Griffith Earns High Praise From Jets Staff
His play, including two assists in the last two games, has earned praise from Jets head coach Paul Maurice, and a continued opportunity to make the team’s opening night roster.
“I’ve liked the way he’s played, I’ve liked the way he’s moved,” said Maurice in a team news release. “He’s got a good set of hands, a real nice pass at the end (of the game). He’s good, he’s made a real positive impression.”
Griffith was the only member of the Jets’ organization to play in all three preseason games to this point.
After splitting last year between the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres and AHL’s Rochester Americans, Griffith chose to sign a one year, two way contract with the Jets for a fresh start.
“It’s just an overall great organization (the Jets),” said Griffith about his new team. “That was my first thought – I wanted to go to a good organization and they had such a successful year last year. It was a pretty tough year with Buffalo, we obviously didn’t have a great year. I just wanted a fresh start with an organization that’s done well in the past.”
The Jets are back in action Sunday against Edmonton and Monday against Calgary.
