Organizational Comments:
What GRC says: 2018-19 Vying for the league lead in goals over the first half, Terry fell hard during the second, posting only 2 goals in his last 15 games and 6 in his last 30. Once the scoring dried up, he was a shell of his former self, and teams would not even bite on him being used as a decoy on the powerplay. The lone bright spot for Terry was his season high five-point game, which came in the midst of a nine-game scoring slump. Signed for next season, the Griffins hope that Terry can regain his touch, as the former AHL scoring star will be counted on to provide offense.
Summer 2018 The reigning AHL scoring champ, Terry should replace some of the offense lost with the departure of Ben Street and Matt Lorito. The talented forward lacks size and speed, and doesn't power to the net ala Eric Tangradi, but uses his excellent anticipation to arrive in the right place before the play to convert an A+ scoring chance, usually with his wicked wrister. He has improved defensively from earlier in his career and has spent a couple of seasons in the NHL as a result. He remains a bubble player capable of big numbers at the AHL level.
