The Islanders have placed Mikhail Grabovski (upper-body) on IR.
Grabovski appeared to suffer an apparent head injury on a hit early in last night’s win over the Predators. He stayed down after a heavy hit and the immediate speculation is that Grabo suffered a concussion, but the exact nature of the injury has not been released by the team.
Grabovski (lower-body) will be back in the Islanders lineup on Tuesday.
Grabovski missed the last five games with a lower-body injury, but will be back in tonight vs. the Rangers. He is expected to replace Kyle Okposo on the Islanders’ top-line with Josh Bailey and John Tavares. Grabovski has registered six goals and eight assists (14 points) in 38 games.
The Islanders will go with the same lineup as they used on Saturday, so that means that Grabovski will miss a second straight game with a lower-body injury. He is day-to-day, monitor his status leading up to Friday’s game vs. Pittsburgh.
