Mikhail Grabovski C NYI 20 Days

Grabovski will not return to Friday's game against the Devils due to a lower-body injury.

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.

Grabovski scored a goal for the first time since Dec. 11 in Tuesday's loss to Vancouver.

Grabovski found the net for his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Blues.

With 11 points and a plus-5 rating in 26 games, 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.

Grabovski (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, with a retroactive date of Oct. 16.

Grabovski has been skating the last couple of days, but is still waiting to receive clearance for full contact.
