Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Scoring drought continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi extended his current pointless streak to nine games in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers, giving him just four points in 19 games this season.

Grimaldi's game looked to be on the upswing coming into this season after he cracked the 30-point mark last year with 10 goals and 21 assists in 66 games. The way things are going, however, he'll be lucky to hit double digits given his current pace. He's a lower-tier fantasy option in most formats, so feel free to look for a suitable replacement.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Lights lamp late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi logged a goal on two shots in a 4-2 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday.

Grimaldi closed out the scoring in the final minute of regulation with a nice individual effort. The 27-year-old burst up the left side and quickly went from backhand to forehand for his third goal of the season. Slotted in on Nashville's fourth line, Grimaldi received just 11 minutes of ice time.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: First goal in six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal on three shots in a 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Grimaldi opened the scoring with a terrific snipe 4:43 into the game, making a quick cut in the left circle and wiring one top-shelf for his second goal of the year. The 27-year-old generally fills a bottom-six role for the Nashville -- he skated on the fourth line Tuesday -- but is capable of making skilled plays offensively. However, his limited real-life role caps negates any possible fantasy upside.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Nets first goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal on his lone shot Saturday in a 5-2 win over Columbus.

Grimaldi got the Predators on the board with a pretty goal midway through the first period. He jumped on a loose puck in the defensive zone and went coast to coast along the right side before finding the net with a quick slapper from the right dot. It was the first goal of the season for the 27-year-old, who has established himself as a bottom-six regular in Nashville after abbreviated showings with Florida and Colorado.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Delivers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi posted an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers.

Grimaldi ended a four-game dry spell with his helper in the second period. He's got career-bests in goals (10), points (31), plus-minus (plus-10), and shots (117) through 62 contests this year. The 27-year-old winger isn't overly physical though -- his value in most standard fantasy formats is very limited.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Signs on for two more years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi signed a two-year, $4 million extension with the Predators on Monday.

The 27-year-old forward has been a bit of a late bloomer, but he's established himself this season with 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) over 58 games. Grimaldi has proven he can be a placeholder in the top six, although he's floated around the lineup this year. This deal will lock him down through the 2021-22 campaign.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi had a goal, an assist and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Islanders.

Grimaldi continues adding to his point total, with his two points Thursday bringing him up to 28 in 53 games. The Predators' forward, for the first time in his career, will finish a campaign with double-digit goals. Despite hitting a positive milestone in this one, Grimaldi remains a fantasy liability in most matchups.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Contributes helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi gathered an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Jets.

Grimaldi had the lone helper on Nick Bonino's first-period tally. The winger's career-best season continued -- he's at 26 points, 92 shots and a plus-10 rating in 49 games this year. Grimaldi has just 20 hits and eight PIM, so he's not going to add much physicality, but the scoring is enough to be worth a look in deeper formats.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Second straight multi-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi netted a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Ducks.

Grimaldi was key to the Predators' third-period comeback with an assist on Craig Smith's tally before potting the equalizer himself. He led the team with seven shots on goal. Grimaldi is up to 22 points and 69 shots through 38 contests this season. While he remains in a third-line role, the 26-year-old is setting himself up for a strong second half.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Reaches 20-point plateau
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

Grimaldi and Craig Smith assisted on each other's goals in the contest. Entering Saturday, Grimaldi had just a single assist in his last five outings. The 26-year-old has a career-best 20 points (seven scores, 13 helpers) through 37 games this year. He's still in a bottom-six role, but Grimaldi can provide depth scoring both on the ice and in fantasy.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Scores in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal on his only shot in an 8-3 win over the Islanders on Tuesday.

Grimaldi scored late in the second period to give the Predators a 5-3 lead. It was his fifth goal of the season in 30 games, already matching the career-high five he scored all of last season (53 games). The 26-year-old speedster is on pace for 40-plus points after entering the season with 23 career points in 90 NHL games.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Delivers two points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi tallied a goal on three shots, added an assist and went plus-4 in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Devils.

Grimaldi had one of his best performances of the season. He set up Yakov Trenin to make it 3-2 for the Predators in the second period. Grimaldi then capped the scoring at 12:44 of the third. The 26-year-old set a new career high with 14 points through 25 contests this season. It's a late bloom for the second-round pick from 2011, but he could push for 30 points by the end of the year.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Rushes for breakaway goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal in Friday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes.

Grimaldi got on the end of a long pass from Nick Bonino, then beat Petr Mrazek with the shot for the opening tally. The 26-year-old winger is quietly on a three-game point streak (one goal, two helpers). He's amassed 12 points and 31 shots on goal in 22 games this season from a bottom-six role.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Bags apple in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi collected an assist during Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Jets.

Grimaldi has now gone 11 games without a goal, but he does have eight assists through 17 games this season. Playing in a limited, bottom-six role with Nashville, the 26-year-old winger does not carry a ton of fantasy value for the 2019-20 season. Grimaldi's career-high for points in a season came during the 2018-19 campaign when he finished the year with 13 points.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Adds to modest point total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi snapped a three-game scoring slump with an assist in Thursday's 9-4 loss to the Avalanche.

Now with eight points in 13 contests, Grimaldi looks like a sure bet to surpass the 13 points he scored last year in his rookie season with the Preds. His fantasy upside remains limited, however, as he continues to skate on the team's third line with Nick Bonino and Craig Smith, with an average TOI of just 11:36.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: A hat trick of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi had three assists and was plus-3 with two shots on goal in a 3-0 win over Chicago on Tuesday.

Grimaldi assisted on all three Nashville goals as he and linemates Nick Bonino (3g) and Craig Smith (2a) single-handedly destroyed the Blackhawks. Grimaldi's three-assist night was all the more impressive considering he logged only 9:40 of ice time and none of it on special teams. The 26-year-old seems to have found a home in Nashville and is off to the best start of his NHL career with a goal and six assists in nine games this season.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Pots first goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

The winger's tally made it 3-0 just 35 seconds into the second period. Grimaldi has three points through six games this season, while firing 13 shots on goal. He faces an uphill battle to get on the scoresheet consistently given his bottom-six usage, but the early returns are encouraging.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Assist in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi (lower body) posted an assist and two shots while skating 12:51 in a 5-2 win over the Golden Knights on Tuesday.

Grimaldi missed two games with the issue, but picked up his second assist of the season on Kyle Turris' opening goal in the first period. The 26-year-old is looking to keep a consistent spot in the lineup for the Predators after registering 13 points in 53 games last season.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi (lower body) is in the projected lineup for Tuesday's game against the Golden Knights,'s Thomas Willis reports.

Grimaldi skated on Nashville's fourth line during practice Monday, which was the first indication that he'd likely be available against Vegas. The 26-year-old forward has tallied one assist while averaging 11:24 of ice time in three appearances this season.

Predators' Rocco Grimaldi: May return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimaldi (lower body) skated on the fourth line in Monday's practice, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Grimaldi has missed the last two contests but was considered day-to-day prior to both of them. His presence at practice indicates he should be good to go sooner rather than later. Expect Grimaldo to return to his bottom-six role Tuesday in Vegas or Thursday in Arizona.
