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.
