Eligible for draft:
2007-08: Played in just one WHL game for the Kamloops Blazers, picking up a win in that contest.
2008-09: In a backup role for the Kamloops Blazers, Groenheyde posted a 4-11-0-1 record in 20 appearances. He finished with a 4.66 goals-against average and a .873 save percentage.
Groenheyde's size is his strength, as he covers plenty of the net. He will have to improve his puckhandling as well next season. A late-round pick at best later this month, Groenheyde has played well enough in Kamloops to capture the attention of pro scouts, but has yet to establish himself as a go-to-guy in the WHL. A good fit for a NHL team that can afford to be patient.
