Too bad.  I was hoping he would stick around Grand Rapids for a while.  Ah well, I wish him luck!

Philadelphia Inquirer reports Mike
Knuble will sign with Flyers on Friday. He was with Grand Rapids
Griffins on pro tryout contract.

Homer on Knuble: "He's excited to
come back. He's familiar with some of our players.There's still a few
guys left here from when he played."

He's headed to Philadelphia to take a physical tomorrow and if he
passes, the Flyers will sign him.  The Flyers hope Knuble will help
after Hartnell broke his foot.



I don't think Knuble had a chance with the Wings this season, but if he was a defenseman, that would have been another story.

Good for him. Nice to see that he can get in some more NHL games before he retires.

Nice, too bad he didn't stay a bit in GR. I bet they would have loved him around there.

I went to the Griffins game on Wednesday and it was awesome.  Knuble has been assistant coaching for his son's team in Kentwood.  He got a suite for his kids team and the parents with food and the whole nine yards.  We sat just below that suite and those kids were cheering every time Knuble went out on the ice.  I was hoping Knuble would have hung around Grand Rapids a bit more and played for the Griffins for the rest of the season.  The fans really loved seeing him play.

So, a broken foot helped to get him his latest job?

Them's the breaks.
