  • Ducks' Derek Grant: Scores in loss to Vegas
    By RotoWire Staff

    Grant scored a power-play goal and logged 19:13 of ice time during Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights. The late bloomer has quietly recorded a respectable five goals and 11 points through his past 15 games, and his ice time has steadily climbed over the course of the season (17:35 per game over the past eight contests). The injuries to Ryan Getzlaf (face) and Ryan Kesler (hip) have provided Grant an opportunity to play meaningful minutes, and he's responded nicely. Considering the 27-year-old center's recent production, Grant could be an option in deeper settings.

  • Ducks' Derek Grant: Notches helper in loss to Preds
    By RotoWire Staff

    Grant recorded an assist through 13:48 of ice time during Friday's 5-3 loss to Nashville. The helper improved Grant to three goals and seven points through his past seven games, as he's been elevated into a scoring role because of all the injuries the Ducks are dealing with. The 27-year-old forward recorded just seven assists through 86 NHL games entering this season, so his recent scoring pace will probably cool sooner than later. Additionally, Grant will be relegated down the depth chart once Anaheim is healthy down the middle.

  • Grant recorded the first NHL goal of his career and added a second score in a 6-2 rout of the Canadiens on Friday. In 92 previous NHL games, Grant had never scored, but on the night he tallied his first goal, he scored twice. First, Grant scored on the power play, and then he tallied his second one in the third period. Grant is actually receiving more than 1:00 per game on the power play this season, but even still, judging that he only has nine points in 93 career games, including Friday, Grant can be safely left on the waiver wire.

  • Ducks' Derek Grant: Pointless through six games
    By RotoWire Staff

    Grant hasn't registered a point and owns a minus-2 rating through the first six games of the season. Grant is averaging just 10:29 of ice time per game, so he's not receiving much opportunity to contribute at five-on-five. The journeyman forward has slotted into a power-play role over the past four contests, but that projects to be a fleeting gig. Grant should continue to struggle moving the needle in the majority of fantasy setups.

  • Ducks' Derek Grant: Pens one-year deal
    By RotoWire Staff

    Grant agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Ducks on Saturday. Perhaps the biggest news for fantasy owners regarding Grant's deal is that it is a one-way contract which will help keep him up in the NHL, rather than being sent back and forth between the minors. The 27-year-old's offensive production was limited last season as he garnered a mere four assists despite playing in 46 games with Buffalo and Nashville. Even if the center does make the 23-man roster, there is no guarantee he will see a significant increase in ice time compared to his 2016-17 average (9:45).
