When we asked for volunteers, Merrell was there.
If you look into the penalty box at Grizzly home games you will see the bearded Merrell handling the scoresheet duties. His signature move is opening the home penalty door to hear the ref and putting the book against the glass to write on the scoresheet. This week the Olds Grizzlys and the AJHL are proud to recognize Merrell in the Viterra AJHL Volunteer Profile.
