  • Predators' Derek Grant: Plucked off waivers by Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/17) Grant was claimed off waivers by the Predators on Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    Grant was let go by the Sabres after producing a mere three assists in 35 games and struggling to a minus-3 rating. Before claiming Grant, the Predators were making a habit of shuffling Pontus Aberg about the organization's ranks, but with Grant now in tow, it won't be such slim pickings for coach Peter Laviolette down the middle. At 6-foot-3, Grant has a long reach, and he provided 27 goals in 36 games with AHL Stockton when he was with the Calgary system last season, so this could turn out to be a low-risk, high-reward snag for the Predators, assuming he buys into the system.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Placed on waviers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/17) Grant was waived by the Sabres on Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    After winning a roster spot out of training camp and making a strong case to be the team's checking line center, Grant scored just three points in 35 games with a minus-3 rating. He's been largely ineffective and despite being short on centers, the Sabres have elected to waive him, likely for the purposes of assigning him to AHL Rochester. The 26-year-old has spent most of his career in the AHL, and he should provide a boost for the struggling Amerks. In the meantime, the Sabres have yet to make a call-up but it's assumed that they'll be giving other young forwards in the system a chance with the big club.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Collects first point of 2016-17

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/10/16) Grant recorded a first-period assist during Wednesday's loss to Ottawa.

    Grant received just 12:09 of ice time during the game, and he's registered just nine shots through the first 13 games of the season. His limited role and lack of offense makes the 26-year-old center a fantasy afterthought at this point.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Frontrunner for roster spot

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/28/16) Grant continues to impress at camp and could be named to the roster when the season starts, The Buffalo News reports.

    Grant and general manager Tim Murray have known each other since both were members of the Ottawa Senators organization, and Grant was signed this past summer to a one-year deal. The 6-foot-3 center has been consistently excellent in the AHL over the past two seasons, and though there's a logjam at center with Ryan O'Reilly, Jack Eichel, Zemgus Girgensons and Johan Larsson in the mix, there is a lineup spot available and carrying extra centers never hurt. Should Grant make the team, it'll likely be as the fourth-line center. Though he scored 45 points in 36 games for AHL Stockton last year, his fantasy upside in the NHL is limited.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Winds up with Buffalo on one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/2/16) Grant agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Sabres on Saturday.

    Last season, Grant shuffled between the Flames and minor-league affiliate AHL Stockton. He flaunted his scoring skills with the Heat, amassing an eye-popping 27 goals in 36 games. Listed at 6-foot-3, 202 pounds, the power forward has struggled to produce offensively in the NHL -- that much is evident from his output of three points in 40 games. Still, he's a nice depth option for a Sabres team growing offensively with center phenom Jack Eichel leading the charge toward respectability.

  • September 29, 2014: Sens Reassign Grant
    The Senators reassigned Grant to AHL Binghamton on Monday.Grant suited up for 20 games with the Sens in 2013-14, but only managed two assists over that span. With younger players like Curtis Lazar in line for a shot at the NHL, it looks like Grant may have trouble making a significant impact at the NHL level this year.
