Oilers Won't Re-Sign Grebeshkov

News: Denis Grebeshkov won't be re-signed by the Oilers, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: At 29 years of age, Denis Grebeshkov is no longer a prospect, and the Oilers will give their younger players a crack to make the team rather than rolling with the low-upside Grebeshkov.

Oilers Reassign Grebeshkov

News: Denis Grebeshkov was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Denis Grebeshkov failing to offer much contributions on the blue line in his seven games this season, the Oilers decided to shake things up a little bit in advance of Thursday's game. Corey Potter and Martin Marincin were recalled from Oklahoma City in corresponding moves in the hope that either player will help improve the club's defensive effort.

Oilers' Grebeshkov Recalled From AHL

News: Denis Grebeshkov was recalled from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Philip Larsen (undisclosed) uncertain for the upcoming road trip, Edmonton went ahead and brought up Denis Grebeshkov for some depth along the blue line. In eight games with the Oilers this season, Grebeshkov has five points (1G, 4A) and a minus-6 rating.

Oilers Grebeshkov Clears Waivers

News: Denis Grebeshkov cleared waivers Thursday and was assigned to AHL Oklahoma City.
Analysis: He'll be joined in the minors by Corey Potter after both players cleared waivers. Denis Grebeshkov appeared in three games for the Oilers before he was sent packing.

Oilers Place Grebeshkov On Waivers

News: The Oilers placed Denis Grebeshkov on waivers Wednesday.
Analysis: If Denis Grebeshkov clears waivers, he'll be assigned to AHL Oklahoma City, along with fellow reassignment Corey Potter. Grebeshkov failed to record a point in three games with the Oilers, and at 30 years old, he doesn't hold much value as a prospect anymore.

Oilers' Grebeshkov Skates With Forwards Monday

News: Grebeshov was skating with the Oilers' forwards during practice Monday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: It may have been a numbers-based adjustment due to the absence of Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Smyth, but perhaps Denis Grebeshkov is being considered for a role up front after Hall suffered a knee injury against Ottawa on Saturday.

Oilers Recall Grebeshkov

News: The Oilers recalled Denis Grebeshkov (groin) from AHL Oklahoma City on Friday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Edmonton sent Denis Grebeshkov to the AHL last Friday on a conditioning assignment to help him recover from his groin injury. He has spent the last three seasons in the KHL, and the Oilers' plans for how he'll fit into the defensemen rotation are still a bit murky.

Oilers Send Grebeshkov On Conditioning Assignment

News: Denis Grebeshkov (groin) has been sent to AHL Oklahoma City on a conditioning assignment.
Analysis: After he was able to take part in Thursday's morning skate without incident, Denis Grebeshkov will head to the minors to get some extended game action in before the Oilers bring him back to the parent club. Grebeshkov spent the last three seasons in the KHL and it remains to be seen where he'll fit into the club's defensemen rotation once he's healthy.

Oilers' Grebeshkov Skates Thursday

News: Denis Grebeshkov (groin) took part in the team's Thursday morning skate, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Denis Grebeshkov hasn't played in the NHL since 2009-10, as he spent the last few years in the KHL and is currently nursing a groin injury. It appears he's inching closer to a return, though he remains without any sort of timetable.

Oilers' Grebeshkov Almost Practicing

News: Denis Grebeshkov (groin) is approaching a return to practice with the Oilers.
Analysis: Denis Grebeshkov has been nursing a groin injury that has held him out of action. He's trying to make an impression to make the roster in Edmonton, and will likely need to be healthy in order to lock up a roster spot.

Oilers' Grebeshkov Nursing A Groin Injury

News: Denis Grebeshkov is nursing a groin injury, the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: The 29-year-old is looking to land a roster spot with the Oilers after spending the last few years in the KHL, but the injury certainly doesn't help his chances. Even if fully healthy, Denis Grebeshkov is not likely to see meaningful ice time with the Oilers.

Oilers Eager To See What They Have In Grebeshkov

News: The Oilers are looking forward to seeing how things go in Denis Grebeshkov's second stint with the team, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Denis Grebeshkov played for Edmonton from 2007-10 before being dealt to Nashville in a salary dump. He has played the last three seasons in the KHL. Grebeshkov will have to perform well in camp to make the team as their are 10 d-men fighting for seven spots. The bugaboo for Grebeshkov has been his willingness to gamble with his passes which can sometimes lead to odd man breaks for the opponents.

Denis Grebeshkov Returning To Oilers

News: Denis Grebeshkov agreed to a one-year deal with the Oilers on Thursday.
Analysis: Denis Grebeshkov, who played for the Oilers from 2007-10, returns to Edmonton after spending the past three seasons playing in his native Russia. The 29-year-old has 84 points in 227 career NHL games and will provide depth at defensemen for the Oilers.

Grebeshkov assists in return Saturday

News: Predators D Denis Grebeshkov assisted on a pair of goals but it wasn't enough to prevent Nashville from losing to Chicago 5-4 in Saturday's Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series. Grebeshkov missed the first four games of the series due to a lower-body injury. He finished at plus-1 in 17 shifts.
Analysis: Grebeshkov scored seven goals and recorded 14 assists while finishing at minus-16 in 51 games this year. Consider him a low-end Fantasy flier heading into the 2010-11 season.

Denis Grebeshkov, D, EDM Grebeshkov won't return Week 25

Denis Grebeshkov

Grebeshkov won't return Week 25

News: The Sports Xchange reports Predators D Denis Grebeshkov remains sidelined after surgery for a lower body (groin) injury. He will not be back before the end of the regular season.
Analysis: Grebeshkov might be able to make it back for the Predators' playoff run, but for Fantasy purposes, he won't be back for Week 25 (April 5-11). It's a real shame too since Grebeshkov, who came to Nashville at the trade deadline, could have done some serious damage with the Predators. He will remain a low-end Fantasy flier on Draft Day 2010.

Grebeshkov out 1-2 weeks

News: The Tennessean reports that Predators D Denis Gre­besh­kov is out 1-2 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Grebeshkov's numbers have slipped a little this season, and he missed more than a month with a knee injury. Hold on to him in deeper leagues for now.

Oilers ship Grebeshkov to Preds for pick

News: The Oilers have traded D Denis Grebeshkov to the Predators for a second-round draft pick.
Analysis: After a nice 39-point campaign in 2008-09, Grebeshkov's numbers have slipped a little this season with just 19 points in 47 contests. He did miss more than a month with a knee injury though, so still has value in deeper leagues. This move shouldn't affect his Fantasy value a whole lot, although Nashville is certainly a slightly better team than the Oilers.

Grebeshkov scores vs. former team

News: Oilers defenseman Denis Grebeshkov scored in the second period on Thursday against the Kings. Grebeshkov, who began his NHL career in 2003-04 with Los Angeles, opened the scoring at 13:38 of the second with his sixth goal. He played the puck off the left boards, backpedaled with it and took a seemingly harmless wrist shot from just inside the blue line that got past Erik Ersberg's stick while Kings defenseman Matt Greene was checking Zack Stortini near the crease.
Analysis: Grebeshkov has his first goal in 13 games on Thursday. He has been playing better hockey since January, but Grebeshkov still isn't producing at the level we would like. Grebeshkov remains a low-end Fantasy flier.

Grebeshkov records assist in loss

News: Edmonton D Denis Grebeshkov recorded an assist on Saturday in a 6-1 loss at Calgary. The assist gives him 17 points on the season for the Oilers.
Analysis: The defender has six points in January alone but he remains a low-end Fantasy flier since he doesn't score consistently.

Grebeshkov has first goal since Oct.

News: Oilers D Denis Grebeshkov scored a goal, tallied an assist and finished at minus-1 on Tuesday against the Coyotes. Sam Gagner stole a puck from behind the Phoenix net and fed it to a pinching Grebeshkov to make it 4-3. It was his fourth goal but first score since Oct. 14.
Analysis: Grebeshkov came bursting out of the gate with three goals and seven points in his first eight games. He then hit a cold spell and got injured in mid-November. He returned in mid-December, but Grebeshkov has still struggled to regain his form. He has been a second-half player the last few seasons, so there is hope that Grebeshkov could still turn it around. But he remains a low-end Fantasy flier until further notice.

Denis Grebeshkov

Grebeshkov back in action

News: Edmonton D Denis Grebeshkov (knee) was back in the lineup on Tuesday night against the Kings.
Analysis: Grebeshkov is definitely a developing offensive player, but until Grebeshkov is 100 percent and productive, he is a low-end Fantasy option when active.

Denis Grebeshkov

Grebeshkov comes off IR

News: The Oilers have removed D Denis Grebeshkov from IR, which likely means a return for him on Tuesday vs. the Kings.
Analysis: Grebeshkov is definitely a developing offensive player, but until Grebeshkov is 100 percent and productive, he is a low-end Fantasy option when active. You can probably insert him into your lineup for Fantasy Week 11 (Dec. 14-20) without too much worry, but it might take him a bit to work off the rust.

Denis Grebeshkov

Grebeshkov close to returning

News: Edmonton D Denis Grebeshkov (knee) missed his 12th straight game on Wednesday against the Lightning but could return soon.
Analysis: Grebeshkov flew down to Florida on Monday to skate with the Oilers and Edmonton did send Dean Arsene back to the AHL on Wednesday, so Grebeshkov could be back in the coming days. He is definitely a developing offensive player, but until Grebeshkov is 100 percent and productive, he is a low-end Fantasy option when active.

Grebeshkov out indefinitely

News: Oilers D Denis Grebeshkov (knee) is out indefinitely, according to the National Post.
Analysis: Grebeshkov was off to a solid start this season with 10 points in 19 games, and was worth using in all deeper formats before this injury popped up. Stash him away until he's back healthy again, which might not be for a while.
