Greere signed a one-year contract with the Islanders on Tuesday. Greer appeared in 47 games with AHL Colorado last season, picking up 16 goals and 16 assists over that span. The 23-year-old winger could draw into a few games with the Islanders in 2020-21, but he'll spend most of his time in the minors, so he won't be a viable fantasy option.
Greer was traded to the Islanders via the Avalanche on Sunday in exchange for Kyle Burroughs. The 23-year-old will get a fresh start in New York, as he never suited up in NHL action this past year for Colorado. Greer was a decent contributor for AHL Colorado last season, racking up 16 goals and 32 points across 47 games. Greer has one goal and six points in his career across 37 NHL games, so he'll look to make a push for a depth spot at the top level when training camp opens for the 2020-21 season with the Islanders.
Greer's charges for assault in New York City have been dismissed after paying the victim's medical bills and serving community service, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Columbus forward Sonny Milano (undisclosed) was also involved in the case and had his charges dropped under the same circumstances. Greer currently resides with AHL Colorado and has accrued 17 points over 29 games.
The Avalanche recalled Greer from AHL Colorado on Thuirsday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports. Andre Burakovsky (upper body) isn't expected to be available for Friday's matchup with Chicago, so Greer will likely round out Colorado's depth up front against the Blackhawks. The 22-year-old winger has picked up two goals in nine AHL games this campaign.
Greer was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Saturday. Greer didn't make the lineup for any of the three games he was with the big club. His demotion leaves the Avalanche with 12 healthy forwards, but with Matt Calvert (upper body) and Mikko Rantanen (lower body) seemingly getting closer to returning, they may not need the extra depth. If another injury occurs, Greer could be near the top of the list for callups.
