  • Sabres' Derek Grant: Moves to IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/17) Grant (shoulder) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Based on the NHL's rules for retroactivity as it pertains to seven-day IR, Grant will be eligible to return Feb. 25 for a road game against the Avalanche -- the Sabres will be off until then anyway due to the bye. A product of Michigan State University, Grant is still looking for his first NHL goal, despite appearing in 86 career contests between the Senators, Flames, Predators and Sabres.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Likely out until after bye week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/17) Grant (shoulder) is doubtful to play prior to the Sabres bye week which starts Monday.

    Given the timing of the bye week, Grant may just miss the two games against the Blues and Blackhawks and could be ready to go when the Sabres travel to Colorado to play the Avalanche on Feb. 25. Considering the 26-year-old is still looking for his first NHL goal, despite 80 career outings, fantasy owners are unlikely to be chomping at the bit to get him into the lineups.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Leaves Thursday's game with injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/17) Grant left Thursday's game with a shoulder injury and won't return, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.

    The center hasn't been able to get much going offensively this year, with only four points in 45 games for Buffalo and Nashville. His current injury timeline isn't clear, but if it isn't too serious, he will get a chance to return Saturday against St. Louis.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Called up from minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/17) As expected, Grant was recalled from AHL Rochester on Thursday.

    Look for Grant to man the fourth-line center position in place of Nicolas Deslauriers, who is still picking up the nuances of defending down the middle. While Grant adds vigor to the bottom six and on the penalty kill, his lack of projected playing time makes him an unappealing fantasy option.

    Sabres' Derek Grant: Could return to big club

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/17) Grant may be joining the Sabres "soon," Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

    The Sabres already had a full 23-man roster when Grant was claimed off waivers Monday, but the team is searching for a fourth-line center and Grant is the best immediate option. Nicolas Deslauriers is holding that spot down at the moment, but he has very little experience playing center, and up until a few years ago was still playing defense. Grant has been a disappointment for the Sabres after an outstanding training camp, and has very minimal value in fantasy leagues.

  • 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.
