Grant garnered a one-year contract with the Ducks this offseason. The deal is of the one-way variety, which means he's unlikely to be a frequent shuffler between the NHL and AHL -- unlike what's happened in the past. Last season, the B.C. native spent time with the Predators, Sabres, and Buffalo's minor-league affiliate Rochester, but barely fell in the 20-point range between that trio of organizations. He can safely be ignored in the fantasy realm until he proves that he can hold down an NHL job for a sustained period of time.

  2. Derek Grant 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    Grant garnered a one-year contract with the Ducks this offseason. The deal is of the one-way variety, which means he's unlikely to be a frequent shuffler between the NHL and AHL -- unlike what's happened in the past. Last season, the B.C. native spent time with the Predators, Sabres, and Buffalo's minor-league affiliate Rochester, but barely fell in the 20-point range between that trio of organizations. He can safely be ignored in the fantasy realm until he proves that he can hold down an NHL job for a sustained period of time.
  3. Derek Grant 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    The 26-year-old Grant was brilliant for AHL Stockton this past season, scoring 27 goals and 45 points in 36 games. His strong performance earned him a 15-game call-up with the Flames, but he managed just one assist and a minus-7 rating. Still, it was enough for the Sabres to sign him to a one-year, two-way deal worth $650,000. With the Sabres ushering rookies nearly every single year, Grant will have to win a roster spot in camp, but it’s more likely that he spends the majority of the season with AHL Rochester. In case of injuries, Grant will also likely be one of the team’s first call-up options, possessing size and playing experience that would allow him to step in with ease.
  4. Derek Grant 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Grant spent the majority of 2013-14 with AHL Binghamton, where he racked up 12 goals and 10 assists in 46 games. He did get an extended look at the NHL level, but only posted two assists in 20 appearances with the Sens. He'll likely see a decent amount of action at the NHL level again this season, but he projects as a depth forward at best.
  5. Derek Grant 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  6. Derek Grant 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  7. Derek Grant 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    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.
