Free Agent

The Coyotes have placed Michael Grabner on unconditional waivers for purpose of buying out final year of Grabner's contract.

Grabner had one-year left on his three-year contract that carried a $3.35M AAV. The buyout will carry an $833K cap-hit in 2021 and $1.258M cap-hit in 2022. The 33-year-old, who had eight goals and three assists (11 points) in 46 games last year, is now an unrestricted free agent.

The Coyotes have signed Michael Grabner to a three-year contract worth $10.05M ($3.35M AAV).

Over the last two seasons, Grabner is tied for 35th in the NHL with 54 goals. However, he leads the league in empty net goals (11) over that span. That’s 20.4 percent of his goals without a goalie, so don’t expect the 30-year-old to score 25-plus goals each year. In Arizona, he brings a ton of speed, some offence and penalty killing to a young team in need of all of those qualities.

The Rangers have signed Michael Grabner to a two-year contract worth $3.2 million ($1.6M AAV).

Grabner, 28, is a former 30-goal scorer (34 in 2010-11) but has struggled for the last four seasons, especially in Toronto in 2015-16, where he tallied 18 points (9G / 9A) in 80 games. The Rangers top-6 is pretty much set in stone, so Grabner will bring some speed to their bottom-6 as he hopes to regain his scoring touch.

The Maple Leafs have acquired Michael Grabner from the Islanders in exchange for Taylor Beck, Carter Versarghe, Matt Finn, Tom Nilsson and Christopher Gibson.

Grabner, 27, was limited to 34 games last season due to a multitude of injuries including sports hernia surgery. In the 34 games he played in, the speedy winger tallied eight goals and five assists (13 points). He had a career-high 34 goals in 2010-11, but since then he has scored just 56 goals in four seasons. This trade helps his fantasy value because he moves from a team with an ultra crowded top-six to a team who is very thin at forward.
