Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Pots two scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored two goals, including a short-handed marker, on two shots in a 4-2 victory against the Kings on Saturday.

The 31-year-old's shooting percentage spiked to 16.7 percent in his small sample size from this season (27 games) after Saturday. Most owners would expect that shooting percentage to drop over the final few weeks, but it won't necessarily with Grabner. From 2016-18, he registered a 16.4 shooting percentage in 156 games, so he's used to a high-level of success on few opportunities. It's quite possible that Grabner will keep scoring at his current rate. He has eight goals and 13 points in 27 games this season.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Leads team's forwards in ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) skated 17:40 in a 2-0 win over the Flames on Thursday.

In his first game back after missing 41 contests with the injury, Grabner led all Coyotes forwards in ice time. He added a team-high five shots on goal and tossed three hits as well. The speedy winger should be able to add to his 11 points in 26 contests over the last chunk of the season while playing in the middle six.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) will be back in the lineup against the Flames on Thursday, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

Grabner has been removed from IR per the NHL media site, which was the final hurdle before he could suit up. The veteran may be eased back into action in a bottom-six role, especially considering he missed the last 41 games, though he could certainly get a look on the first or second line as well. Conor Garland or Josh Archibald figure to be the odd man out with Grabner healthy.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Return imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) will return to action in either Thursday's game against the Flames or Saturday's clash with the Kings, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Grabner has been out of commission for 41 consecutive games, and the winger remains on injured reserve for the time being. However, he's almost ready to return for a Coyotes team that actually has an outside chance of making the playoffs. The speedster has averaged 0.45 points per game over 10 years of NHL service time between six clubs, so check to see if he's available in deep leagues.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) is out for Saturday's game against the Red Wings.

This isn't surprising, given that Grabner has been out since Dec. 4 and is still on injured reserve. An eye injury is tricky, because it doesn't have a clear track record for recovery. With the Austrian out, Christian Fischer is expected to be in the lineup for the first time in five games.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Remains on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) is still on injured reserve and is slated to miss Thursday's clash with Vancouver, Alan Robinson of reports.

Grabner has been steadily improving, but the fact that he remains on injured reserve is a good indication his vision is less than 100 percent. The Coyotes are in the hunt for a Wild Card spot and could certainly use the center back in the lineup, as he's managed 11 points in 25 games this season and could offer some much needed depth scoring. Arizona hasn't announced a timeline for Grabner's return to action, so fantasy owners should consider him day-to-day at this point.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Getting closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) skated in a full contact jersey for Saturday's practice and 'looked good', but according to coach Rick Tocchet he still needs to clear a few areas vision-wise before he's ultimately cleared, Catherine Silverman of The Athletic Arizona reports.

Grabner sat out Sunday night's win over the Jets. The Yotes next play Tuesday night at home against the Panthers. Hopefully we'll have more news coming from their camp before that game.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) is getting close to rejoining the lineup, as general manager John Chayka told reporters, "He doesn't have to be 100 percent to play, but we'd like to get him there," Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Based on Chayka's comments, it sounds like Grabner might be ready to play if it were a playoff game, but the team wants to get him fully ready to make a run at a wild-card spot. Once given the green light to suit up, the Austrian figures to jump back into a top-six role and might still be able to reach the 20-point mark.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Sporting non-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) joined Friday's practice in a non-contact jersey, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.

Grabner has been out of the lineup since Dec. 1 due to his eye injury, a stretch of 29 games on IR. The winger appears to be making strides in his recovery, but remains without a timeline to return to action. While he hasn't been shut down for the year, at this point, only fantasy owners in dynasty/keeper formats will want to consider hanging onto the Austrian in hopes of him returning to being a 30-plus point producer next season.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Begins off-ice training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) has begun an off-ice training regime, but remains without a timeline to return to action, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Grabner continues to be out indefinitely after taking a stick to the eye Dec. 1 versus St. Louis. Considering the winger has yet to resume skating, fantasy owners can probably expect him to be out until at least mid-January, although the club hasn't provided any specifics, so it could certainly be longer.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Designated for injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (eye) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Considering Grabner is out indefinitely since suffering an eye injury, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him land on IR. The winger recorded just one point in his previous seven outings prior to getting hurt. The fact that the Austrian doesn't see much power-play ice time (0:03 per game) limits his fantasy value.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Out indefinitely with eye injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner will be out indefinitely after a stick caught his left eye in Saturday's 6-1 home win over the Blues, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Craig Morgan of The Athletic shared on social media a picture that Grabner took of himself, with the eye bruised, bloodied and swollen shut, but the Austrian winger is staying upbeat, adding "at least the stache is still intact." Mario Kempe is likely to get more involved with Grabner unavailable, and the 'Yotes could promote a player from AHL Tucson.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Scores shorthanded in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored with his team a man down in the first period, helping earn a 2-1 win over Nashville on Thursday.

Figure this one out: of Grabner's five goals this season, four have come shorthanded. The Austrian is proving pretty useful on the penalty kill despite rarely appearing on the power play, so if your league offers rewards for scoring shorthanded, Grabner's a guy you want on your roster.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Extends points streak to six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored shorthanded and added an assist as his team took a 5-4 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Thursday.

Grabner doesn't get to produce on special teams much, but the shorty was a nice bonus for him in the midst of a six-game surge that's seen him post eight points. Ride his streak for as long as it continues and enjoy the points.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Keeps streak alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored at even strength in Monday's 5-2 home loss to the Flyers.

Grabner is averaging a half-point per game, but only recently did he shift into a better gear. The shifty Austrian skater had a lone assist through his first eight games with the Coyotes but he's since compiled a five-game point streak that's consisted of four goals and two helpers. While he remains a key cog in shorthanded situations, Grabner being left out of the power-play picture really hurts his chances to put up big numbers in the fantasy realm.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Tallies first goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored a pair of goals in the 7-1 victory against the Lightning on Saturday.

Heading into Saturday, Grabner had struggled, scoring no goals and just two assists in his first nine games with the Coyotes. But Saturday, he scored twice on three shots. Perhaps this will get him going. Last season, Grabner posted 27 goals and 36 points in 80 games with the Rangers and Devils.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Struggling with new squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner recorded a game-high six shots but was blanked on the scoresheet in Thursday's 4-1 win over Chicago.

Grabner's six shots matched his total from Arizona's first five games, but he's still sitting on just one point -- an assist -- for the season. The three-time 25-goal scorer signed a three-year deal to move to the desert this offseason, but he's unlikely to sniff that goal total on his offensively challenged new team.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Heading to Arizona on three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner inked a three-year, $10.05 million contract with the Coyotes, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Despite scoring just two goals and five points in 21 regular-season games with the Devils last season, Grabner remained one of the best goal scorers on the market this offseason. Prior to being traded by the Rangers, he netted 25 goals in 59 games along with 27 the year before. The 30-year-old winger will look to post another 20-goal season in a top-six role with Arizona during the 2018-19 campaign.

Devils' Michael Grabner: Poor fit in New Jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner accumulated 27 goals and nine assists in 80 games between the Rangers and Devils in 2017-18.

The speedy winger only collected five points in 21 games with the Devils, and his shooting percentage sunk from a career-high 19.1 percent rate as a Ranger all the way down to a 5.6 mark playing for New Jersey. Grabner was even scratched for the final three games of the conference quarterfinals versus the Lightning, so the writing is on the wall that the Eastern Conference club will let him walk as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Devils' Michael Grabner: Gets game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored a shorthanded goal that stood up as the winner in Saturday's 3-0 win over Los Angeles.

Finally -- this is the Grabner we knew from the Rangers. He now has three points, including two goals, in his last two games. Grabner's value should rise now that he's figured out how to score in Jersey.
