ISLANDERS CLAIM MICHAEL GRABNER OFF WAIVERS
The New York Islanders have claimed Michael Grabner off of waivers from the Florida Panthers.

Grabner, 23, was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the first round (14th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. The Villach, AU native made his NHL debut with Vancouver last year during his third professional season, scoring 11 points (five goals, six assists) in 20 games.

“Michael is a former first round selection and a talented winger who has tremendous offensive ability,” said Islanders General Manager Garth Snow.

In three American Hockey League seasons with the Manitoba Moose, Grabner has posted 120 points (68 goals, 52 assists) with a plus-27 rating in 180 games. Grabner played three years of Junior hockey with the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League, where he totaled 88 goals and 41 assists for 129 points in 180 games. The 6-0, 170 lbs. right wing was traded from Vancouver to Florida on June 25, 2010 in a draft day transaction.
