While Michael Grabner didn’t have the Calder Memorial Trophy in tow on his flight back to Long Island, he did have a lot of positives to take away from his time in Las Vegas.

“I was naturally a little disappointed that I didn’t win Rookie of the Year, but (Jeff) Skinner was definitely deserving of the award,” Grabner said after Wednesday night’s NHL Awards Show. “He had a great season and I’m still happy to have been a finalist.”

Grabner is becoming a regular at these sorts of events, having already met a lot of the NHL’s best at All-Star Weekend this year in Raleigh.

“It’s fun being around so many of the top players in the league,” Grabner said. “Hopefully I make it back again next year and maybe do a little better in the voting.”

The Gremlin’s marathon week continues on Friday night on Long Island, when he’ll join a number of his teammates at the Islanders Draft Party at Nassau Coliseum.

“This year’s draft should be exciting for us.” Grabner said. “We’ll get a really talented player where we’re picking. It’ll be good to see the crowd’s reaction when we add another young guy to our core.”

With a busy day of travel and media behind them, Michael Grabner and Doug Weight enjoyed a leisurely morning by the pool on Wednesday. Doug’s family claimed a pool-side cabana at dawn and was happy to share the valuable real estate with Grabs and his friend. 

The pool party wrapped up around 1p.m. when the boys headed to their rooms to prepare for the show. All of the nominees gathered in the players’ lounge at 2 p.m. and slowly filed onto the red carpet. Grabs was one of the first players to take the long walk through the scorching heat. Doug began escorting his wife down the carpet shortly after Grabs was seated in the venue.

After winning the King Clancey Trophy, Doug was swooped upstairs to the media room, where he addressed journalists and posed for pictures. Upon his arrival, Doug was given a bag of goodies and a blackberry playbook, which needless to say thrilled his kids.

Doug’s entire family joined him in the media area after the awards show for a portrait with the trophy. The entire family took advantage of the behind-the-scenes experience, posing for pictures with other award winners like Niklas Lidstrom and Corey Perry.

After the show, the nominees all headed back to the pool for the official after party, where the Stanley Cup was on display, perched on a platform in the center of the pool.

Day one of Michael Grabner and Doug Weight’s excursion to Las Vegas is behind us. Considering the three hour time-change, both players ended up putting in well more than a full day of work.

Each arrived at JFK airport bright-and-early, Doug with his entire family, and Grabs accompanied by a buddy from home. The 5½ hour flight had the pair at the Palms Hotel right on time for their 2:45p.m. (local time) player meeting, followed by media availability at 3p.m. While Grabs new a few of his fellow nominees from the 2011 All-Star Game in Raleigh, he was practically the shy kid in the corner compared to Dougie, who seems to know every single person that he runs into.

Both players drew good crowds of national media during their 20-minute scrums, and while Doug’s official duties were done following his interviews, Grabner’s day was just beginning.

The Isles rookie-of-the-year candidate headed from the Palms to Caesar’s, where he was fitted for a new Awards-Show suit at John Varvados. He drove to and from the fitting with Vancouver forward Ryan Kessler, who shared a gripping first-hand account of his run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Grabs finally finished his official duties, high atop the Palms Hotel, with a photo shoot for The Fourth Period. The Magazine was given special access to the top floor’s out-door area for some nice pictures of the Gremlin, with the Vegas skyline behind him
Now free until Wednesday’s Red Carpet ceremony, it’s time for the Isles crew to grab their first bite to eat since breakfast at JFK.
