Mike Grier, brother of Dolphins GM Chris Grier, hired by Sharks as first Black GM in NHL history

by | Jul 5, 2022


The hire is a historic one for the Sharks and professional hockey as Grier, 47, becomes the NHL’s first African-American general manager, he faces a myriad of challenges, finding a new head coach, the draft is only two days away, the ongoing Kane saga, and if course trying to steer the Sharks back to contention.  That is a lot for Grier and his Staff to contend with on Day One.

They appear to be up for a coming rebuild and returning the Sharks to the glories of yesterday.  “Along with my staff, I look forward to the challenge of building a fast, competitive, and hardworking team that Sharks fans will enjoy watching and be proud of. One of the things I remember most about playing in San Jose is the home-ice advantage that our fans bring through their passion and energy, making SAP Center one of the most difficult buildings to play in,” Grier said.

Ever wonder what it would be like if your everyday car was a ZAMBONI?!?!?
