Illness Keeps Isles' Grabner Out Saturday

News: Michael Grabner is nursing an illness and will not be available Saturday against the Ducks, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner was a candidate to get back in the lineup Saturday after a slew of healthy scratches, but it appears the illness cropped up at an inconvenient time. It's possible that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Red Wings if he notices enough improvement with his condition by the morning.

Isles' Grabner Expected To Be Scratched Tuesday

News: Michael Grabner is expected to serve as a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Rangers, NHL.com's David Satriano reports.
Analysis: The return of Kyle Okposo (detached retina) from a 22-game absence will force the Isles to bump a winger from their lineup, and it looks like it will be Michael Grabner, who skated with the Isles' other expected scratches Tuesday morning. Grabner has been a capable, if unspectacular producer as a member of the team's second or third line this season, generating seven goals and 12 points over 29 games.

Isles' Grabner Grabs Two Helpers

News: Michael Grabner registered a pair of assists, went plus-2 and recorded a stunning six takeaways Thursday against the Predators.
Analysis: The Preds played a sloppy game, and Michael Grabner and the Islanders took advantage repeatedly. That's points in two consecutive games and a plus-4 rating for the winger since his return from an upper-body ailment that kept him out for a week-plus. But he's had an awful tough time staying in the lineup this year.

Isles' Grabner Activated From IR

News: Michael Grabner (upper body) was activated off of injured reserve Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Michael Grabner will take over the roster spot vacated by Casey Cizikas, who was placed on IR himself Tuesday with a lower-body injury. The Austrian winger is fully expected to play versus the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Grabner Not Ready To Return For The Islanders

News: Michael Grabner (upper body) isn't quite ready to come off injured reserve for the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Michael Grabner may have a problem getting back into the lineup even when he's healthy, as coach Jack Capuano may be hesitant to sit someone while the team is on a winning streak. Capuano has used this logic in the past while sitting Lubomir Visnovsky and Calvin de Haan.

Grabner Skates With Islanders Tuesday

News: Michael Grabner (undisclosed) skated with the team Tuesday, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Although Michael Grabner was placed on IR, that might have reflected the Isles' need for healthy bodies on the roster rather than the seriousness of his injury. Grabner could be back as soon as he is eligible next Monday.

Isles Place Grabner On Injured Reserve

News: Michael Grabner was placed on injured reserve by the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner's injury likely occurred in Saturday's game against the Bruins in which he was limited to 9:55 of ice time. He will first be eligible to return next Saturday against the Blue Jackets, but the team recalled both Harry Zolnierczyk and Colin McDonald on an emergency basis Sunday.

Isles' Grabner Pots Fifth In Loss

News: Michael Grabner netted his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Michael Grabner nearly came through with his first multi-goal game of the season, but an incredible stick save by Tuukka Rask robbed him of that distinction. Even so, the Austrian winger has been a strong complementary piece to the Isles' attack over his last five games, notching three goals and an assist.

Isles' Grabner Gets Two Points In Win

News: Michael Grabner tallied a goal and an assist in Monday's 7-4 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Michael Grabner's 2014-15 campaign has largely been marred by injuries, but he's shown some encouraging signs since coming back of late, tallying four points in his last five games. He initially got his way back onto the roster after an injury to Lubomir Visnovsky, so the 27-year-old will have to continue earning playing time once he returns.

Isles' Grabner Activated Off IR

News: Michael Grabner (lower body) was activated from IR on Tuesday.
Analysis: Michael Grabner was ready to return to the team last week, but there wasn't an open spot on the roster for him at that point in time. With the news Tuesday that Lubomir Visnovsky is out with an upper-body ailment, Grabner will now get a chance to suit up with the Isles for the first time since Dec. 13. Grabner has scored two goals in five games with the Islanders this season.

Isles' Grabner Ready To Return

News: Michael Grabner (lower body) is ready to return to the team, according to Newsday.
Analysis: That's the good news, the bad news is that even though Michael Grabner is ready to return there isn't a spot on the roster right now for him. The Isles don't seem inclined to change up their starting lineup right now and no one seems to need to go on IR. Grabner may have to wait for a roster spot to open before he gets a chance to play again.

Isles' Grabner Not In Line To Play Wednesday

News: Michael Grabner (lower body) no longer appears on track to play Wednesday against the Jets, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner is skating and was believed to be trending toward an activation, but the Islanders' roster still remains full heading into Wednesday's contest. The team would have to waive or place another player on IR to facilitate the return of Grabner, and it looks like they'll opt to wait at least a few more days to do so.

Isles' Grabner Expected To Return Wednesday

News: Michael Grabner (lower body) is expected to return Wednesday to the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Michael Grabner has only played in five games so far this season due to multiple injuries but he did have a pair of goals during those contests. Grabner's speed will be a welcome addition to the Islanders once again.

Michael Grabner

Isles Place Grabner On IR

News: Michael Grabner (lower body) was moved to injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Michael Grabner was previously labeled as day-to-day with the lower-body injury, but the Islanders evidently didn't think he'd be ready to go for the next two games. His placement on IR will create an open roster spot for either Johnny Boychuk (upper body) or Travis Hamonic (upper body), both of whom are expected to be ready to play over the weekend.

Isles' Grabner Day-To-Day

News: Michael Grabner is day-to-day with a lower body injury.
Analysis: The speedy winger is injured once again, and won't play in Monday's game against the Devils. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Casey Cizikas for the time being.

Isles' Grabner: Two Goals Since Return

News: Michael Grabner tallied a goal on his lone shot attempt in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Since returning from sports hernia surgery to make his season debut Dec. 4, Michael Grabner has provided the Islanders with goals in two of his three games. Grabner will likely struggle to score which much consistency on the Isles' third line, but he should benefit from playing with better quality linemates than he enjoyed in his previous four seasons in Long Island.

Islanders Activate Grabner

News: Michael Grabner (sports hernia) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Michael Grabner was back skating on the Isles' second line at right wing, where he'll likely slot in for his season debut Thursday in Ottawa. He missed nearly two months after requiring sports hernia surgery.

Isles' Grabner Nearing A Return

News: Michael Grabner (hernia) could return to the lineup sometime this week.
Analysis: Michael Grabner has yet to play this season, but after experiencing some setbacks in the rehab process, he finally appears poised to return. He probably won't play Tuesday, but Thursday's game against the Senators or Saturday against the Blues both look like possible return dates for the speedy winger.

Isles' Grabner: Not Likely To Play By Thanksgiving

News: Michael Grabner (sports hernia) is now looking unlikely to play before Thanksgiving, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner looked like he might be activated from IR to make his season debut over the weekend, but he's apparently not progressing as the Islanders hoped at this point. The winger wasn't able to skate Saturday morning, prompting coach Jack Capuano to say that Grabner would be reevaluated Monday. Grabner contributed 12 goals and 26 points over 64 games in 2013-14, so he could represent a decent third-line option for the Islanders once he's healthy.

Isles' Grabner Traveling With Team

News: Michael Grabner (sports hernia) will travel with the team to Pittsburgh for Friday's game, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The team didn't verify that Michael Grabner would be activated from injured reserve to play Friday against the Penguins; that will be determined based on how he performs during the team's morning skate earlier that day. Grabner resumed practicing with the team Monday and seems to be very close to suiting up for his first game of the season, though he might have to first head out on an AHL conditioning assignment before suiting up for the Islanders.

Isles' Grabner Practices

News: Michael Grabner (hernia) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It was Michael Grabner's first practice with the team after undergoing offseason hernia surgery, so even though he's getting a lot closer to a return, he may need a few more practices to work on his conditioning before suiting up.

Isles' Grabner Skates

News: Michael Grabner (hernia) skated on his own prior to Monday's practice, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner has yet to suit up after having surgery to remove a hernia before the season began, but it sounds like his recovery is progressing, although he's still expected to miss the next week at least.

Isles' Grabner (Hernia) Could Skate Next Week

News: Michael Grabner (hernia) could start skating again next week, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner is less than four weeks into his four-to-six week timetable, but appears to be nearing his first step towards recovery. He will need to start practicing with the team before he can rejoin the lineup.

Isles' Grabner (Sports Hernia) Out 4-6 Weeks

News: Michael Grabner underwent sports hernia surgery Thursday and will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks, Andy Strickland of 550 KTRS reports.
Analysis: The report illustrates a more definitive recovery timetable for Michael Grabner, who had previously been placed on injured reserve Monday without much fanfare. The winger proved to be a useful depth scorer for the Islanders last season with 12 goals in 64 games, but the team probably has enough quality forwards on hand to replace his production.

Isles Move Grabner To IR

News: Michael Grabner (upper body) will start the season on IR, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner is reportedly not close to returning anytime soon, so he'll start the season on IR to open up a roster spot. The speedy winger posted 12 goals and 14 assists in 64 games last season.
