Graves is also a local guy from the Toronto area.........he would be pumped just like Nieuwendyk currently is to be playing back home in front of family and friends...........He's a very tough gritty player that would fit in nicely with some of the other guys we already have like Tucker, Domi, Marchment, etc..........
