Although the start of his professional career took a bit longer than imagined, Max Humitz didn’t have to wait long to pick up his first AHL points once it did.
On March 23 of last year, the Grand Rapids Griffins signed the Livonia native and HoneyBaked alum to a one-year deal. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 AHL season didn’t begin until Feb. 5.
And in his third game, Humitz picked up his first career goal and assist in the opening period of a massive win over the Rockford IceHogs.
Humitz joined the Griffins following a four-year career with Lake Superior State where he served as captain in his senior campaign. He posted 111 points in 149 career games.
Humitz has stayed in state for much of his career, as after playing for HoneyBaked, he moved onto the USHL ranks with Lincoln and eventually found his way to Muskegon.
