The Olds Grizzlys are pleased to announce the LOI signing of Griffin Gidney from the U18 AAA Calgary Northstars for the 2023-2024 AJHL season.
Head Coach & GM Scott Atkinson said “Griffin caught our scouting staff’s eye last season when he was playing his first season, as a 16-year-old, for his current team and his highly competitive nature separated him from the other players. We have been fortunate to have had Griffin skate with our team at practice for the last two seasons to track his growth. This resulted in his playing several games as an AP this year, and his high energy and high compete level was greatly valued by the coaching staff. We believe Griffin can infuse that style of play into our culture and with that addition his development will only continue to trend towards both his personal and our team goals for success. We are very pleased Griffin has chosen the Grizzlys to continue his hockey journey and we welcome him and his family to the Black and Gold.”
