2019 Fantasy Outlook
Grant began the 2018-19 campaign with the Penguins, producing five points in 25 games in a fourth-line role before returning to the Ducks via trade. He finished the year with another nine points in 31 outings, giving him a total of 14 points over 56 contests, a step back from his 24-point effort from the year before. The 29-year-old forward will play on a one-year contract this season, and he'll have to battle with a slew of young forward prospects for ice time. Grant will be hard pressed to post more than 20 points in 2019-20, so he can safely be ignored in all fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Fitting in with new club

March 4, 2020
Grant collected two assists and four hits in a 5-2 win over Washington on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
A trade deadline acquisition from Anaheim, Grant went scoreless in his first two games with his new club but has broken out with two points in each of his last two outings. Wednesday's two assists gave the 29-year-old 24 points on the year, matching the career high he established in 2017-18 for the Ducks. Grant is currently centering Philadelphia's third line with James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Pitlick, a trio that has a chance to be a solid two-way unit down the stretch.

Picked up by Pittsburgh in free agency, Grant will suit up for his sixth club in the last six seasons. The 28-year-old had a late breakout season, scoring 12 goals and adding 12 helpers in 66 games for the Ducks in 2017-18, but his services weren't retained. The Penguins appear set up the middle too, so Grant will need to either shift to wing or accept a place with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Grant garnered a one-year contract with the Ducks this offseason. The deal is of the one-way variety, which means he's unlikely to be a frequent shuffler between the NHL and AHL -- unlike what's happened in the past. Last season, the B.C. native spent time with the Predators, Sabres, and Buffalo's minor-league affiliate Rochester, but barely fell in the 20-point range between that trio of organizations. He can safely be ignored in the fantasy realm until he proves that he can hold down an NHL job for a sustained period of time.
The 26-year-old Grant was brilliant for AHL Stockton this past season, scoring 27 goals and 45 points in 36 games. His strong performance earned him a 15-game call-up with the Flames, but he managed just one assist and a minus-7 rating. Still, it was enough for the Sabres to sign him to a one-year, two-way deal worth $650,000. With the Sabres ushering rookies nearly every single year, Grant will have to win a roster spot in camp, but it’s more likely that he spends the majority of the season with AHL Rochester. In case of injuries, Grant will also likely be one of the team’s first call-up options, possessing size and playing experience that would allow him to step in with ease.
Grant spent the majority of 2013-14 with AHL Binghamton, where he racked up 12 goals and 10 assists in 46 games. He did get an extended look at the NHL level, but only posted two assists in 20 appearances with the Sens. He'll likely see a decent amount of action at the NHL level again this season, but he projects as a depth forward at best.
The 23-year-old played his first five NHL games last year yet failed to crack the scoresheet. Unless he lights up the AHL, Grant carries little to no value in fantasy leagues.
Grant continued his professional development in 2011-12 playing in 60 games with Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton, recording eight goals and 15 assists. He's a raw prospect, but has some nice potential standing at 6-3 and 190 pounds. Look for him to once again spend a full season in the AHL in 2012-13 with a possible chance at seeing some NHL games the following season.
The 21-year-old Grant, who left Michigan State after two years, got his first taste of pro hockey in 2011, playing in 14 regular season games for Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton, notching a goal and five assists. He also played in seven playoff games, recording a goal and an assist. The 6'3", 190-pound center will spend his first full season at the pro level this year where he'll continue to refine his game. He's a smart, playmaking center with nice size, but will need to add some more muscle to his frame before challenging for a spot in Ottawa's lineup. Grant is likely two years away from being considered for the big club.
