Defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani scored a goal for Charlotte in a 2-1 victory over San Antonio Sunday.

Gragnani is a highly skilled, offensive-minded blueliner that has seen his share of time in the NHL, but his defensive game leaves something to be desired. He has recorded an impressive 14 points in 20 games this season.

Marc-Andre Gragnani was an assist-machine with four in Charlotte's 6-4 win over Grand Rapids on Friday night.

Production at the AHL level has never been a problem for Gragnani. He has eight points (all helpers) in six games. Over 73 NHL games, the 25-year-old has 18 points. He needs to start translating his AHL success over to where it really counts.

Marc-André Gragnani is looking for a fresh start after a solid training regimen this summer in the Montréal, Québec area.

Gragnani skated in organized games with Vancouver forward Maxime Lapierre every Friday and even developped a certain chemistry with Tony Mel on the one-timers during these scrimmages. Gragnani had a few moments with the Sabres in 2011, but has fallen off the fantasy radar ever since. He still however could have some fantasy value left in the tank and will start the season with the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

The Hurricanes placed Marc-Andre Gragnani on waivers.

The defenseman recently inked a one-year, two-way deal after notching 15 points in 58 games last year.

Marc-Andre Gragnani has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Gragnani will earn $105,000 at the AHL level, but that will balloon to $800,000 annually in the NHL. Gragnani didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Vancouver Canucks after he scored two goals and 15 points in 58 games last season.

Marc-Andre Gragnani didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Canucks on Monday.

The defenseman played in 14 games (but didn't crack the playoff lineup) after being acquired with Zack Kassian in the deal that sent Cody Hodgson to the Sabres. Gragnani has played in 80 career NHL games, just one game shy of the minimum needed for players 25 and older with three years of pro experience to automatically become an unrestricted free agent. He had 15 points on the year, earning $550,000.

Marc-Andre Gragnani will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

He will sit in the press box with Andrew Alberts and give way to Aaron Rome, who will dress for the first time in four games. Bench Gragnani for Saturday only as there is a very good chance he will play in at least eight of Vancouver's last 12 games. If he does not play in at least eight more games this season, he will become a free agent, an outcome the Canucks will surely seek to avoid.

Marc-Andre Gragnani will make his Vancouver debut at home against St. Louis on Thursday night.

He will take Chris Tanev's spot in the lineup and the two of them are expected to battle for ice time. "Obviously we want to see what Marc-Andre could do and Chris's game in Phoenix [2-1 shootout loss Tuesday] was a little bit more challenging," coach Alain Vigneault said. "Chris is a young defenseman trying to establish himself as an NHL player and so is Marc-Andre. It will be good internal competition." Gragnani was acquired from Buffalo, where he had 12 points and a plus-10 rating in 44 games, at the trade deadline Monday.

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Marc-Andre Gragnani from the Buffalo Sabres in a deal for Cody Hodgson.

The 24-year-old blueliner has loads of offensive potential, but he's been a bit inconsistent in his first full NHL season. In 44 games, he has 11 assists, 12 points and a plus-10 rating. He had 60 points in 63 games in the AHL last year. The defenseman is a restricted free agent at the end of the year.

Marc-Andre Gragnani returned to Buffalo's lineup on Tuesday night after being a healthy scratch for six previous games.

The Sabres dressed seven defensemen against New Jersey because Christian Ehrhoff was playing through an illness. As a result, Gragnani logged only 5:12 of ice time, with 2:01 coming on the power play, in the contest.
Wed, Feb 15, 2012 06:53:00 AM

Buffalo defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani will be a healthy scratch for tonight's game in Montreal.

Gragnani sat out four straight games as a healthy scratch in December and then logged less than 10 minutes of ice time in four of the 11 January games in which he dressed. Gragnani is 1-11-12 and a team-best plus-10 in 43 contests.
Tue, Jan 31, 2012 05:22:00 PM

Marc-Andre Gragnani is slated to suit up for Buffalo on Friday night after being a healthy scratch for the last four contests.

"I'm looking forward to it. It's been a little while now," Gragnani said. "I have to play harder in my zone. I started well and then I got maybe a little bit away from that. I'd like to contribute more offensively, too. I need to jump more in the play, and we'll see what I can do."
