Michael Grabner found the back of the net in the Rangers' 5-3 win against the Islanders on Thursday.
Grabner finished the 2015-16 campaign with nine goals and 18 points in 80 games. Obviously, this is an encouraging start, but keep in mind that Grabner logged just 10:47 minutes of ice time Thursday night, which is arguably a better indication of his long-term fantasy value than the goal he scored.

After a great rookie season when he potted 34 goals, Grabner has not performed very well at the NHL level and last season was his worst as he had only seven goals in 66 games with the Maple Leafs. He has spent most of his career with the Islanders and now heads back to New York, albeit with the Rangers. He has no fantasy value.
