Griffith A Valuable Mentor, Entering Free Agency Again
Wallaceburg’s Seth Griffith will be an unrestricted NHL free agent, again this offseason.
Free agency opens October 9, and Griffith is likely destined to find his way back into an NHL system and competing in training camp for an NHL job.
With the European seasons already underway, including leagues like the KHL, Griffith’s absence from those ongoings shows he’s focused on staying in North America, at least to see what the NHL interest is.
The talented scorer, who led the AHL’s Manitoba Moose in scoring last season while under contract with the Winnipeg Jets, is also becoming a valuable mentor at the AHL level for prospects.
Griffith last saw NHL action in 2017-2018 playing 21 games for the Buffalo Sabres that season, a year after playing 24 games split between the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs.
The 27-year-old will be entering his 8th professional campaign.
If the AHL is unable to operate this season, as the league has stated they need 50% attendance capacity to operate, players like Griffith may rapidly be on the hunt for jobs overseas.
