Greg SpenrathAssistant Coach
Greg Spenrath enters his second season as Jason Christie's Assistant Coach for the Utah Grizzlies. Spenrath, a draft pick of the New York Rangers in 1989, returns to Utah where he combined to play 48 IHL games for the Grizzlies from 1996-1998. In 48 regular season games with Utah, the 6-foot-3 defenseman tallied 13 goals, 12 assists and 109 penalty minutes. During the 1998 Turner Cup playoffs, he had one goal and one assist. The Edmonton, Alberta native previously served as Head Coach of the ECHLs Fresno Falcons from 2003-2005. He led the team to a 39-25-8 record during his only full season as coach during the 2004-2005 season. His professional career total of 707 regular season games includes 361 games that were played with the Falcons, where, as captain, he led the team to the WCHLs Taylor Cup Championship in 2002. Obviously you are going to be very happy anytime you can bring in someone like Greg who has been a winner as both a head coach and a player, said Christie. Fans in Utah will also remember the aggressive work horse playing style he brought to the ice when he played here at the E-Center in the late 90s.
