Nice article.

Gru was a fan favorite in Windsor, which is really saying something considering how hard Windsor fans are on goaltenders (Campbell anyone?).

I always liked Gru and am glad to hear he's doing well. Hopefully he makes it up to the show sometime soon.

Good job GRUUU!!! Two of those goalies played in a Spits uni and it's nice to see them doing good in pro hockey.
