Grabovski (concussion) may not play another game for the Islanders, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Grabovski has now missed significant portions of the last two season due to concussions. Even if he reports to training camp in September medically cleared and ready to play he may have a difficult time cracking the starting lineup and could also be a candidate to be sent to the AHL so that the team could remove his $5 million salary from the cap.
Grabovkski (concussion) has stopped skating, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. This would seem to indicate that Grabovski has suffered additional concussion symptoms as he was skating earlier this week. His loss shouldn't be a major one for the Islanders as he has only scored 18 goals in 109 games for New York.
Grabovksi (upper body) has resumed skating, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Grabovski has missed 16 of the past 17 games due to injury and has generally been a big fat bust since signing with the Islanders before the 2014-15 season. He only had nine goals in 51 games last season, the same total in 58 games this year, not exactly what the Isles expected when they signed him to a four-year $20 million contract.
Grabovski (undisclosed) was sent back to Long Island on Thursday to undergo further evaluation. Grabovski recently missed 10 games with an upper-body injury, but returned to action Tuesday against the Penguins, logging 17:01 of ice time and one blocked shot. It appears as though the former fifth-round pick will now miss at least a few more contests with this latest ailment, as he likely won't travel with the Islanders for the team's matchup with Nashville on Thursday or the team's tilt against the Stars on Saturday. Expect an update on Grabovski's status following his evaluation by the Islanders' medical staff.
Grabovski (upper body) will get back into the lineup Tuesday at Pittsburgh, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Grabovski had been out of the lineup since Feb 19. The Islanders need all of the goal scoring they can get but Grabovski only has 18 goals in his last 108 games. Grabovski will center the third line once again for the Isles.
