Eric Gryba: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gryba has been considered one of Ottawa's more underrated defensive projects the past couple of years, but it's now become time for him to make a real challenge for at least a part-time role with the big club. He's a big, mean defensive blueliner who likes to make life tough for opposing forwards. While not the best skater, he is able to compensate with decent positional play. He's one of several defensive prospects who should challenge for playing time in Ottawa in 2012-13.
Gryba spent his first full season at the pro level in 2010-11, playing in 66 games for the Binghamton Senators where he recorded three goals and four assists and was a plus-7. At 6'3" and 214 pounds, Gryba is a physical, shutdown defenseman who skates fairly well for a big man. He's close to NHL-ready now, but will likely spend one more year at the AHL level due to the current logjam on Ottawa's blueline.
While he doesn't get the same press as Ottawa's other defensive prospects, Gryba is very close to being NHL-ready. He's big, tough, and can skate well for a big man. Gryba plays a very calm and positionally sound game, but will step up into the offensive zone if he sees an opening. He'll likely start the season in the AHL, but could see some action with the big club in 2010-11 should injuries occur on Ottawa's blueline. Look for him to crack the NHL fulltime in 2011-12.
