Top UFA Thomas Greiss

Thomas Greiss is a nine year North American professional.  

Greiss is a butterfly style goaltender with a decent glove hand and he has solid rebound control.  I would consider him an average puck-handler.  

Thomas Greiss feels that he’s ready for the challenge of being a #1 goaltender in the NHL.

Watching him play in Arizona last year I feel he might be a solid option for a team in need of a goaltender upgrade.

Right now he may be best suited in a platoon situation.  Maybe in Winnipeg !!!  

2013-14 stat line:

Games: 25  GAA: 2.29   SV%: .920   W: 10  L: 8  T: 5   SO: 2


Thomas Greiss is coming off a 1 year contract that paid him $750,000 per season.

Career Highlights:

1.  Represented Germany 6 times internationally at the Junior and Senior Men’s WHC.

NHL teams are allowed to contact pending UFA’s on June 24th but cannot sign any UFA’s until July 1st aka “Free Agent Frenzy”.
