SAN JOSE, CALIF. - The American Hockey League announced today that Barracuda goaltender Troy Grosenick (@TGrose1) has been selected to the 2016-17 AHL First All-Star Team, and defenseman Tim Heed has been selected to the 2016-17 AHL Second All-Star Team as voted by coaches, players, and media in each of the league's 30 member cities.
"It's an extremely exciting and prideful moment for the organization," said Barracuda General Manager Joe Will. "The commitment and hard work these players have put into their craft this season has been remarkable, and the accolades are well deserved."
The fourth-year pro, Grosenick, ranks first in the AHL in shutouts (10), T-first in wins (29), second in goals-against average (2.00), and second in save percentage (.929). The native of Brookfield, WI, was named CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for February and he won CCM/AHL Player of the Week twice, on Dec. 12 and Feb. 20. Grosenick had a stretch from Nov. 17-Dec. 18 where he did not allow a goal in 248 minutes and eight seconds of play.
The San Jose Sharks signed Grosenick as an undrafted free agent on April 8, 2013, out of Union College.
Heed, in his first year in the AHL, is fourth among American League blueliners in points (54), T-fifth in goals (14), third in assists (40), T-fifth in power-play goals (8), and T-fifth in game winning goals (4).
In 2014-15, the Goteborg, Sweden, native was named Swedish Hockey League (SHL) Defenseman of the Year and was signed by the San Jose Sharks as a free agent on May 24, 2016.
