Grimaldi posted an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers. Grimaldi ended a four-game dry spell with his helper in the second period. He's got career-bests in goals (10), points (31), plus-minus (plus-10), and shots (117) through 62 contests this year. The 27-year-old winger isn't overly physical though -- his value in most standard fantasy formats is very limited.
Grimaldi signed a two-year, $4 million extension with the Predators on Monday. The 27-year-old forward has been a bit of a late bloomer, but he's established himself this season with 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) over 58 games. Grimaldi has proven he can be a placeholder in the top six, although he's floated around the lineup this year. This deal will lock him down through the 2021-22 campaign.
Grimaldi had a goal, an assist and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Islanders. Grimaldi continues adding to his point total, with his two points Thursday bringing him up to 28 in 53 games. The Predators' forward, for the first time in his career, will finish a campaign with double-digit goals. Despite hitting a positive milestone in this one, Grimaldi remains a fantasy liability in most matchups.
Grimaldi gathered an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Jets. Grimaldi had the lone helper on Nick Bonino's first-period tally. The winger's career-best season continued -- he's at 26 points, 92 shots and a plus-10 rating in 49 games this year. Grimaldi has just 20 hits and eight PIM, so he's not going to add much physicality, but the scoring is enough to be worth a look in deeper formats.
Grimaldi netted a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Ducks. Grimaldi was key to the Predators' third-period comeback with an assist on Craig Smith's tally before potting the equalizer himself. He led the team with seven shots on goal. Grimaldi is up to 22 points and 69 shots through 38 contests this season. While he remains in a third-line role, the 26-year-old is setting himself up for a strong second half.
