GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday released center Josh Dickinson, left wing Max Humitz and defenseman Gordi Myer from their professional tryouts.

Dickinson has appeared in four contests this season with Grand Rapids, totaling one helper, four penalty minutes and a plus-one rating. A native of Georgetown, Ontario, the forward skated in his 150th game as a pro on Dec. 22 and has amassed 15 points (2-13—15) and 20 penalty minutes in 51 outings in the AHL.

Humitz appeared in two outings with Grand Rapids from Dec. 11-22 during his fourth stint with the franchise this year. Throughout his two-year career, the left winger has competed in 16 AHL games, compiling six points (3-3—6), two penalty minutes and a plus-five rating. A native of Livonia, Mich., Humitz skated in eight contests with the Griffins a season ago, registering five points (3-2—5) and two penalty minutes. Humitz returns to Kalamazoo (ECHL) where he has competed in 12 games and places sixth on the roster with 11 points (8-3—11) and a plus-one rating.

Myer was called up to the AHL for the first time in his career on Dec. 14 but did not see any game action.
