Grabovski has been playing on a line with Nikolay Kulemin during training camp, according to the Islanders Point Blank.

Mikhail Grabovski has inked a four-year, $20 million contract with the New York Islanders.

Grabovski struggled in the second half of the 2013-14 campaign, in part due to injury, but he's capable of recording over 50 points per season. In New York, he'll likely serve as the team's second-line center behind John Tavares. That might cause Frans Nielsen to shift from center as he should also be on one of the Islanders' top two lines.

MacLellan has spoken with Grabovski's agent, Gary Greenstin, a couple of times in Philadelphia at the draft. If the two sides can't bride the gap then Garbovski will walk as an unrestricted free agent next week.

The Washington Capitals get Mikhail Grabovski back in action against the Nashville Predators on Sunday.

Grabovski hasn't played since Feb. 27 because of a left ankle injury, so it's not shocking to hear that the team plans on bringing him along slowly. Even so, the 30-year-old's a worthy spot starter with 33 points in 50 games played this season, although he isn't great for peripheral stats (just 68 SOG in those 60 contests this season).
