Kris Graf


Age: 18

Height: 6-0.

Weight: 185.

Number: 12.

Hometown: Edmonton.

Position: Left wing.

‘95-96 stats: 2 goals, 3 assists, 199 penalty minutes.

Local school: Ferris.

Draft status: Undrafted.

Quick check: Pound-for-pound probably the league’s fiercest fighter. Only three rookies in WHL history had more penalty minutes. Sidelined through training camp recuperating from surgery to repair hernia.

Coach’s comment: “He’s back but the summer didn’t do him any favors. The surgery has retarded his development. A lot depends on how hard he works. He’s in a catch-up mode.”
