Top Ryan Graves News

  • Devils' Ryan Graves: Dealt to New Jersey

    Graves was traded from the Avalanche to the Devils in exchange for Mikhail Maltsev and a 2021 second-round draft pick Thursday.

    The Avalanche were going to have a tough time protecting all of the depth on their blue line. This deal allows them to get something in return for Graves instead of potentially losing him for nothing in the Seattle expansion draft. Graves had 15 points, 91 blocked shots, 77 hits and a plus-15 rating in 54 games as a steady two-way defenseman last season, though he may have to take on more of a defensive role in New Jersey.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Dishes helper Wednesday

    Graves picked up an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.

    Graves continues to find success in the playoffs, as he's picked up six points in as many outings. The sturdy defenseman has added a physical presence with 17 blocked shots, six hits and eight PIM in a second-pairing role. While he's better known for his defense, he's chipped in enough offense to be worth a look in DFS.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Slides assist in Game 1

    Graves posted an assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 1.

    Graves had the lone helper on the first of Nathan MacKinnon's two goals in the second period. After a difficult regular season, Graves has five points, 13 shots on net, eight PIM, a plus-10 rating and 17 blocked shots through five playoff contests. The non-scoring production should remain steady, but he shouldn't be expected to get on the scoresheet regularly.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Pops off for three points

    Graves scored a goal on four shots, dished two assists and went plus-4 in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3.

    Graves was the center of the Avalanche's offense. He opened the scoring by outwaiting goalie Jordan Binnington early in the second period. Graves also set up Alex Newhook's first NHL goal and a shorthanded empty-netter from J.T. Compher. The 26-year-old Graves has four points, 11 blocked shots, nine shots on net, a plus-8 rating and six PIM through three postseason contests.

    Graves notched an assist, four blocked shots, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 2.

He's already posted nine blocked shots, five shots on net and a plus-4 rating through two postseason contests. The 25-year-old will likely work in a top-four role as a defensive presence.

    Graves (upper body) will not be in Saturday's lineup against the Sharks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Nets second goal

    Graves scored a goal on four shots and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Graves scored at 17:06 of the second period to cut the deficit to 3-2, but the Avalanche's offense stalled out in the third period.

Graves has added 89 shots on net, a plus-12 rating, 81 blocked shots, 65 hits and 32 PIM in 2020-21.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Tallies first goal of 2020-21

    Graves scored a goal on four shots, adding three blocks and two hits, in Sunday's 4-1 win over Anaheim.

    Graves connected for his first goal of the season during the third period, sending a shot through traffic that banked off a pair of Anaheim defenders on its way to the net. Graves has actually generated his fair share of shots on goal -- he's recorded three or more in 13 of 40 games this season -- but hasn't replicated the touch that enabled him to score nine times in 2019-20.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Puts up assist

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Experiences scoring burst

    Graves had an assist, five shots on net, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Graves picked up the primary assist when he rifled a puck to the net that created a rebound for Joonas Donskoi, who had an empty swath of net at which to shoot. For Graves, it was his second point in as many games and sixth in the last eight. It seems like everyone's getting in on the scoring act for Colorado, which has 53 goals in its last 10 games. Graves is up to 11 points (all assists) through 34 games.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Logs assist in win

    Graves had an assist, three shots, one hit, two blocked shots and finished at plus-2 in Monday's 5-2 win over Anaheim.

    Graves was in the middle of scramble near the net and bagged the primary helper on Tyson Jost's goal early in the second period. It was his seventh point over the last 12 games for Graves, whose offense is coming around. His defense is, too, after he started the season failing to meet the expectations of head coach Jared Bednar. The second-pair blueliner is plus-13 over the last 11 games, a stretch during which the Avalanche are 9-0-2.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Distributes helper

    Graves notched an assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Coyotes.

    Graves has been more involved on offense lately with six helpers in his last nine outings. The 25-year-old rearguard is up to nine assists, 60 shots on net, 48 hits, 52 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 30 appearances. Graves has mostly worked in a bottom-four role, and his lack of offense makes him a risky option in standard fantasy formats.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Two-point effort Saturday

    Graves picked up two assists while adding three shots, three blocked shots, a hit and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Wild.

    The 25-year-old has been a consistent source of production in secondary categories all season, but this was Graves' first multi-point performance.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Finds assist in win

    Graves posted an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild.

    Graves helped out on Mikko Rantanen's third-period tally. The assist was Graves' third in the last six games. The 25-year-old blueliner has produced only six helpers through 27 contests overall. He's added 53 shots on net, 49 blocked shots, 43 hits and a plus-3 rating this year, but the lack of scoring limits his effectiveness in fantasy.
