McGrattan signed a deal with the Nottingham Panthers of Elite Ice Hockey League on Friday. McGrattan is an old school enforcer as evident by his 609 PIM in 317 contests in the majors. The veteran has not suited up in an NHL uniform since he was with the Calgary Flames during the 2014-15 season, and even then he only made eight appearances. With all levels of North American hockey seemingly dead set on eliminating fighting, it should come as no surprise that guys like McGrattan are heading abroad.
McGrattan was knocked unconscious in a brawl during Tuesday's AHL game against San Antonio, The Hockey News' Jared Clinton reports. McGrattan wasn't going to be much of a factor in the NHL this season, but this is still a pretty serious situation, although McGratten was able to regain full movement, so the worst has been avoided. Look for him remain sidelined with the San Diego Gulls indefinitely.
Brian McGrattan was reassigned to the Ducks' AHL affiliate in San Diego on Monday.
