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.

Capitals Place Grabovksi on Injured Reserve

News: The Capitals have placed Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) on the injured reserve list retroactive to Feb. 27, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The team did not specify whether Mikhail Grabovski was on the short-term or long-term injured reserve list, the latter having salary cap implications. The designation will open up a roster spot for the Capitals to recall a player from Hershey. Grabovski stated on Saturday that he was hopeful to resume skating sometime this week, but so far, no timetable has been given for his return.

Caps' Grabovski Hopes To Skate Next Week

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) said that he hopes to start skating next week, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been sidelined for three-straight games and it will be four when he misses Saturday as well. He said that he is just making sure that everything is properly healed up before he returns to the ice. He remains day-to-day.

Caps' Grabovski Likely Out Wednesday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) is expected to miss his third straight game Wednesday vs. the Flyers, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate and looks safe to rule out for this one. He was set to be reevaluated over the weekend, but the Capitals have yet to provide an update on his condition.

Capitals' Grabovski Will Not Play Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Bruins, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' website reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski tweaked an existing ankle injury in Florida on Thursday night, so he flew back to Washington on Friday to be evaluated, and will be unavailable Saturday. Expect another update on Grabovski's status following his trip to the doctor.

Capitals' Grabovski Tweaks Ankle

News: Mikhail Grabovski aggravated his ankle injury during Thursday's game against the Panthers. The injury doesn't sound good, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski missed the final eight games before the Olympic break and was reportedly still dealing with pain earlier this week. Perhaps he'll just end up day-to-day, but it isn't a good sign that he aggravated the injury in his first game back from a five-week absence.

Caps' Grabovski Leaves With Injury

News: Mikhail Grabovski left Thursday's game against the Panthers with a lower-body injury and is questionable to return, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski was making his return from an ankle injury in Thursday's game and left with another lower-body injury. Speculation is that he aggravated the same ankle injury. Consider him day-to-day if he does not return to the game.

Caps' Grabovski To Return Thursday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) will be in the lineup Thursday against the Panthers, NBC Washington's Adam Vingan reports.
Analysis: The lengthy break appears to have done wonders for Mikhail Grabovski, who surely benefited from the rest after the ankle injury kept him out for the Capitals' final eight games before the Olympics. Expect him to be plugged back in as the second-line center Thursday. Grabovski has 12 goals and 21 assists over 33 games.

Caps' Grabovski Looks Good To Go For Next Week

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) was back skating at Thursday's practice and appears in line to play Feb. 27 vs. the Panthers, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski missed the previous eight games before the break with a left ankle injury, but it appears as though having the past week and a half off has allowed him to approach full health. The 30-year-old has 12 goals and 21 assists over 49 games on the season.

Capitals' Grabovski Will Not Play Saturday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Devils, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski was able to skate with his teammates Friday, but he is still experiencing some pain in his ankle, so he will be held out Saturday. With Grabovski able to skate, he should be good to go when play resumes at the end of the month following the Olympic break.

Capitals' Grabovski Practices Friday

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) practiced with team during Friday's skate, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski continues to rehab an ankle injury suffered during the Capitals' January 24 loss to New Jersey. The Capitals will likely hold him out of games until after the upcoming Olympic break, as the team will need all hands on deck if the Capitals are to survive a tough schedule to close out the season and attain a playoff berth. An unrestricted free agent at season's end, Grabovski has 12 goals and 21 assists in 49 games for the Capitals this season.

Caps' Grabovski Likely Out Thru Break

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) isn't expected back until after the break in the schedule for the Winter Olympics, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski skated on his own briefly before Monday's practice. He has missed the past five games with the ankle injury, and his inability to work out with the team to this point makes it quite likely he'll be out 'til after the Olympics.

Capitals' Grabovski Still Not Practicing

News: Mikhail Grabovski (ankle) skated alone prior to Saturday's practice, Adam Vingan of NBC4 Washington reports.
Analysis: Mikhail Grabovski has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury during a January 24 loss against New Jersey. His outlook for Sunday's game against Detroit does not look good, bad news for a Capitals team that has dropped its last two games. He remains day-to-day.

Capitals' Grabovski Out For Thursday

News: Mikhail Grabovski did not make the trip to Columbus due to an ankle injury, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: This will be the third straight game Mikhail Grabovski has missed due to the ailment, which occurred during the second period of January 24th's 2-1 loss in New Jersey. There is no timetable for his return. Brooks Laich should continue to fill in for Grabovski on the second line with Martin Erat and Troy Brouwer for as long as the 28-year-old Belorussian is out of the lineup, which would presumably extend to at least tomorrow night's contest in Detroit. Grabovski is third in scoring for the Capitals this season with 12 goals and 33 points in 49 games.

Capitals' Grabovski Won't Join Team In Buffalo

News: Mikhail Grabovski will not join the Capitals for their upcoming game in Buffalo on Tuesday night, Sky Kerstein of 106.7 The FAN reports.
Analysis: Grabovksi suffered a leg injury in the Jan. 24 loss to New Jersey and has not skated or practiced since. The loss of Mikhail Grabovski is significant for a Capitals team that has just one win in its last eight outings and has had difficulty finding offense during that stretch. Brooks Laich has taken Grabovski's spot on the team's second line in the interim, and although Laich himself was not on the ice for practice Monday morning, he is expected to be in the lineup when the Capitals take the ice against a Buffalo team that has defeated them twice already this season.
