The Islanders have placed Mikhail Grabovski (upper-body) on IR retroactive to March 16th, 2016.

Grabovski failed his physical last week and his movement to injured reserve this morning enforces that he won’t be ready for the start of the regular season. With Grabovski out, it leaves the door open for an Islanders’ prospect like Mathew Barzal to crack the opening night roster.

Grabovski appeared in just 11 games after January because of concussion issues and it doesn’t look like he will be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season. Grabovski’s injury leaves a roster spot open for someone like Mathew Barzal to make the team on opening night.
