Kris Grant - Erie Otters
5'10 - 155 lbs
The small and diminutive Grant and former 11th round pick could fly under the radar and surprise observers this season with solid defensive play.
last season Grant played Junior A with Kingston scoring 1 goal and adding 8 assists in 35 games.
I spoke with Erie Otters play by play man Paul Roper and here's what he sai about Grant: "Kris is a defenseman that could quarterback the Otters power play in the future.", said Roper. He added "Right now, he is a bit undersized but he has a good shot and moves the puck well. He is a decent skater that could improve on his positioning, but you can see why he performed admirably on Junior A Kingston last season. He should be a Top-4 defenseman on the Otters next season," concluded Roper.
