Seeing Grzelcyk left in limbo since the team's exhibition games in Finland didn't sit well with Parker who yesterday told the Boston Hockey Blog, "I think they've done him and us a disservice. They should have made that decision before they left Helsinki."
In a USCHO pre-tournament assessment of Team USA’s talent, general manager Jim Johannson saids he really likes the way the 5-9 Grzelcyk plays and suggested he might be the “most feisty” player on the blueline.
“He plays bigger,” Johannson said. “He’s strong on the puck and a dynamic skater. He can play in all situations and sees the ice well. If you put a puck in the corner, we like the chance that [Grzelcyk] will come away with the puck.”
New England Hockey Journal profiled Grzelcyk and Harvard freshman Jimmy Vescey, who grew up playing hockey together in Charlestown, Mass.
