The offseason acquisition skated with the rest of his teammates during the Isles' practice at Nassau Coliseum on Monday. He also skated on Saturday during the team's optional morning skate.
"Right now just see how he feels on a day-to-day basis," head coach Jack Capuano said. "Obviously he's not close to playing here yet, but it's good to have him back out there."
It is still unclear if Grabovski will be back in time to the playoffs. Capuano's main focus is just for him to get fully healthy.
"It's tough when you sustain an injury like that," he said. "We want to make sure that he's healthy. He's had Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, so going into the weekend we'll just evaluate him day-to-day. But it's good to have him out there and he got his heart rate up here today. He went through a pretty good practice."
Capuano did say that Grabovski will travel with the rest of the team to Philly and will skate during the morning. "We'll skate him and then condition him after," the Isles' coach said.
Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin were given "maintenance days" on Monday. Both players got banged up a bit during Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Frans Nielsen left the game in the middle of the second period, but later returned and finished the rest of the contest. Matt Martin also took a hit in the second that left him in some pain. He, however, did not miss any game time.
