Grinders

Welcome to the Grinder Award Page, what is a grinder you may ask?

A grinder is a player better known for his hard-work and poise, than his scoring. A grinder is often a player who has limited offensive skills, but is valuable to a hockey team due to their physical forechecking skills especially along the boards. The grinder is not in the spotlight as would be the offensively skilled scoring stars, but they are often fan favorites due to their work effort in games. Thus the grinder is often the player who, by their willingness to endure the physical abuse of going into the corners to dig out the puck, often sets up the goals for the team’s offensive stars. It is common belief in hockey that a good team needs a balance of scoring stars and grinders.
