The AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins announced Todd Krygier as their newest assistant coach on Monday, the third stop in his career since leaving Novi High School after the ‘12-13 season.
Krygier coached the Wildcats for seven seasons, leading the school to its first — and only — state championship in 2011 along with Final Four appearances in 2007 and 2009. From there, he spent three seasons with the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the USHL before making the jump to NCAA, where he served as an assistant at Western Michigan University.
The 53-year-old joins the Red Wings’ AHL affiliate serving as an assistant under second-year head coach Ben Simon. The Griffins went 38-27-7 last season, qualifying for the playoffs as the fourth seed in the Central Division.
