Islanders Agree to Terms with Grabovski
30-year-old center signs four-year deal

The New York Islanders announced today that Mikhail Grabovski has agreed to terms on a four-year National Hockey League contract.

Grabovski, 30, scored 35 points (13 goals, 22 assists) in 58 games last season with the Washington Capitals. It was Grabovski’s eighth NHL season and first with Washington.

In 425 career NHL games with Washington, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens, Grabovski has 252 points (107 goals, 145 assists). He had a career year during the 2010-11 season with Toronto, recording career highs in goals (29), assists (29) and points (58) in 81 games. Grabovski competed in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs with Toronto, recording two assists in seven games.

Grabovski has represented Belarus on the international stage throughout his career. This summer, he was named a Top 3 Player on Belarus at the 2014 World Championships after scoring eight points (four goals, four assists) in six games. It was his ninth World Championship appearance. He also played on Belarus’ under-20 club at three World Junior Championships, winning gold in 2004 (Division 1B).

Montreal drafted Grabovski in the fifth round (150th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft. He made his North American debut in 2006-07, playing for the Canadiens and their AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.
