Boise, ID – Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced Friday afternoon that the Idaho Steelheads
have signed forward Tyler Gron.
Gron (GRAWN) joins the Steelheads after skating the first part of the season with Bloomington of the Central Hockey League. He earned his promotion to the ECHL after netting 21 goals – second-most in the league – in just 31 games with Bloomington. He made his professional debut at the end of last season with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers
, appearing in three games and doling out one assist.
The 23-year-old played his college hockey at Northern Michigan. One of his teammates was Mark Olver
, the son of former Steelheads head coach John Olver.
