Grossman was placed on waivers Saturday for the purpose of terminating his contract, Elliotte Friedman of HNIC reports. Friedman speculates that Grossman could be exploring the idea of playing overseas. This news isn't likely to cause a stir in fantasy circles as Grossman only played in four games with Calgary and struggled in a bottom-six role, going scoreless with a minus-4 rating.
Grossmann was assigned to AHL Stockton on Wednesday. Grossmann went unclaimed through his waiver period and will now head to the Flames' minor league affiliate on assignment. The 31-year-old blueliner recorded a minus-4 rating over three games played for the big club and will likely only be recalled if the team is in need of back end depth.
Grossman was waived by the team Tuesday, Craig Morgan of AZ Sports reports. Grossman has played in a mere three contests for the Flames this year, so it should come as no surprise the team opted to waive him. In those appearances, the veteran was minus-4 and recorded three shots on goals and seven hits. If he clears waivers, the blueliner will likely be reassigned to AHL Tucson where he can taken on a mentorship role for the organization.
Grossman has only suited up for just two of the Flames' 11 games so far this season, failing to register a point. This isn't much of a surprise, as Grossman joined the Flames on a tryout contract and signed a one-year deal at the tail end of training camp. He's been a healthy scratch as their seventh defenseman most nights and won't likely make any fantasy waves this season, as the 11th-year NHLer has only managed 35 points over his last three campaigns combined.
Grossman signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Flames on Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. The deal is valued at $575,000. Grossman had been on a PTO with the Flames, evidently impressing management enough to stick around for this season. The big rearguard had only produced 86 points (13 goals, 73 assists) in 589 career games between the Stars, Flyers, and Coyotes, respectively.
