The first-year forward out of Spruce Grove, Alberta, will be in uniform Friday night when the Steelheads host the rival Alaska Aces at 7:10 PM at CenturyLink Arena in downtown Boise. He?ll wear jersey no. 28. Gron (GRAWN) joins the Steelheads after skating the first part of the season with Bloomington of the Central Hockey League.

He made his professional debut at the end of last season with the AHL?s Bridgeport Sound Tigers, appearing in three games and doling out one assist. The 23-year-old played his college hockey at Northern Michigan. One of his teammates was Mark Olver, the son of former Steelheads head coach John Olver.
