Organizational Comments:
What GRC says: Summer 2016 The former Harvard Crimson captain's game is built largely on two things, speed and work ethic. He is a phenomenal skater who plays a two way game and excels at the defensive aspects of the game. With his speed he is a top penalty killer and a shorthanded threat. Not the biggest player, he makes up for his size with his award winning work ethic and drive. He has a lot of guys to beat out for an AHL job this fall, but if history is any indicator, don't count him out from doing it.
Spring 2016 Criscuolo got a short audition towards the end of the season and showed off his speed and opportunistic nature, generating 7 shots on goal. A heart and soul type of player, former Harvard captain is known for his work ethic and determination. He will be one of several bubble players coming out of camp and may have to earn his way up from the ECHL.
