Grossman was placed on waivers Saturday for the purpose of terminating his contract, Elliotte Friedman of HNIC reports.

EDGE Analysis

Friedman speculates that Grossman could be exploring the idea of playing overseas. This news isn't likely to cause a stir in fantasy circles as Grossman only played in four games with Calgary and struggled in a bottom-six role, going scoreless with a minus-4 rating.

Grossmann was assigned to AHL Stockton on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Grossmann went unclaimed through his waiver period and will now head to the Flames' minor league affiliate on assignment. The 31-year-old blueliner recorded a minus-4 rating over three games played for the big club and will likely only be recalled if the team is in need of back end depth.

Grossman was waived by the team Tuesday, Craig Morgan of AZ Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has played in a mere three contests for the Flames this year, so it should come as no surprise the team opted to waive him. In those appearances, the veteran was minus-4 and recorded three shots on goals and seven hits. If he clears waivers, the blueliner will likely be reassigned to AHL Tucson where he can taken on a mentorship role for the organization.

Grossman has only suited up for two of the Flames' 11 games so far this season, failing to register a point.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't much of a surprise, as Grossman joined the Flames on a tryout contract and signed a one-year deal at the tail end of training camp. He's been a healthy scratch as their seventh defenseman most nights and won't likely make any fantasy waves this season, as the 11th-year NHLer has only managed 35 points over his last three campaigns combined.

Grossman signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Flames on Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. The deal is valued at $575,000.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman had been on a PTO with the Flames, evidently impressing management enough to stick around for this season. The big rearguard had only produced 86 points (13 goals, 73 assists) in 589 career games between the Stars, Flyers, and Coyotes, respectively.

Grossman inked a professional tryout agreement (PTO) with the Flames on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has spent the last seven seasons with Dallas, Philadelphia, and most recently, Arizona, where he tallied seven points over 50 games during the 2015-16 campaign. At six-foot-four, 230 pounds, the rearguard displays good puck-handling for a guy his size and is trusted on the ice as evidence by his average 17-plus minutes of ice time over his NHL tenure. If he gets signed to a long-term contract, he figures to find his role somewhere behind veteran blueliners T.J. Brodie and Mark Giordano.

Grossman (personal) will be in the lineup for the season finale Saturday night against host San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman had been with his family to welcome a child into the world. The Swedish veteran is a tank on the ice at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, providing his team with a shutdown presence on the back end. Still, he can largely be ignored in fantasy circles since he has just seven points in 57 games.

Grossman has left the team to be with his expecting wife, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the team out of the playoff race and just a few games remaining, it's possible the veteran blueliner will skip the remainder of the season. However, we will update his status again if he rejoins the team and is set to play again. Klas Dahlbeck will likely replace him in the lineup in the meantime.

Contrary to a prior report, Grossmann (illness) will play Tuesday against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Grossmann missed the last two games as he dealt with an illness and it appeared as though he was headed for a third straight contest on the bench, but coach Dave Tippett stated the defenseman would in fact draw into the lineup.

Grossmann (illness) will miss Tuesday's contest against the Jets, The Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossmann had been held out of the last two games as well as he dealt with the illness, and though it's considered just a day-to-day issue, it appears Arizona will play it cautiously and hold him out once again. The defenseman will get some extra time to rest with the All Star break approaching, so his next chance to slot back into the lineup will come next Tuesday against the Kings.
