Nicklas Grossmann, who was with his wife for the birth of their child, is expected to rejoin the Coyotes in San Jose.

That will allow Grossmann to play in Arizona's season finale. He will miss Thursday's game in Nashville though.
Apr 7 - 3:09 PM

Nicklas Grossmann, whose wife recently had a baby, isn't with the Coyotes in Nashville.

Grossmann will miss Thursday's game against the Predators. He might rejoin the Coyotes in San Jose for the season finale on Saturday.
Apr 7 - 9:47 AM

Nicklas Grossmann is away from the Coyotes to be with his wife, who is about to give birth.

"He left early this morning. His wife is probably going to have a baby today," coach Dave Tippett said. " ... I would hope (he rejoins the team on the trip). I don't know. You never know. It's day-to-day. If he gets through a day or two, it's probably better he meets us out in San Jose than fly all the way back out here. But we'll see how that goes." He isn't expected to play Monday as a result.
Apr 4 - 4:47 PM

Nicklas Grossmann, Viktor Tikhonov and Kyle Chipchura will each be scratched Saturday against the Flyers.

Of the three, only Grossmann has posted much fantasy value. He's tallied seven points, 22 PIMs, 73 blocks, and 98 hits through 55 games this season, so we'd leave him on the wire.

Nicklas Grossmann (lower body) is healthy enough to play Tuesday.

He didn't play on Sunday because of a lower-body injury.
Mar 22 - 3:20 PM

Nicklas Grossmann will miss Sunday's match with San Jose due to a lower body injury, he is considered day-to-day.

Through 55 games this season the veteran defender has posted seven points, 22 PIMs, 73 blocks, and 98 hits. Unfortunately, that's not enough to warrant a spot on your roster.
Mar 20 - 9:55 PM

Nicklas Grossmann missed Friday's practice for maintenance reasons.

This is just a FYI as there's no indication that Grossmann won't be available on Saturday. Grossmann has three goals and seven points in 54 contests in 2015-16.
Mar 19 - 4:49 AM

Nicklas Grossmann will be scratched against the Lightning on Tuesday.

The veteran defender has posted seven points with 61 blocks and 82 hits through 45 games this season. So not exactly a fantasy maven on the blue line.
Feb 23 - 7:30 PM

Nicklas Grossmann and Jared Tinordi will be scratched from Saturday's match with the Blues.

With 61 blocks and 80 hits through 44 games this season, the veteran defender Grossmann at least puts up a bit of consistent play if you're in need of a plug. Tinordi meanwhile has had trouble cracking the Coyotes' lineup since being acquired just before the All-Star game, with only five games played.

The Arizona Coyotes have been carrying eight defensemen and that's reduced Nicklas Grossmann's role.

Grossmann has spent four of Arizona's last six games in the press box. "Obviously, you want to play every single night but I see it as an opportunity to just work on my game and I’ve been doing extra work in practice," Grossmann said. "Just trying to get ready so when I get the call, I’m good to go. That’s how you gotta look at it. You can’t go around and hang your head. You gotta keep upbeat and just try to see something positive about it." You got to wonder if Arizona will ultimately trade Grossmann to end its logjam. While he doesn't seem to be fitting into the Coyotes plans at the moment, he's still a veteran of 572 games.
Feb 10 - 8:33 AM

Nicklas Grossmann and Boyd Gordon will be scratched from Friday's tilt with Anaheim.

While Gordon is a classic defensive centerman who doesn't impact the stat sheet much, Grossmann has had a nice season as a defensive defeseman who racks up tough guy numbers. Through 41 games this season he has 55 blocks and 75 hits.
Feb 5 - 9:37 PM

Nicklas Grossman is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 31-year-old has three goals and seven points in 41 games this season. The veteran has missed nine games due to injury or illness in 2015-16, but it's his first time missing a game for any other reason. Steve Downie will join him in the press box while Jarred Tinordi is out because of a lower-back injury.
Feb 4 - 9:24 PM

Nicklas Grossmann wasn't able to return Monday from an illness, but he will be back on Tuesday against Winnipeg.

He sat out two games because he wasn't feeling well. Grossmann is projected to be paired with Michael Stone.
Jan 26 - 3:50 PM

Nicklas Grossmann (illness) may play Monday night.

His status will probably be decided at the pregame warm-ups. Grossmann didn't play Saturday against Los Angeles because of an illness.
