The Vegas Golden Knights have agreed to take Mikhail Grabovski from the Islanders as part of a larger trade.

That will save the Islanders $5 million in cap space. Grabovski unfortunately didn't play at all in 2016-17 due to concussion issues. Prior to that he had been disappointing with the Islanders as he had just 44 points in 109 contests over the 2014-15 and 2015-16 campaigns.

It's being speculated that Mikhail Grabovski could be heading to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Islanders have a deal in place to send their first-round pick to Vegas to ensure that the Golden Knights take a designated player in the expansion draft. It's also believed that the trade has another layer that will allow New York to shed Grabovski's salary. He has been sidelined with a concussion since March 2016. We will find out how all the pieces fall into place on Wednesday when the Golden Knights reveal their team and the trades that have been made.

Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) is on the injured non-roster list.

Grabovski failed his physical due to concussion symptoms that have been bothering him since last season. There's no known timetable for his recovery, which is to be expected when it comes to a concussion.

Still dealing with concussion symptoms dating back to February, Mikhail Grabovski unsurprisingly failed his physical.

The veteran forward is still not cleared to skate as he continues to recover from a concussion. His season continues to be in doubt. However even when healthy, the veteran forward has a high of 13 goals and 35 points since his 2011-12 campaign, so prospective fantasy owners shouldn't feel like their talent pool just got thinner.
