Greg Wolfe joins TPH Detroit staff
Total Package Hockey is proud to announce the addition of Greg Wolfe to the TPH Detroit team.
Wolfe, a former captain of the Michigan State Spartans and professional hockey player in North America and Norway, will be a player development coach and mentor for the TPH Center of Excellence in Bloomfield, Mich., for the 2019-2020 school year.
“We are excited to add Greg Wolfe, a tremendous example of an outstanding student-athlete, to our staff in Detroit,” said TPH Detroit director of hockey Dwayne Norris. “He maintained excellence in the classroom during his time as captain of Michigan State, and he has continued to work on and off the ice ever since. Greg will be a great role model for our student-athletes, both in how to improve as a hockey player and to prepare for life away from the rink.”
Wolfe, a Canton, Mich., native, just concluded a five-year professional hockey career that spanned the AHL, the ECHL and Norway’s top professional league.
A two-time captain of the Spartans, he maintained a 3.6 grade-point average during his four years in East Lansing, and he won the Big Ten Medal of Honor and the Big Ten Sportsmanship Awards in his senior season of 2013-14. Prior to his collegiate career, Wolfe played Tier 1 youth hockey for HoneyBaked and two years of USHL hockey for the Chicago Steel and Omaha Lancers.
From 2014-17, he split time between AHL and ECHL franchises, playing in a total of 23 AHL games with the Iowa Wild and Albany Devils. In 2017-18, he spent the season playing for Sparta Sarpsborg in Norway’s top league, and last season, he returned to the U.S. to play for the Toledo Walleye, where he racked up 51 points in 63 games.
His on-ice pursuits haven’t limited him from success off of it, however. Since 2017, Wolfe has run his own hockey school, while also serving as a player advisor and mentor for Coast 2 Coast Player Development, where he helps guide younger generations of players chasing their hockey dreams.
Wolfe is the second addition to the TPH Detroit CoE staff this off-season, joining fellow Michigan State product Jeff Lerg in Bloomfield.
