Graniero hoping third time is the charm

Updated: Sep 2, 2023

"I'm hoping to make the team full time. That would be pretty great." Forward Nick Graniero.

Nick Graniero is one of ten players that will open training camp with the Windsor Spitfires after suiting up for the LaSalle Vipers Wednesday night in an exhibition game against the Chatham Maroons. "The past couple of weeks have been good like getting back on the ice, getting back in the flow of things." said the 19-year old. "I'm excited for camp."

The LaSalle native was called up last season and saw action in seven games with the Spitfires. He worked hard over the summer training at ETS and continued playing hockey without skates. Graniero, along with teammate Owen Findlay, played in the Windsor Ball Hockey Association where he quickly became an offensive threat. He also represented Windsor at the national ball hockey championships in Mississauga.

"Graniero is a player who you want on your team. " said new Vipers head coach Chad Shepley. "He has tremendous speed and plays a strong power forward game. Playing a handful of games with the Spits last year he should be feeling confident heading into camp."

Here are some shots from Wednesday's exhibition game between the Vipers and Maroons. LaSalle opened the game with three goals in the first five minutes and went on to win 5-2.
