|What GRC says: Summer 2016 A sniper with some size, Ford, will enjoy a bit of a homecoming with the Griffins next season, being reunited with his former coach in Todd Nelson, and his former college linemate in Ben Street. Ford plays with grit and is knows how to take the puck to the net and use his size and hands to create chances in front. He is a pure shooter and possesses a blistering shot.
