Matt Graham Returns to Prowlers in Bigger Role
Port Huron, MI - The Port Huron Prowlers are happy to announce Matt Graham will be returning to wear #51 this upcoming season. Graham, heading into his 6th season of professional hockey, will also be taking on more responsibility with being named Player-Assistant Coach for the Prowlers.
When asked how Head Coach Pace made his choice on his assistant coach he said: “It just happened that Matt was looking to stay in town this summer, and it couldn’t have been a better fit. Matt is more than qualified for the position, both on and off the ice. He shows up with a great attitude every day and I’m looking forward to having him push the guys this year with a solid work ethic.”
Graham earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management from Becker College in Massachusetts and has years of professional hockey experience in North America and Europe, making him a great choice to help lead the team.
The Rancho Cucamonga, CA native is feeling at home working for the Prowlers. “It’s been fun and exciting so far this summer, and I know it’s going to be a challenge with more responsibility on my shoulders this year. We’re all in this together and we have a great group of core guys returning, which is going to help make my job easier. I’m excited to get the season started.”
Graham is coming off a career high in points, with 66 in 49 games for the Prowlers in the 2017-18 season. With an average of over a point per game in his professional and college careers, Graham will be one of the go-to guys on the Prowlers offense this season. The team is confident he will be one of the league’s top penalty killers, along with having a presence on the team’s power play.
The 2017-2018 Regular Season Champion Port Huron Prowlers will open up the season on the road in Winston-Salem when they take on the Carolina Thunderbirds. They return to Port Huron for their Home Opener on Friday, November 9th when they welcome the expansion Elmira Enforcers to McMorran Arena.
