Details of Grand Rapids Griffins and the Ticket Luck value
Representing the American Hockey League (AHL) the Grand Rapids Griffins play in the Western Conference of the Midwest Division. Making its debut in 1996 in the international Hockey League (IHL) the team has won two Conference championships and six Division championships. The Grand Rapids Griffins made an impact during the inaugural game against Indianapolis Ice. Pavol Demitra, Danton Cole, Jeff Nelson, Michel Picard are among the prominent names that immensely contributed to the popularity of the team at the beginning of its career.
After the team proved its mettle the IHL deemed the inaugural season a success followed by a 1997 ALL-Star Game which was witnessed by more than 10,000 people at Van Andel Arena. As the season tickets sales hit the 7,000 mark an IHL record was made by the Griffins. The team has been in the limelight lately for claiming the Calder Cup championship by defeating Syracuse Crunch.

Prior to the 1997-998 season players like Glen Metropolit, Mark Greig, Patrick Lalime and Ed Patterson joined the Griffins but despite their presence the team failed to live up to people’s expectations. However in 1998 Guy Charron, the new head coach tried to change the game by bringing in names like Robert Patrovicky and Darren Rumble. Joe Frederick and Andrei Vasilyev’s presence also provided the team with a considerable boost. The team failed to leave a lasting impression but managed to create some memorable moments. Metropolit’s first ever hat-trick was one of the most talked about moments. On the other hand, Petrovicky emerged as IHL’s Player of the Month as he scored five goals and twelve assists in twelve games. At present the Griffins are affiliated with Detroit Red Wings of NHL.
