  • Penguins' Derek Grant: Inks one-year deal with Penguins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/19/18) Grant signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Penguins on Thursday.

    Grant should compete for an Opening Night roster spot with Pittsburgh after posting a breakout season of sorts with the Ducks in 2017-18. The 28-year-old pivot notched career-high marks with 66 games played, 12 goals scored and 12 assists, and could be in line for another productive campaign with a talented Pens squad should he find consistent ice time.

    Ducks' Derek Grant: Upcoming free agent

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/18) Grant, who set career highs in goals (12) and assists (12) in 2017-18, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Grant enjoyed his best year as a pro this campaign, but that isn't saying much, as the 28-year-old pivot's previous career high in points was a meager four in 2016-17. The 2008 fourth-round pick is nothing but a rotational bottom-six contributor at this stage in his career, so there's no need for fantasy owners to have him on their radars.

    Ducks' Derek Grant: Dishes two assists in 6-3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/18) Grant recorded two assists during Sunday's 6-3 win over Chicago.

    While Grant has now collected four assists through his past four games, he continues to skate in a depth role and was even a healthy scratch Feb. 24 against Arizona. As a result, it's unlikely he's able to provide serviceable fantasy numbers in many settings moving forward. However, it appears that he's leapfrogged Antoine Vermette as the fourth center on the depth chart.

    Ducks' Derek Grant: Draws in against Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/18) Grant logged a team-low 6:37 of ice time during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sabres.

    With Anaheim playing its second road game in consecutive nights, Grant drew into the lineup and Antoine Vermette watched from the press box. There was hardly a fantasy ripple, though. Grant recorded a single shot over nine shifts, and it wouldn't be surprising if he returned to being a healthy scratch in short order.

    Ducks' Derek Grant: Role in major decline

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/18) Grant was a healthy scratch for the fourth time in nine games against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, and he's averaged just 7:49 of ice time through the five contests he's suited up for.

    The 27-year-old forward was playing meaningful minutes earlier this season when the Ducks were riddled with injuries throughout their lineup. However, the team is now almost at full health, so Grant has been watching from the press box or playing sparingly in a depth role. As a result, there's currently no reason to count on him in most fantasy settings.
