Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Lone bright spot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner tallied a goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Grabner was the only Coyote able to solve Marc-Andre Fleury in the contest. Through 38 games this year, the 32-year-old has eight goals and three helpers. He's potted only two goals in 12 appearances in December -- Grabner is as streaky as they come and can only be counted on for a handful of hot streaks each season.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Opens scoring to shake slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Grabner opened the scoring three minutes into the game when he deposited his seventh goal of the season. The goal, his first since Veteran's Day, put an end to Grabner's 13-game goal drought. The 32-year-old enjoyed back-to-back 28-goal campaigns in 2016-17 and 2017-18, but he's only managed 15 goals in 72 games since joining the Coyotes prior to last season.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Provides assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (undisclosed) notched an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers.

Grabner set up Christian Fischer's tally in the second period. Grabner had missed the previous two contests with the injury, and he returned to a fourth-line role. The winger is up to nine points and 34 shots on goal in 23 appearances.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Oilers, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Grabner had missed the last two games while dealing with the undisclosed issue, but will finally make his return to the lineup. He'll replace Lawson Crouse (upper body), who crashed into the end boards in Saturday's game against the Kings. Grabner has been solid this campaign, notching eight points in 22 games thus far.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: No-go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner (undisclosed) won't play Saturday against the Kings, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Grabner will miss a second straight game, but he's still considered day-to-day with his undisclosed issue, so he could return to the lineup as soon as Sunday against Edmonton. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface prior to puck drop against the Oilers.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rick Tocchet deemed Grabner "a little banged up" ahead of Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs and he will not play, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

Grabner's absence Thursday will mark his first of the season. He slowed down over the last four games after a five-game point streak in early November, though the veteran's eight points through 22 games this season likely leave him in DFS flier status and only owned in the deepest of fantasy leagues. Barrett Hayton will replace him in the lineup Thursday and will presumably slot in on the fourth line.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Points in four straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner scored a goal on his lone shot and had three hits in a 4-3 loss to the Wild on Saturday.

Grabner opened the scoring nine minutes into the game for his fifth goal of the season. It extended his point streak to four games, during which time he has two goals and four points. Grabner appears to be settling in after opening the season with just one goal in his first eight games. The 32-year-old had just nine goals in 41 games last season, but totaled 52 goals over his previous two seasons with the Rangers. If he's healthy in 2019-20, it's entirely possible he returns to his 25-goal form.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Produces apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner registered an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

That's three points in his last three games and six in 16 contests overall this year. Grabner is good for a couple of point binges a year, and all signs are pointing to his current hot run being one of them. Fantasy owners in deeper formats may want to take notice before he cools off.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: First helper of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner managed an assist and three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

Grabner's helper came on a Vinnie Hinostroza goal in the third period, which made it 3-1 for the Coyotes at the time. Grabner now has five points and 23 shots through 15 games this year. The speedy Austrian is typically streaky on offense, but with points in consecutive outings, he may be about to go hot for a bit.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Dents twine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner netted a goal on two shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

Grabner gained the puck in the neutral zone and used his speed down the left wing before snapping the puck past Mikko Koskinen to get the Coyotes on the board. The winger is up to four goals on 20 shots in 14 games this season. As usual, he's not much of a provider, which limits his fantasy value significantly.

Coyotes' Michael Grabner: Finding his game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grabner has scored in back-to-back games.

With goals in back-to-back contests, Grabner appears to be finding his game after a sluggish start to the 2019-20 season. Long known to be a streaky player, the 32-year-old could be a solid depth add in fantasy, but Grabner's lack of consistency makes him a risky fantasy play most nights.

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

Grabner scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Grabner's first goal of the year made it a 2-1 deficit for the Coyotes in the third period. The 32-year-old winger is a speedy player, and he's topped 20 goals four times in his career. Last year, the Austrian winger had nine goals and 16 points in 41 games, but six of those tallies came shorthanded. Despite his fourth-line deployment, Grabner could be a valuable depth scorer for fantasy owners, especially in formats where shorthanded points are counted.

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 NHL.com 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.
