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.
Analysis: He's back and he's producing. Use him as you normally would.

Isles Activate Grabovski

News: The Islanders activated Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) off injured reserve on Saturday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski will be in the lineup Saturday night against the Stars, as Josh Bailey (hand) will head to IR to open up a spot for him. He's posted two goals and an assist through four games to date.

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.

Isles' Grabovski Could Return Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) felt good while practicing Friday and could play Saturday against the Stars, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski took part in Friday's session in a full capacity, joining Frans Nielsen and Cory Conacher on the Isles' second line. The team will reexamine him after Saturday's morning skate before reaching a determination on his status for the game later that evening, but if his concussion symptoms don't resurface, expect the team to activate him from IR.

Islanders Place Grabovski On IR

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, with a retroactive date of Oct. 16.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been skating the last couple of days, but is still waiting to receive clearance for full contact. Once that happens, Grabovski will likely need to make it through a practice or two before the Islanders bring him back for games. His move from to IR will allow the Islanders to activate Lubomir Visnovsky in advance of Thursday's game against the Bruins.

Islanders' Grabovski Skates Lightly Tuesday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) went through a light skate Tuesday morning, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: Head coach Jack Capuano was encouraged by Mikhail Grabovski's participation, calling it a positive sign in his recovery. Grabovski remains day-to-day for now, but with him back on the ice, a return should not be far off, so long as his concussion symptoms do not worsen.

Isles' Grabovski Has Concussion

News: Mikhail Grabovski was diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms Friday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: This would explain the Islanders' rationale for ruling Mikhail Grabovski "out indefinitely" after their practice Friday. The forward will be reevaluated early next week, with the hope that he'll be able to return to the ice before long.

Isles' Grabovski Out Indefinitely

News: Mikhail Grabovski (undisclosed) won't travel with the Islanders to Pittsburgh for Saturday's game and has been ruled out indefinitely, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Though the Islanders haven't offered much clarity on the exact nature of his injury, it's possible that Mikhail Grabovski is experiencing concussion-like symptoms as a result of the hit he took from the Sharks' John Scott on Tuesday. The Islanders will reassess Grabovski's condition when they return to Long Island after the weekend, but if the forward ends up missing subsequent games, a move to IR will likely be considered.

Isles' Grabovski Won't Return Thursday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (upper body) will not return to Thursday night's game, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski was caught with his head down and was run over by the Sharks' John Scott. The head looked to be a legal one, so no supplemental discipline should be forthcoming.

Isles' Grabovski Leaves After Taking Hit

News: Mikhail Grabovski left the ice after taking a hard hit from the Sharks' John Scott in Thursday's game, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski looked as though he may have sustained a concussion from the hit, as he appeared to be out cold on the ice before he was helped off by a trainer. The Islanders will run tests on him before a proper diagnosis of his condition is provided.

Isles' Grabovski Notches Two Points

News: Mikhail Grabovski grabbed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers. He went plus-1 on the evening.
Analysis: Grabo's off to a strong start with the Isles, but his health is always going to be a concern. As long as he's on the ice, though, his second-line trio with Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson is shaping up to be a strong one for the Isles.

Islanders Reunite Grabovski and Kulemin

News: Mikhail Grabovski has been playing on a line with Nikolai Kulemin during training camp, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: Not only is this duo playing on a line together but their lockers are also next to each other. They will anchor the second line for the Islanders and how they play together could go a long way towards determining how successful a season the team will have.

Isles Sign Grabovski To Four-Year Pact

News: Mikhail Grabovski signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Islanders on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The Isles already had a superstar center on their roster in John Tavares and another quality one in Frans Nielsen, but the addition of Mikhail Grabovski gives some needed legitimacy to the third line. It may take a while for the team to settle on Grabovski's linemates, but the 30-year-old will seemingly have enough talent around him to make a run at a 50-point season, if health permits.

Caps' Grabovski Signs With Belarussian Soccer Club

News: Belarus-1 TV says that Mikhail Grabovski has signed to play with Krumkachy Minsk, a Belarussian soccer club and will begin playing for the team in late July, TSNreports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski, a pending unrestricted free agent, is hoping to use his time in the Bealrussian soccer ranks to help keep in shape during the offseason, and there is currently no reason to suggest that this is a sign of a permanent career change. Grabovski netted 13 goals and 22 assists in 58 games for the Caps last season, although it remains if he will call DC home once free agency opens on July 5th.

Grabovski Uncertain To Remain With Caps

News: Mikhail Grabovski wants to know "who's going to be coach, who's going to be general manager" before he signs an extension with the Capitals, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski's unwillingness to commit to the Capitals is certainly understandable, given the uncertainty surrounding the future of general manager George McPhee and head coach Adam Oates. The Capitals have until July 1 to satisfy Grabovski's curiosity, at which point he will become an unrestricted free agent. Grabovski had a solid season for the Capitals when he was in the lineup, as he finished the campaign with 13 goals and 35 points in just 58 games, with injuries sidelining him for 24 contests. Grabovski's offensive talent at the center position will make him an attractive candidate in free agency, so the Capitals would be wise to settle their management structure with enough time to negotiate an extension for the 29-year-old Belorussian. Grabovski will be worth keeping an eye on in the later rounds of next season's fantasy drafts regardless of where he ends up.

Grabovski Notches First Point Since Return

News: Mikhail Grabovski assisted on Washington's only goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to New Jersey; the point was his first since January 14 and the first since he returned from injury on March 30.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski's season has been an injury-plagued campaign, playing just 53 games to date and just four since the Olympic break. He hasn't scored a goal since January 9 and had been streaky in the weeks leading up to that as well. While he's paired with Alexander Ovechkin, he could be an asset, just know he has a penchant to disappear at times.

Caps' Grabovksi Reunited With Ovechkin

News: Grabvoski skated as the left winger on Alex Ovechkin's line with Jay Beagle in the middle during Tuesday's pregame skate, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski returned for Sunday's game against Nashville after missing more than a month with a left ankle injury. He was moved up to Ovechkin's line in the latter stages of the game, and head coach Adam Oates looks to keep him opposite Ovechkin on the team's top line. Grabovski had 33 points in 49 games prior to his injury, and has some late-season value as long as he's playing with a talented scorer like Ovechkin.

Caps' Grabvoski Returns To Lineup Sunday

News: Grabovksi (ankle) will play Sunday, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been out since Feb. 27 with an ankle injury, but looks to be ready to go after missing more than a month. Given the duration of his absence, head coach Adam Oates will likely start Grabovski on the team's fourth line to start off with. However, given his skills, it shouldn't be too long before he is back on one of the team's top two scoring lines, and if healthy, he'll be worth adding at that point.

Capitals' Grabovski Will Not Play Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) will not be in the lineup for Saturday afternoon's matinee against Boston, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski is practicing with the team and while his return appears to draw near, the team has decided to hold him out of Saturday's match against Boston. He will have to wait until at least Sunday before he can draw back into the lineup, although there has yet to be a determination made as to his availability for Sunday's game in Nashville.

Capitals' Grabovski Inching Closer To Return

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) is making progress, but head coach Adam Oates said he was not sure he will be ready to play on Saturday, reports Monumental Network.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been out since the opening shift of a Feb. 27 game against Florida due to a left ankle injury. He has been practicing with the team for the last several days, but it sounds like Oates has yet to make a decision on when Grabovski will make his return to the lineup. With 33 points in 50 games this season, Grabovski's return will be welcomed by a Washington team that's trying to stay in the hunt for a playoff berth. While it might be a stretch to see Grabovski in the lineup this weekend, it sounds like he should be back sometime next week, so add him to your watch list and await final word on his return.

Caps' Grabovski Makes Surprise Return To Practice

News: Mikhail Grabovski (sprained ankle) was on the ice for Monday's practice, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Despite granting an interview last week suggesting he'd be off the ice until April, there Mikhail Grabovski was Monday morning. Grabovski skated as an extra and still looks to be at least a few games away from returning, but his presence on the ice at least suggests optimism that he could be healthy for the playoffs.

Caps' Grabovski: "Don't Expect Me For Two Weeks"

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) said "don't expect me on the ice for the next two weeks," during an interview with the blog Russian Machine Never Breakdown.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has not played since the opening shift of Feb. 27's game agains Florida. He has been spotted skating on his own briefly before Capitals practices occasionally in the interim, but it does not sound like he will be back in the immediate future. With 12 goals and 33 points in 50 games, his presence is likely to be sorely missed by a Capitals team desperately trying to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. When he returns - and how effective he will be once he does so - is anyone's guess at this point, but this is certainly not encouraging news.

Capitals' Grabovski Resumes Skating

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) was spotted skating on his own prior to the Capitals' Thursday practice, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: It was Grabo's first time Mikhail Grabovski skating since apparently reinjuring his ankle during a Feb. 27 game against Florida. Grabovski has been placed on IR retroactive to that game, and is eligible to come off the injured list at any time. However, given that he is only doing light skating and not practicing or taking any contact, he is unlikely to be reinserted into the lineup anytime soon. This is bad news for a Capitals team that has won only two of its last seven games with Grabovski out of the lineup.
