Two goals and two assists in just 13:52 of work, now that's efficient. However he now has four goals and eight points in 29 games this season, so we wouldn't jump to pick him up.

It looks like Michael Grabner will make his Toronto Maple Leafs debut as they face the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Despite the obviously less-than-ideal start, Grabner has enough speed to possibly make an impact today. The Leafs need some kind of shot in the arm, especially on offense. Roman Polak is also expected to be in Toronto's lineup.

Don't be surprised if newly-acquired Michael Grabner earns a job on one of the Maple Leafs' top two lines.

Garbner can fly and he has a scorer's touch as evidenced by his 34-goal campaign a few seasons ago. He fell out of favour in Long Island and was relegated to primarily penalty-killing duty last season but with Toronto he could play a much bigger role. Watch him this training camp.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Michael Grabner from the New York Islanders in exchange for Matt Finn, Taylor Beck, Christopher Gibson, Tom Nilsson and Carter Verhaeghe.

This move brings Toronto down from 49 contracts to 45, which is noteworthy because the limit is 50 and the Leafs invited four players to their training camp on a tryout basis. As for Grabner, he comes with a $3 million annual cap hit for the 2015-16 campaign, but he's owed $5 million in salary due to the backloaded nature of his five-year deal. He had eight goals and 13 points in 34 games with the Islanders last season, so while Toronto is freeing up contract space, the Islanders' primary motivation is likely reducing their salary obligations and creating cap space.

Michael Grabner is on the trade block, according to Newsday’s Arthur Staple.

In fact, Staple says the Islanders are "actively shopping" the 27-year-old winger. After scoring 34 and 20 goals, respectively, in the 2010 and 2011 seasons, Grabner has a total of 36 goals over the past three seasons. He had eight goals and 13 points in 34 games in 2014-15 and recently had a second sports hernia surgery. He is due to make $5 million, with a $3 million cap hit, in the last season of his contract.
