30 games against Utah and 16-17 Team MVP Michael Pelech who returns for his fourth season in Utah.
Let’s see if we can announce a player next week who the Grizzlies have just reacquired in a trade.
As this year’s version of the roster begins to be assembled and reshuffled, the Grizzlies have some assets to move. The first of which was sending Austin Brassard to Toledo for future considerations. I’d expect Brassard will have plenty of AHL interest there for call-ups midseason. He was with Anaheim’s AHL affiliate in San Diego for nearly three months last season after three full AHL seasons with the Winnipeg organization.
Utah currently has 17 players officially signed, which leaves us seven to announce. Six are forwards.
The Grizzlies locker room opened for 2017-2018 season business with the arrival of new Equipment Manager Chris Schornack.
