McGrattan Returns to Face Shelley
Brian McGrattan made his return to the NHL last night. McGrattan missed a few months after entering the league and PA’s substance abuse program. Upon exit the Coyotes sent him to San Antonio for a warm-up game, then recalled him to Phoenix to play in just his fourth NHL game this season.
McGrattan and Shelley had one previous fight a few years ago, when both were out east (geographically, at least).
Ben Eager and Mike Rupp dropped the gloves in Martin Brodeur’s (and Patrick Elias’) record-breaking game.
