Center Derek Grant played in his second straight game on Saturday.
Normally Grant would be the extra forward but with Ryan Getzlaf hurt, Grant is seeing action as the fourth line center with everyone else on the depth charts moving up a spot. "Especially early in the season, there’s things that take place," coach Randy Carlyle said. "And there’s injuries and training camp bumps and bruises that you’re always having to make adjustments to your lineup. A player like Derek Grant gets an opportunity now. So when one door closes through injury on another player, there’s one player that gets an opportunity. And we’re looking for people to fill holes and seize opportunities." Grant has no fantasy value but it's nice to see the 27-year-old with another chance at playing in the NHL. Oct 8 - 5:12 AM

Feb 9 - 1:03 PM

Derek Grant has been assigned to Rochester of the AHL.
