Grabovski Grabbed, Given 'The Grab' as New Nickname


The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired young forward Mikhail Grabovski from the Montreal Canadiens earlier today in exchange for a draft pick and a prospect.  That draft pick is a 2nd rounder in 2010 and that prospect is Greg Pateryn, a United States Hockey League defenceman we drafted in the 5th round last week.

I'm no Grabovski expert, but from what I've read this doesn't sound like a bad deal.  He's only 24 years old and he apparently has some skill.  I just hope he's not another Alexander Suglobov.  The Grab will definitely get playing time with the Leafs this season because there's a solid lack of centers once Mats moves on.

At some point maybe we'll add a player people have actually heard of.
