GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins signed former Harvard goaltender Dov Grumet-Morris to a professional tryout.

A 2005 graduate of Harvard University, Grumet-Morris posted a 1.32 GAA and a 0.935 save percentage in two games with the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack (now Connecticut Whale) earlier this season. He’s totaled 29 career AHL games with Hamilton, Hartford, Manitoba, Milwaukee, Portland and San Antonio, boasting a 2.54 GAA, a 0.915 save percentage and four shutouts with an 8-13-5 record.

Grumet-Morris, a fifth-round pick (161st overall) by Philadelphia in the 202 NHL Entry Draft, led both 2007-08 ECHL Cincinnati and 2005-06 CHL Laredo to championships. He will be in uniform tonight when the Griffins visit the Houston Aeros at 8:35 p.m.
