Griffins to retire Jeff Hoggan’s jersey number

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Griffins are retiring Jeff Hoggan’s jersey number.

Hoggan will be honored in the game on Saturday, April 2, as the Griffins retire the No. 10 jersey. Hoggan was the team’s longest-serving captain and first-team captain in the Griffins Calder Cup championship.

“It was my family for four years. It was pretty special,” Hoggan said. “We had a good core of guys.”

Only two other Griffins players, number 7 Michel Picard and number 24 Travis Richards, have had their shirt numbers retired.

The game will start at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at griffinshockey.com.
