Olczyk, Grier to coach USA Hockey prospects teams

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Former NHLers Eddie Olczyk and Mike Grier have been selected to coach the two teams participating in USA Hockey's All-American Prospects game later this month.

Olczyk currently works as a broadcaster and is a U.S. Hockey Hall of Famer after a 16-season NHL career. Grier played 15 NHL seasons, including two stints in Buffalo, where the game will be played on Sept. 25.

The game will feature 42 of the top American-born prospects eligible for the NHL draft in June.

USA Hockey established the annual prospects game in 2012.
