HARTFORD, October 18, 2010: Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the team has signed goaltender Dov Grumet-Morris to a Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement.

The 6-2, 205-pound Grumet-Morris spent the last two seasons in Austria, appearing in 39 games last year with Jesenice. Prior to heading over to Europe, the 28-year-old Evanston, IL native logged a total of 27 AHL games in his first three pro seasons, with the San Antonio Rampage, Portland Pirates, Hamilton Bulldogs, Manitoba Moose and Milwaukee Admirals.
