Ducks' Derek Grant: Returns to Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant signed a three-year, $4.5 million contract with the Ducks on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

The Ducks traded Grant to the Flyers at the deadline last season, but the 30-year-old center will return to Anaheim. He piled up 14 goals and six assists over 49 games with the team last season and will likely serve in a bottom-six role once again with centers Ryan Getzlaf, Adam Henrique and Sam Steel returning to the team.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Gathers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant managed an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens in Game 6.

Grant had the primary helper on Kevin Hayes' first-period tally. Offense isn't a huge part of Grant's game -- he has just two assists in nine playoff appearances this year. He's added nine hits and 11 shots on goal while skating in a bottom-six role.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Notches assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant collected an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-1 round-robin win over the Lightning.

Grant helped out on a Nicolas Aube-Kubel goal 7:40 into the first period. The 30-year-old Grant had 25 points, 94 shots on goal and 30 PIM in 56 games between the Flyers and Ducks this year. He'll likely fill a bottom-six role in the playoffs, as well as picking up some penalty-killing duties.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Experiencing breakout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant had 15 goals and 25 points with a plus-1 rating and 94 shots on net in 56 games with the Ducks and Flyers prior to the NHL suspending the season in March.

The 29-year-old tallied a career-high 14 goals and 20 points in 49 games with the Ducks. Then in seven contests with the Flyers prior to the league's pause, he posted a goal and four assists, giving him a career best in points. Grant also has a career-high 30 PIM and 94 shots this season.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Fitting in with new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant collected two assists and four hits in a 5-2 win over Washington on Wednesday.

A trade deadline acquisition from Anaheim, Grant went scoreless in his first two games with his new club but has broken out with two points in each of his last two outings. Wednesday's two assists gave the 29-year-old 24 points on the year, matching the career high he established in 2017-18 for the Ducks. Grant is currently centering Philadelphia's third line with James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Pitlick, a trio that has a chance to be a solid two-way unit down the stretch.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Nabs first points as Flyer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

After going scoreless in his first two games with Philly, the 29-year-old journeyman ended up making a big impact in this one -- his second-period tally not only proved to be the game-winner, it was the only even-strength goal either squad scored on the afternoon (his earlier helper came short-handed). Grant also set a new career high in the process, scoring his 15th goal of the season, although he has only 22 points in 52 games split between the Flyers and Ducks.

Flyers' Derek Grant: Added at deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant was acquired by the Flyers from the Ducks in exchange for Kyle Criscuolo and a 2020 fourth-round pick Monday, Frank Seravalli of reports.

Grant was set to be moved after being held out versus Vegas on Sunday. The natural center could move to the wing and will bolster the Flyers' bottom six, though he may start off as the fourth-line center. The team also acquired Nate Thompson on Monday as it looks to make a postseason run.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant is not in Sunday's lineup against Vegas for "precautionary reasons," Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Grant's name has floated around on the trade market a bit lately, and while a trade doesn't appear to be imminent, Anaheim will keep him in the press box just in case. The 29-year-old forward has 14 goals and 20 points in 49 games this season.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Power-play goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored on the power play during Sunday's 5-1 win over Vancouver, adding an assist to finish the game with two points.

For the third time in five games, Grant lit the lamp, giving the fourth-line forward 14 goals in 46 contests. Playing 1:55 on the power play after he saw 2:59 in Anaheim's previous contest, Grant's increased role is noteworthy from a fantasy perspective.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Responsible for game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

Grant put the Ducks ahead 2-0 with his tally at 2:33 of the second period. With 11 goals and 16 points in 40 games, Grant is just one marker shy of his career high. He's added 65 shots, 36 hits and 26 PIM as one of the more productive fourth-liners in the league.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Delivers pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant recorded two assists, including one while shorthanded, in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

Grant set up second-period tallies by Hampus Lindholm and Carter Rowney. The 29-year-old center has been a modest surprise with 15 points in 38 games to eclipse his production from 56 appearances last season. Four of Grant's points this season have come while penalty killing. His career-high output is 12 goals and 12 helpers in 2017-18, which he has an outside chance of matching this year.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Pots SHG in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (shoulder) scored a shorthanded goal and had a team-leading five shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Predators. He also went 8-for-12 (66.7 percent) in the faceoff circle.

Making his return from a shoulder injury suffered Dec. 17, Grant wasted no time asserting himself. His five shots on goal led the Ducks, and he struck for his third shorthanded goal of the season midway through the third period. It was Grant's 10th goal in 35 games, leaving him two away from matching his career high from 2017-18. He's doesn't offer any fantasy value but has been a nice bottom-six piece for Anaheim.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve and will play in Thursday's game against Nashville.

Grant has missed almost a month while dealing with an AC joint injury, and he's racked up nine goals and 12 points in 34 games this year. Now healthy, the 29-year-old will enter the lineup as the team's fourth-line center Thursday.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Could play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup with Nashville, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Grant has been sidelined for nearly a month with a sprained AC joint, so even if he's able to go against the Predators, his ice time will likely be limited. Confirmation on the 29-year-old pivot's availability should surface once the Ducks take the ice for pregame warmups.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant will miss 4-to-6 weeks after sustaining a sprained AC joint.

Grant may have suffered this injury during Tuesday's loss to the Flyers. The Ducks recalled Max Jones and Isac Lundestrom to help fill in since Troy Terry (knee) is facing a 10-week absence as well. The four-week timeline would have Grant returning right before the All-Star break, but it sounds more likely he banks additional rest and returns following the break. The veteran forward will be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Tallies lone goal on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored a power-play goal on four shots, dished two hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Kings.

Grant sparked the Ducks to life in the third period with his goal, but they were unable to tie the game. Grant has been a surprising source of depth scoring with nine goals and three helpers in 32 games this season. The 29-year-old fourth-liner has added 49 shots on goal, 27 hits and 24 PIM, which is a little extra value in the non-scoring categories. His tally was his first power-play point since 2017-18 -- he rarely sees much time with a man advantage.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Starts and ends scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored a pair of goals on five shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Grant has tallied eight goals this season, but five have come in two separate games. He scores in bunches, and now has 11 points and 42 shots on goal in 28 appearances. The fourth-liner may be of fantasy interest to owners in deeper formats, but he has just 19 hits and 16 blocked shots this season.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Earns first career hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant posted a hat trick, six shots on goal, a plus-3 rating and two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blues.

Grant gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead in the first period, then scored a shorthanded tally in the second and secured the win with an empty-netter set up by Ryan Getzlaf in the third. Not bad for a player who had 18 goals in 228 career games prior to Saturday's outburst. Grant now has five goals and eight points through 21 games. Don't rush to add the 29-year-old in fantasy -- big offensive efforts are rare for the fourth-liner.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Multi-point effort Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant scored the game-winning goal and added an assist, four shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Jets.

While the top-six kept the Ducks in the contest, Grant's fourth-line unit helped secure the result at the end. Grant scored at 9:10 of the second period for the ultimately decisive goal, then set up an insurance tally by Carter Rowney in the third. This was just the second game-winning goal of Grant's career. In 14 games this year, the 29-year-old has two goals and five points.

Ducks' Derek Grant: Snaps eight-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant registered an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

Grant's usage on the fourth line makes offensive opportunities few and far between. He is up to three points in 12 appearances this season, to go with 18 shots on goal, eight hits and seven blocked shots. He's safe to leave on the waiver wire.
