#20 Alex Grant

Age: 25 (Jan 20, 1989)
Birthplace: Antigonish, NS
Hgt/Wgt: 6’3 202 lbs  Shoots: Right
Acquired: In a trade from Anaheim Ducks involving André Petersson in March of 2014, re-signed in July.
Contract: $150,000/$700,000 1st yr of 1 yr, 2-way

Last Season: Anaheim//Norfolk Admirals//Binghamton; 2 games 2 goals 0 assists 2 PIM +2 // 52 games 7 goals 20 assists 46 PIM +1 // 19 games 2 goals 8 assists 6 PIM +1

Notables:

  • Played in two games for the Ducks scoring in both contests.
  • A savvy, yet very skilled offensive threat with an exploding slapper from the point. One of the team leader’s that has a voice in the locker room.
  • Had a club high 207 SOG combined with his time in Norfolk.
  • Likes to take the body. Smart with the puck and gets involved offensively.

Outlook: Remains one of the best trades the organization has ever made for Binghamton as Petersson afterwards signed with the HK Sochi of the KHL, while the Ottawa Senators upped the ante in getting Grant to re-sign. Should get paired up with Claesson again on the second unit as the two were very effective working together. On the Radar.
