December 5, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Grand Rapids Griffins News Release

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.

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.
