Grant signed a three-year, $4.5 million contract with the Ducks on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. The Ducks traded Grant to the Flyers at the deadline last season, but the 30-year-old center will return to Anaheim. He piled up 14 goals and six assists over 49 games with the team last season and will likely serve in a bottom-six role once again with centers Ryan Getzlaf, Adam Henrique and Sam Steel returning to the team.
Grant managed an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens in Game 6. Grant had the primary helper on Kevin Hayes' first-period tally. Offense isn't a huge part of Grant's game -- he has just two assists in nine playoff appearances this year. He's added nine hits and 11 shots on goal while skating in a bottom-six role.
Grant collected an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-1 round-robin win over the Lightning. Grant helped out on a Nicolas Aube-Kubel goal 7:40 into the first period. The 30-year-old Grant had 25 points, 94 shots on goal and 30 PIM in 56 games between the Flyers and Ducks this year. He'll likely fill a bottom-six role in the playoffs, as well as picking up some penalty-killing duties.
Grant had 15 goals and 25 points with a plus-1 rating and 94 shots on net in 56 games with the Ducks and Flyers prior to the NHL suspending the season in March. The 29-year-old tallied a career-high 14 goals and 20 points in 49 games with the Ducks. Then in seven contests with the Flyers prior to the league's pause, he posted a goal and four assists, giving him a career best in points. Grant also has a career-high 30 PIM and 94 shots this season.
Grant collected two assists and four hits in a 5-2 win over Washington on Wednesday. A trade deadline acquisition from Anaheim, Grant went scoreless in his first two games with his new club but has broken out with two points in each of his last two outings. Wednesday's two assists gave the 29-year-old 24 points on the year, matching the career high he established in 2017-18 for the Ducks. Grant is currently centering Philadelphia's third line with James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Pitlick, a trio that has a chance to be a solid two-way unit down the stretch.
