Granlund scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3.
Granlund had registered only three assists in his previous 14 games before finally breaking the goal drought. He's struggled to adjust to life with the Predators, making it hard to recommend the Finnish forward for fantasy purposes.
Granlund assisted on both Predators goals in a 3-2 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.
The goals came 58 seconds apart late in the third period, and both were scored by Filip Forsberg in an attempt at a comeback. Granlund is beginning to gel with his new teammates, with four points in five games as a Predator. He's up to 53 points in 68 games as a whole, with 20 of those coming with a man advantage.
Granlund potted a goal in a 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Granlund has two points in four games since being traded to Nashville on Feb. 25, as well as nine hits in that span. He only had 28 hits across 63 games with the Wild, so it's unlikely the skilled forward will keep up the physical pace. Granlund has 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 67 appearances this year, and he filled in for Filip Forsberg (upper body) on the top line in this contest.
Granlund notched an assist in a 5-3 loss to the Jets on Friday.
The versatile forward welcomed a child at the start of the week and ended the week with 50 points in 64 games between the Wild and Predators this season. He may need some time to adjust to his new environment, but Granlund remains a valuable fantasy play and should help Nashville's 18th-ranked offense of 2.94 goals per game.
Granlund will make his debut for the Predators in Friday's clash with Winnipeg.
Between traveling from Minnesota and the birth of his child, Granlund has been unable to suit up for the team since being acquired at the trade deadline. The center figures to slot into a top-six role and should also be a factor on the power play.
Predators general manager David Poile has not yet decided when Granlund (personal) will make his Predators debut, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.
Granlund and his fiancee are expecting a child any day, so the Predators' new winger may be delayed in making his much-anticipated debut with Nashville. The 26-year-old brings some needed offense to his new club after scoring 15 goals and posting 49 points in 68 games this season. Following back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday, the Preds are off until Friday, which gives Granlund and his family plenty of time to sort out what is undoubtedly a hectic and chaotic situation.
The Wild traded Granlund to the Predators in exchange for Kevin Fiala on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
This is a swap of two forwards, but Granlund is the much more refined option at this point in time. Minnesota has seen immediate dividends from its trade with Boston for Ryan Donato -- who has a goal and three helpers since joining the Wild last Thursday -- and that will help mitigate the loss of Granlund, whose hefty $5.275 million AAV contract doesn't expire until after the 2019-20 campaign. Granlund figures to establish greater consistency on the contending club, but there are more mouths to feed on a Nashville squad that won the Presidents' Trophy in 2018.
Granlund scored a goal and added an assist on the power play in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils.
His 14th tally of the season gave the Wild a seemingly comfortable 4-1 lead midway through the second period, but the wheels came off for the team after that. Granlund now has two goals and nine points in the last nine games, and he's on pace for his third straight season with at least 20 goals and 65 points.
Granlund scored his team's only goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders.
The power-play marker was Granlund's first goal since Jan. 7. He's now scored 13 times and has 45 points in 56 games this season. On Sunday, he led all Minnesota forwards with 22:32 of ice time and finished with a minus-1 rating.
Granlund earned two power-play assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.
The Avalanche are the superior offensive team by a longshot, but Minnesota was successful on two of six power-play opportunities to flip the script in this one. Granlund continues to thrive in that key special teams situation, amassing 13 points through 50 games, though he's also jiving to the tune of 11 goals and 17 assists at even strength. Strategize using Granlund around the idea that Minnesota may be overlooked as a team that generally struggles in the attacking zone.
Granlund failed to record a point in Monday's win over the Golden Knights.
Gralnlund fired out of the gate with 12 goals and 39 points in the first 41 games, but now he finds himself on an eight-game pointless streak. He's still getting plenty of opportunities with 21 shots on goal and substantial power-play minutes in that span. The 26-year-old will look to break his recent slump in Wednesday's game versus the Avalanche to avoid entering the All-Star break with a bitter taste in his mouth.
Granlund scored his 12th goal of the season in Monday's 1-0 win over the Canadiens.
While it was Granlund who put the shot home early in the third period for his fourth game-winner of the season, full credit should go to Montreal defenseman Jeff Petry, who not only handed Granlund the puck on a reckless behind-the-back pass attempt as he circled his own net, but then came back and blocked out Carey Price as he tried to make the save. The marker ended a 15-game goalless drought for Granlund, but the 26-year-old remains on pace for a breakout campaign with 39 points through 41 games.
Granlund had an assist in a 2-1 loss to the Stars on Saturday, giving him 10 assists in his last 10 games.
That's impressive, but of course the fact he doesn't have any goals in December is also notable on the negative side of the ledger. In fact, he only has one goal in his last 18 games. However, despite that, he has 11 goals on the season, so it feels like more of a rough patch than an indictment of his skills.
Granlund finished Tuesday's 7-1 win over Montreal with three assists.
The 26-year-old Finn has been a point machine so far this season, scoring 11 goals to go along with 20 assists in 30 games. Granlund continues to play at a point-per-game pace in 2018-19, notching seven assists in his last five contests. Making things even better, two of his three helpers Tuesday came with the man advantage, giving Granlund 11 power-play points on the year.
Granlund dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Both of Granlund's assists came on the power play less than a minute away from each other. It's his second straight two-assist game, and Granlund now has 28 points in 26 games, setting him on pace for a career year.
Granlund picked up two assists Saturday in a 5-3 loss to Toronto.
Granlund has delivered consecutive seasons of high-60s point totals, but this year, he's charting a point-per-game course. Granlund is a mandatory play. Period.
Granlund scored a goal on one of his six shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Granlund opened the scoring 7:46 in, snapping a seven-game goal drought. His six shots also tied a season high, as Granlund continues to roll offensively. The Finnish forward mustered five helpers during that seven-game goal skid and has 24 points in the last 22 games.

Granlund's third-period tally was his 10th of the season, and the Finn remains Minnesota's leading point-getter with 18. Don't forget about Granny when it's time to set your fantasy lineup.
Granlund scored a pair of goals and added an assist in a 5-1 victory against the Ducks on Friday.
The 26-year-old didn't score in the first three games of the season, but since then, he's tallied at least one point in 12 of the last 13 contests. Granlund is averaging more than a point per game with nine goals and 17 points this season, and he's recorded all that in the last 13 contests. It's still early, but he appears primed to pass his career bests of 26 goals and 69 points from two seasons ago.
