RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 23-year-old played his first five NHL games last year yet failed to crack the scoresheet. Unless he lights up the AHL, Grant carries little to no value in fantasy leagues.
Grant continued his professional development in 2011-12 playing in 60 games with Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton, recording eight goals and 15 assists. He's a raw prospect, but has some nice potential standing at 6-3 and 190 pounds. Look for him to once again spend a full season in the AHL in 2012-13 with a possible chance at seeing some NHL games the following season.
The 21-year-old Grant, who left Michigan State after two years, got his first taste of pro hockey in 2011, playing in 14 regular season games for Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton, notching a goal and five assists. He also played in seven playoff games, recording a goal and an assist. The 6'3", 190-pound center will spend his first full season at the pro level this year where he'll continue to refine his game. He's a smart, playmaking center with nice size, but will need to add some more muscle to his frame before challenging for a spot in Ottawa's lineup. Grant is likely two years away from being considered for the big club.
