Grabovski has moved from the second line to the third line.
Since scoring a hattrick in the season opener, Grabovski has not scored a goal since. He had five points in the first two games, but just one assist in the last five games. Grabo will skate with Jason Chimera and Joel Ward.
Grabovski registered a hat-trick and added an assist in his Capitals debut.
Grabovski looked great in his first game as a Capital. He was featured on their second line and first power-play where he did most of his damage (2 PPG and 3 PPP). It is only the first game, but if Grabovski is available in your league, he would be worth adding.
Washington’s big free agent signing isn’t in camp yet, and the club isn’t sure when he’ll be.
Mikhail Grabovski, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Caps after being bought out by the Leafs, is stuck in Toronto trying to sort out visa issues preventing him from joining his new team in Arlington, Va.
Told #Capitals still waiting for confirmation that Grabovski has accepted their offer but all is pointing in that direction.
Grabovski was bought out by the Leafs this offseason after posting 9 goals and 7 assists in all 48 games. Moving into what should be a high power offense gives him an opportunity to turn it around this season.
The move comes as a bit of a surprise as Grabovski was arguably the Leafs' top Center if Bozak departed. However, it appears more likely that Garbo will find a new home and Bozak could stay put in Toronto.
Mikhail Grabovski is on the ice with the #leafs. Doctors in New York didn't find any problems with him.
Grabo didn't practice because he was undergoing tests on his stomach in New York. He continues to lose ice-time and has become a zombie in fantasy. He was a 50-point scorer just a year ago but has just 15 points in 40 games this season. He has posted just two assists in his last eight games.
I'm told Mikhail Grabovski is dealing with a health issue. It is not considered serious.
Grabovski did not skate this morning because he is getting tests done on a stomach issue he has been dealing with. He has been dropping in the Maple Leafs depth chart lately and has only play around 10 minutes in his last two games.
#Leafs announce forward Mikhail Grabovski has agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension.
Grabovski resigning makes a slim free agent market even slimmer. However, staying in Toronto should keep his fantasy hockey value in the same range. The second-line center scored 20 goals and 45 points in 59 games.
