Grabovski (concussion) missed the entire 2016-17 campaign, but he remains hopeful that he will get past his injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. The German-born pivot reportedly resumed isolated skates during the second half of this season, so there still may be light at the end of the tunnel. When you consider that the 33-year-old posted 40-plus points in three of five campaigns with the Maple Leafs between 2009-13, it might be worth taking a flier on Grabovski in deeper fantasy drafts this fall. Even if he's a shell of his former self upon returning, the cost to get him is likely to be extremely low.
Grabovski (concussion) is expected to see a specialist in the near future with the hope of being cleared to play next season, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. After this season Grabovski will only have one year left on his contract. He would have to be cleared in order for the Islanders to buy him out or expose him to the expansion draft. Grabovski has been a bust since signing with the Isles as he has suffered multiple concussions. If he is cleared to play and the Isles don't buy him out he could end up as the third line center next season or in the AHL.
Grabovski (concussion) failed his physical and is officially listed as injured non roster. Grabovski's salary still counts toward the cap but he will continue to sit as he recovers from a concussion dating back to last season. The issue is certainly concerning given the length of recovery up to this point, so it may be best to monitor the centerman throughout camp if considering him in fantasy leagues.
Grabovski (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Monday, The Score reports. Grabovski's career has been marred by injuries, as he's barely averaged more than 53 games in 10 years of service time between the Habs, Leafs, Capitals and Islanders. Specifically, the 32-year-old skater from East Germany has sustained three concussions over the past two campaigns, so it's no surprise to learn that he failed to obtain medical clearance for training camp with the Isles. It's a shame that injuries are ruining Grabovski's career; he's a proven playmaker with three seasons of 45-plus points on his resume.
Grabovski (concussion) has not been medically cleared for training camp, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Grabovski has suffered three concussions over the past two seasons, and is still dealing with symptoms stemming from those injuries ahead of the 2016-17 campaign. The 32-year-old forward is clearly still a long way from returning to game action, as he has yet to be cleared to resume skating, and may not be able to return to practice until after the Islanders' regular-season schedule gets underway Oct. 13 against the Rangers. Owners keeping an eye on Grabovski's health can expect an update on the German forward's status once he's cleared to skate.
