Hans Gruber was drafted 28th overall by the Wolves in the S66 draft, and had a hard time adjusting to his limited ice time. In 72 games, he scored 8 goals and added 21 assists. Not terrible for a rookie, but he did what he could with him minimal ice time. This season, Gruber was promoted to the 2nd line and had the chance to play with the league leader in points, Rauno Palo. Gruber scores 22 goals and had 23 assists for 45 points. This was all done with limited playing time, only seeing the man advantage as a spare. The successful season could put GM Beaviss in a hard spot, as he has a number of solid young players, and will likely lose one of them to expansion.
Gruber is on pace to be over 600 tpe by the start of his third season and will likely top his point totals from this season, especially on a less talented expansion team where he could potentially be one of their stars. Time will tell what will happen!!
