Nicklas Grossmann and Freddie Hamilton will join Dennis Wideman in the press box for Saturday's match against Vancouver.

Grossmann played just 11:32 in his debut, but has averaged over two hits and over a block per game in his career. Grossmann is nice spot-starter but we wouldn't rush to grab him.

Nicklas Grossmann, Freddie Hamilton, and Brett Kulak will each be scratched for Friday's match with Edmonton.

Grossmann played just 11:32 in his debut, but has averaged over two hits and over a block per game in his career. So if you're in a league that rewards such talents, bear him in mind if you need a spot-starter.

Nicklas Grossmann is battling for the seventh and final spot on the Flames blueline.

Grossmann is on a PTO and is up against Brett Kulak for the final spot. He had seven points in 58 games with Arizona last season so Grossmann is not a viable fantasy option in pools.

Nicklas Grossmann is expected to hit the open market on July 1.

In his first season with Arizona, he skated in 58 games and he contributed seven points.
Jun 14 - 4:14 PM

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.

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.
