Isles' Grabovski Activated

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, TSN's James Mirtle reports.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano strongly hinted Wednesday that the forward could be available for Thursday's Game 5 against the Capitals, and it looks like that will indeed be the case. The 31-year-old forward appears likely to skate on the second or third line during the evening playoff showdown. He last saw postseason action in 2012-13 as a member of the Maple Leafs.

Isles' Grabovski Has 'Good Chance' To Play Game 5

News: Coach Jack Capuano said after Wednesday's practice that Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) has a "real good chance" of playing in Thursday's Game 5 against the Capitals, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: Capuano hasn't made any changes with his forward ranks over the last two games, but with the team generating just three goals during that time, it appears the Isles head man may be willing to mix things up with the series heading back to Washington for Game 5. Mikhail Grabovski hasn't played since Feb. 19 due to the concussion, but it's believed that he's been in the clear for quite some time now. He practiced Wednesday as a top-12 forward, likely indicating that he'll make his return to the lineup as a member of the team's second or third line.

Isles' Grabovski Close To A Return

News: Grabovksi (concussion) is close to a return to action, according to SNY.tv.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski would've probably already joined the team if this was the regular season. Coach Jack Capuano hinted Saturday that his absence from the lineup isn't just because of his health. Should the Islanders lose Game 3 they might insert Grabovski for a spark for Game 4.

Isles' Grabovski Close To A Return

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) is getting close to a return to action, according to SNY.tv.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has participated in two full practices to go along with Monday's skate and hasn't suffered any setbacks. In a perfect world the Islanders may like to get Grabovski some game action before the playoffs begin next Wednesday but they may not have that luxury if Friday and/or Saturday become must wins just to get into those playoffs.

Isles' Grabovski Sheds No-Contact Jersey

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) practiced Monday with the Islanders without a non-contact sweater, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Though Mikhail Grabovski traveled with the Islanders to Philadelphia for Tuesday's game, coach Jack Capuano indicated the forward isn't close to a return. Grabovski has been out of commission with the head injury since Feb. 19, and may need to get some conditioning work in with AHL Bridgeport before the Islanders feel comfortable using him in games. Any return to game action for Grabovski likely won't come until the playoffs.

Isles' Grabovski Skates With Team

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) skated with the team Friday, according to SNY.tv.
Analysis: General manager Garth Snow is lucky that everyone remembers his trades for defenders Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk as signing Mikhail Grabovski to a four-year, $20 million contract looks like a bust. Grabovski only has nine goals and 19 points in 51 games this season. Unless he comes back healthy soon and performs fantastically in the playoffs, his first season with the Islanders won't be a memorable one.

Isles' Grabovski Not Close To A Return

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) is not close to returning to game action for the Islanders, according to SNY.tv.
Analysis: We all know that concussions can be tricky; some players are able to return in a short amount of time while others seemingly take forever to recover. The Isles can afford to let Mikhail Grabovski recover at his own pace, as they have a glut of forwards on their roster right now that are forcing some tough decisions on coach Jack Capuano on a game-to-game basis.

Isles' Grabovski Skates Wednesday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) skated prior to the Islanders' practice Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been sidelined since Feb. 19 since sustaining a concussion and appears to be inching closer to a return. Coach Jack Capuano didn't offer any timetable for the 31-year-old, but a return to the ice is clearly a step in the right direction. He'll likely need to be a full participant in at least one practice before he's cleared for game action.

Isles' Grabovski Placed On IR

News: Mikhail Grabovski (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday. According to Newsday's Arthur Staple, Grabovski is dealing with a concussion.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski's placement on IR -- nor his diagnosis of a concussion -- register as a surprise after he appeared to be knocked out cold after taking a shoulder to the head from the Predators' Eric Nystrom during the first period of Thursday's win. The forward was ultimately able to skate off the ice, but was quickly ruled out from a return to action. He'll now be required to miss at least three games and won't be eligible to play again until Feb. 27, but it remains uncertain if he would even be ready to go by then. Grabovski will remain under the concussion protocol until his symptoms of the head injury dissipate.

Isles' Grabovski Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Mikhail Grabovski left Thursday's game against the Predators with an upper-body injury and will not return, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski appeared to take a hit to the head from the Preds' Eric Nystrom, sending him hard to the ice. The forward remained motionless for a decent spell of time, with doctors calling for the stretcher before he was able to get to his feet and amble off the ice. Given the nature of the incident, it seems likely that Grabovski may have suffered a concussion. He'll remain day-to-day until the team provides a further update on his condition.

Isles' Grabovski Contributes Assist In Win

News: Mikhail Grabovski registered an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: After a short-lived stint atop the Isles' top line next to John Tavares in late January, Mikhail Grabovski has since become a fixture on the team's second trio, which has unsurprisingly resulted in limited production. Over the last five games, he's compiled a goal, assist, and six shots -- satisfactory production, but nothing worth much excitement.

Grabovski Returns To Isles' Lineup

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) will play Tuesday against the Rangers.
Analysis: The return of Mikhail Grabovski, who last suited up on Jan. 9, will be a welcome one, with fellow forward Kyle Okposo slated to miss 6-8 weeks. Grabovski skated with Josh Bailey and John Tavares at Monday's practice, a top-line assignment that carries some fantasy upside for Grabovski as long as the combo sticks.

Isles' Grabovski Returns To Practice

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) returned to practice for the Islanders on Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has missed the past give games due to the injury but is on track to return to the Islanders when their schedule resumes after the All-Star break.

Islanders' Grabovski (Lower Body) Out Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) will miss his fourth straight game Saturday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski should continue to be considered day-to-day until the Islanders release further information on his injury. His next opportunity to skate will be against the Flyers on Monday.

Isles' Grabovski Still Sidelined

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) won't play Friday against the Penguins.
Analysis: The Isles plan to stick with the same lineup they rolled with in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Rangers, with the New York Post relaying via coach Jack Capuano that Mikhail Grabovski remains "day-to-day" at this stage.

Isles' Grabovski Not Practicing

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) wasn't on the ice for practice Thursday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: While there is always a chance that Mikhail Grabovski could play Friday versus Pittsburgh, that would seem unlikely at this point in time.

Isles' Grabovski To Sit Again Tuesday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski hasn't resumed practicing since suffering the lower-body injury in Friday's tilt with the Devils. He's still being regarded as day-to-day at this time.

Isles' Grabovski (Lower Body) Day-To-Day

News: Mikhail Grabovski (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: The Islanders are considering the forward day-to-day after he was forced to exit Friday's game with the injury following the first period. He'll have a shot at returning to action Tuesday against the Rangers, but Cal Clutterbuck (upper body) will step in to cover for him Saturday.

Islanders' Grabovski Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Mikhail Grabovski will not return to Friday's game against the Devils due to a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski initially left the bench in the first period, but returned for the start of the second. He then left the bench again and was ruled out for the night. His situation doesn't appear to be major given that he returned, but the team should give an update on his status prior to Saturday's opening faceoff against the Blue Jackets.

Isles' Grabovski Snaps Drought

News: Mikhail Grabovski scored a goal for the first time since Dec. 11 in Tuesday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Over the 10 games between his fifth and sixth goals of the season, Mikhail Grabovski managed just two assists and a minus-2 rating. His old 50-point days with the Leafs seem like they were ages ago.

Isles' Grabovski Tallies Fifth Goal

News: Mikhail Grabovski found the net for his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: With 11 points and a plus-5 rating in 26 games, Mikhail Grabovski has been just an adequate producer in his first season on Long Island, primarily working on the team's second line. It looks like the 30-year-old's days a 50-point scorer might be finished, but he'll still offer quality depth at forward for the Islanders.

Isles' Grabovski Nets Goal In Victory

News: Mikhail Grabovski tallied his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Bolts.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski was one of three Isles to find the net in the second period, giving him nine points in 15 games for the season. The winger should continue to produce fairly steadily on the Islanders' second line, but it might be difficult to count on him to surpass the 50-point plateau.

Isles' Grabo (Concussion): Two Assists In Return

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) picked up two assists in Saturday's 7-5 win over Dallas.

Isles' Grabovski Appears Set To Play Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) was on the ice for morning skate and appears set to return to action Saturday against the Stars, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Unless the Islanders reveal that Mikhail Grabovski suffered a late setback with his concussion during the morning session, he'll be activated from injured reserve and skate as the left wing on the Isles' second line. Grabovski missed the previous three games with the concussion.
