      Islanders' Mikhail Grabovski: Playing Friday

      Grabovski (upper body) will play Friday against the Canadiens. Grabovski left Monday's game against Arizona with an upper-body ailment, but returned to practice Wednesday, and will draw into the Islanders' lineup for Friday's tilt against Montreal. He is expected to return to his role centering the Islanders' third line and second power-play unit in the contest.

      Islanders' Mikhail Grabovski: Practices Wednesday

      Grabovski (upper body) practiced Wednesday, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports. Grabovski took a stiff hit in Monday's matchup, but the good news was that it looked to be more of a rib injury and wasn't a head injury. He's been plagued by concussion problems in the past, but this injury is wholly unrelated to that. While he's not a big scorer as he has just eight points in 19 games, he's an integral piece of the Isles middle-six. The Islanders don't play again until Friday, which should give him time to rest up.

      Islanders' Mikhail Grabovski: Leaves with Upper-Body Injury

      Grabovski will not return to Monday night's game against the Coyotes with an upper body injury. Grabovski totaled just 7:45 of ice time Monday before leaving in pain after a collision. He can be considered day-to-day until the Islanders provide an update on his condition. His next chance to return to the ice will be on Friday when the Islanders host Montreal.

    • Isles' Grabovski Activated

      News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, TSN's James Mirtle reports.
      Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano strongly hinted Wednesday that the forward could be available for Thursday's Game 5 against the Capitals, and it looks like that will indeed be the case. The 31-year-old forward appears likely to skate on the second or third line during the evening playoff showdown. He last saw postseason action in 2012-13 as a member of the Maple Leafs.
    • Isles' Grabovski Has 'Good Chance' To Play Game 5

      News: Coach Jack Capuano said after Wednesday's practice that Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) has a "real good chance" of playing in Thursday's Game 5 against the Capitals, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
      Analysis: Capuano hasn't made any changes with his forward ranks over the last two games, but with the team generating just three goals during that time, it appears the Isles head man may be willing to mix things up with the series heading back to Washington for Game 5. Mikhail Grabovski hasn't played since Feb. 19 due to the concussion, but it's believed that he's been in the clear for quite some time now. He practiced Wednesday as a top-12 forward, likely indicating that he'll make his return to the lineup as a member of the team's second or third line.
    • Isles' Grabovski Close To A Return

      News: Grabovksi (concussion) is close to a return to action, according to SNY.tv.
      Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski would've probably already joined the team if this was the regular season. Coach Jack Capuano hinted Saturday that his absence from the lineup isn't just because of his health. Should the Islanders lose Game 3 they might insert Grabovski for a spark for Game 4.
    • Isles' Grabovski Close To A Return

      News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) is getting close to a return to action, according to SNY.tv.
      Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has participated in two full practices to go along with Monday's skate and hasn't suffered any setbacks. In a perfect world the Islanders may like to get Grabovski some game action before the playoffs begin next Wednesday but they may not have that luxury if Friday and/or Saturday become must wins just to get into those playoffs.
    • Isles' Grabovski Sheds No-Contact Jersey

      News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) practiced Monday with the Islanders without a non-contact sweater, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
      Analysis: Though Mikhail Grabovski traveled with the Islanders to Philadelphia for Tuesday's game, coach Jack Capuano indicated the forward isn't close to a return. Grabovski has been out of commission with the head injury since Feb. 19, and may need to get some conditioning work in with AHL Bridgeport before the Islanders feel comfortable using him in games. Any return to game action for Grabovski likely won't come until the playoffs.
    • Isles' Grabovski Skates With Team

      News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) skated with the team Friday, according to SNY.tv.
      Analysis: General manager Garth Snow is lucky that everyone remembers his trades for defenders Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk as signing Mikhail Grabovski to a four-year, $20 million contract looks like a bust. Grabovski only has nine goals and 19 points in 51 games this season. Unless he comes back healthy soon and performs fantastically in the playoffs, his first season with the Islanders won't be a memorable one.
    • Isles' Grabovski Not Close To A Return

      News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) is not close to returning to game action for the Islanders, according to SNY.tv.
      Analysis: We all know that concussions can be tricky; some players are able to return in a short amount of time while others seemingly take forever to recover. The Isles can afford to let Mikhail Grabovski recover at his own pace, as they have a glut of forwards on their roster right now that are forcing some tough decisions on coach Jack Capuano on a game-to-game basis.
