HARBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – The Power Play Break had an opportunity to sit down with Stu Grimson recently to talk hockey and his career. Grimson talks of his being drafted by the expansion Mighty Ducks and his initial disappointment but also the excitement of a new team and the entire effort of the Disney corporation behind the team.
“Dad was never so popular in his house when he was working for the Mouse,” Grimson says.
The Mighty Ducks were competitive in that first year and most of the early years and in fact tied a record for most wins by an expansion club.
The talk also goes to Ron Wilson who was that first coach (right after Emilio Estevaz).
