Grand Rapids Summons Hamilton from Toledo
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Grand Rapids Griffins on Wednesday recalled defenseman Trevor Hamilton from the ECHL's Toledo Walleye.
Hamilton, 23, has split his rookie campaign between Toledo and Grand Rapids. He shows three points (2-1-3), a plus-five rating and two penalty minutes in four games with the Walleye and six PIM in five appearances with the Griffins. Hamilton made his AHL debut during the season opener at Texas on Oct. 5.
The 6-foot, 195-pound blueliner made his pro debut at the end of last season, playing in four games with the Walleye and notching one assist. A native of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., Hamilton was named the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team All-Big Ten selection in 2017-18 after pacing all conference defensemen with 29 points (6-23-29) in 38 games for the Penn State Nittany Lions.
The Griffins are on a seven-game point and five-game winning streak and host the San Antonio Rampage tonight at 7 p.m. to close out a four-game homestand.
Single-game tickets are currently on sale. Fans can secure their full-season, select-season or group ticket packages by calling (616) 774-4585 ext. 2 or visit griffinshockey.com for more information.
