Isles' Grabner Likely Finished This Year

News: Michael Grabner (upper body) and the Isles' other injured players won't return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: While Staple's Jack Capuano quote didn't directly mention Michael Grabner, he's essentially been out a month and there'd be little benefit in rushing him back onto the ice for the last couple games of the year even if it were possible.

Isles' Grabner Will Not Play Sunday

News: Michael Grabner (upper body) will not play Sunday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Michael Grabner's return to the Islanders' lineup from a concussion lasted just one game, as the forward picked up an assist Saturday against the Capitals before departing with a new upper-body injury. If this injury proves to be a recurrence of his concussion symptoms, Grabner would more than likely be shut down for the rest of the season.

Islanders' Grabner Could Return Saturday

News: Michael Grabner (concussion) practiced Friday and could rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Long Island Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner hasn't played since March 10, but the Islanders have been surprisingly feisty and clearly aren't packing things in. The 26-year-old winger seems to be making progress and should return before the end of the season, if not Saturday.

Isles' Grabner Suffers New Injury

News: Michael Grabner was able to return Saturday from his concussion but then suffered an upper-body injury and was forced to leave the game, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Michael Grabner had missed the previous nine games due to the concussion and it is unknown if he has suffered more symptoms related to the head trauma or if this is a new injury. The Islanders aren't going to the playoffs and with only a little over a week left in the regular season it's safe to wonder if his season is over. Assuming this is true, Grabner will have finished with 12 goals and 25 points in 63 games.

Isles' Grabner Out With Concussion

News: Michael Grabner suffered a concussion Tuesday against the Canucks.
Analysis: There is currently no timetable for his return, so it's probably safest to consider him week-to-week for now. The winger has 12 goals and 13 assists in 63 games this season, but will likely be moved to IR as the Islanders are expected to call up a replacement from AHL Bridgeport.

Isles Lose Grabner

News: Michael Grabner left Monday's win over Vancouver with an upper-body injury late in the second period, according to Newsday. The forward did not return.
Analysis: Michael Grabner, who suffered the injury when he collided with Vancouver's Chris Tanev, missed out on all the fun in the third period, when the team put up a franchise-tying seven goals in the frame. He'll be evaluated in the next day or two, so we should know his status for Friday's home game against the Sharks fairly soon.

Grabner's Goal, Assist Lift Isles

News: Michael Grabner scored the game-winning goal in overtime and also collected an assist in Tuesday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: After an impressive Olympics in which he totaled five goals and six points in four games for Austria, Michael Grabner's returned to NHL action with strong results, netting four points in four games since the resumption of play. His arrow is pointing up.

Isles' Grabner Adds Two Goals To Ledger

News: Michael Grabner potted two shorthanded goals in the Islanders' surprise win over the Maple Leafs on Thursday.
Analysis: After a solid performance for Austria during the Olympics, Michael Grabner didn't slow down one iota in his return to NHL action. The two shorthanded scores came only 48 seconds apart, with Grabner taking advantage of an ill-advised pass by goalie Jonathan Bernier to score an easy empty-netter on the second tally. Fantasy owners should to roll Grabner with confidence while he continues to score at will.

Isles' Grabner Leads Austria Past Norway

News: Michael Grabner scored twice and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 3-1 win over Norway, giving him five tallies in three games in the Olympics. The Austrians finished the preliminary round 1-2, and will find out later in the day which nation they'll face in the first elimination round.
Analysis: As Michael Grabner himself noted, he's scoring much faster against Olympic competition than he has this season in the NHL: "I didn't score as many goals over there [with the Islanders] as I want yet. It's nice to get some here, and maybe get the confidence when I go back."

Isles' Grabner Notches Hat Trick For Austria

News: Michael Grabner scored a hat trick in his Olympic debut for Austria in their 8-4 loss to Finland on Thursday.
Analysis: One of only a handful of NHL players on the Austrian roster, Michael Grabner did well to ensure the team wasn't completely embarrassed by Finland. He scored 36 seconds into the game to stake the Austrians to an early lead before the Fins eventually put the game out of reach. With Canada up next on the schedule, Grabner and the Austrians don't stand a very good chance of advancing past pool play.

Isles' Grabner Adds Two Points In Loss

News: Michael Grabner potted a goal and picked up an assist in Monday's loss to the Bruins. He finished the game with a plus-3 rating.
Analysis: Michael Grabner's plus-3 mark was the highest of the game for the Islanders, a fairly surprising development since the team would go on to lose by three goals. Aside from a two-point performance Thursday against the Penguins, Grabner had been rather quiet heading into Monday's game, with just one point in his previous seven contests.

Grabner Notches Two Points As Isles Fall

News: Michael Grabner scored a goal, adding an assist and a plus-1 rating, but it wasn't enough in a 6-4 loss to the Penguins on Thursday.
Analysis: The goal ended a six-game scoreless slump for Michael Grabner, who'd only collected a single lonely assist to go with a minus-4 in that span. His goal-scoring upside is undeniable and that ugly .075 shooting percentage is bound to come up eventually, but he's been a very low-end fantasy asset so far this year, especially considering his near-total lack of power-play time.

Isles' Grabner Scores OT Game-Winner Friday

News: Michael Grabner scored the game-winning goal just 1:46 into overtime as the Islanders beat the Avalanche 2-1 on Friday.
Analysis: The Islanders took control of the puck fairly quickly into the overtime period and fed Michael Grabner in the slot for the game-winner. The goal was his seventh of the season and he now has three points (two goals and one assist) in his last two games.

Isles' Grabner Snaps Slump

News: Michael Grabner ended a five-game pointless slump with a goal and an assist in Tuesday's win over Toronto.
Analysis: The goal was just his sixth of the year -- quite the far cry from the 34 he potted back in 2010-11. He did skate nearly 17 minutes in this one, the most ice time he's seen since back on Dec. 17, but Michael Grabner continues to be a highly inconsistent fantasy option.

Isles' Grabner Back In Lineup

News: Michael Grabner (illness) will play Tuesday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Now back to full strength after missing Sunday's game due to illness, Michael Grabner will reenter the lineup in place of Eric Boulton.

Isles' Grabner Practices Monday

News: Michael Grabner (flu) was on the ice for practice Monday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Michael Grabner should be good to go for New Year's Eve versus the Bruins but coach Jack Capuano could be hesitant to insert him back in the lineup after the Islander victory over the Wild on Sunday.

Isles Grabner Out For Sunday

News: Michael Grabner will miss the game Sunday due to an illness, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Michael Grabner has actually been hot of late after going some 30 games without a goal. He is not expected to be out of the lineup for more than a game or two.

Grabner Scores Twice In Isles' Win

News: Michael Grabner scored twice in Friday's win over the Rangers, his first goal since the opening night of the season.
Analysis: There haven't been many players as invisible as Michael Grabner this season. After snagging eight points through the first seven games, he hadn't registered a point since October 17. When Grabner is on his game, he's a quietly productive player but this season has been ridiculous in how little he has seen his name on the scoresheet. Give him a look in deep leagues, as it's not often a former 30-goal scorer is kicking around on waivers.

Isles' Grabner Reenters Lineup

News: Michael Grabner will be back in the lineup Friday vs. the Penguins, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner was a healthy scratch in the Isles' most recent game Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs after failing to score a point in his previous 11 games. Coach Jack Capuano will slot Grabner back in on the second line Friday with the hope that the game off will help him rediscover his scoring touch.

Isles Make Grabner A Healthy Scratch Tuesday

News: Michael Grabner will be a healthy scratch Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Since returning from his two-game suspension in late October, Michael Grabner has been a total non-factor offensively, scoring zero points over his last 11 games. Grabner has proven to be a productive scorer in the past and should eventually break the unfortunate streak, with coach Jack Capuano believing a day off might do the trick.

Isles' Grabner To Return Saturday

News: Michael Grabner has completed his two-game suspension and will be back in the lineup Saturday, Arthur Stape of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner received the banishment following an illegal hit on the Hurricanes' Nathan Gerbe last Saturday. In his return, he'll likely assume his usual spot on the first line, where he has contributed eight points in eight games.

Isles' Grabner Suspended Two Games

News: Michael Grabner has been suspended for two games as a result of his hit on Carolina's Nathan Gerbe, the Raleigh News & Observer's Chip Alexander reports.
Analysis: The hit wasn't particularly brutal, but Michael Grabner clearly led with his shoulder and swiped Gerbe in the head. Outside of the suspension, Grabner is off to a great start this year, with two goals and six assists through eight games. Barring a successful appeal, he'll sit Tuesday and Friday, before returning to the lineup Saturday against the Flyers.

Isles' Grabner Phone Hearing Monday

News: Michael Grabner will have a phone hearing Monday about a possible suspension as a result of a hit in Saturday's game, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Michael Grabner had a hit that was possibly led with a shoulder in Saturday's game and may face a suspension.

Isles' Grabner Continues Strong Play

News: Michael Grabner notched an assist in Friday's loss to Chicago, giving him seven points through four contests.
Analysis: Michael Grabner has been raking in assists lately and sits with an impressive plus-4 rating. However, he has seen a mere nine seconds of power-play time this season, so there is a chance his numbers could correct. Regardless, Grabner has produced in the past and is a solid option for those in deeper leagues.

Another Three-Point Game For Isles' Grabner

News: Michael Grabner had his second three-point game in three contests to start the year, assisting on a trio of goals in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: With Michael Grabner having amazingly ripped off six points already in the early going, perhaps the Islanders will see fit to give him some time on the power play at some point. He's seen hardly any time with the man advantage so far -- a grand total of nine seconds in three games. It'll be hard for him to keep up this impressive scoring clip if he's relegated to even strength and penalty killing.
