Penguins' Ryan Graves: Inks six-year deal with Penguins
Graves signed a six-year, $27 million contract with Pittsburgh on Saturday, PuckPedia reports.
Graves had eight goals, 26 points, 83 hits and 152 blocks in 78 contests with New Jersey last season while averaging 19:57 of ice time. The 28-year-old defenseman is young enough that he might serve online a top-four role for the full life of that contract. Graves isn't likely to get much power-play ice time, though, and shouldn't be expected to do meaningfully better offensively than he did in 2022-23 (eight goals, 18 assists).... See More ... See Less

Graves is set to miss his second straight game despite practicing Monday and Tuesday. Kevin Bahl will likely draw in for the Devils in a limited role.

Devils' Ryan Graves: Tracking to be game-time call
Graves (upper body) is expected to be a game-time decision Tuesday against Carolina, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Graves took part in practice Monday and skated again Tuesday morning after missing New Jersey's 8-4 win over the Hurricanes in Game 3 on Sunday. If Graves is cleared to return, Kevin Bahl, who logged just 5:50 of ice time in Sunday's victory, could be a healthy scratch Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Not playing Sunday
Graves (upper body) will not play Sunday versus Carolina, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Graves will be replaced in the lineup by rookie Luke Hughes. Graves was injured Friday in Game 2 and missed practice Saturday.

Devils' Ryan Graves: Two points in victory
Graves scored a goal and an assist on three shots, helping the Devils to an 8-1 victory over the Blue Jackets on Thursday.
Graves extended the Devils' lead to 8-1 with a shot off the rush. He would also add an assist on Tomas Tatar's goal in the second period.

Devils' Ryan Graves: Plus-minus rating dropping
Graves had three shots, three blocked shots, one hit and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Jets.
Graves was stuck with a minus-2 rating for the sixth time in the last 21 games, and he has a minus-7 mark over that span after going plus-33 up to that point. The young Devils have started to post more clunkers down the stretch, which has negatively affected Graves' best fantasy category. Graves' fantasy profile is pedestrian outside of plus-minus, as he's racked up seven goals, 16 assists and 24 PIM through 74 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Pots first career GWG
Graves scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
The two teams traded goals through the first two periods and appeared to be headed to overtime after a scoreless third, but Graves took advantage of a soft Columbus defense to get to the front of the net and bang home a feed from Michael McLeod with just two seconds left on the clock. Graves snapped an eight-game point drought in the process, but the stay-at-home blueliner isn't known for his offense -- Tuesday's winner was the first of his career, and through 50 games on the season the 27-year-old has six goals, 18 points, 64 hits, 87 shots on net, 98 blocked shots and a whopping plus-30 rating that has him tied for fourth in the NHL with Seattle's Adam Larsson....

Devils' Ryan Graves: One of each Saturday
Graves scored a goal, dished an assist, went plus-3, blocked three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

He's also gone plus-12 over his last seven contests, supplying solid defense in addition to his newfound scoring touch. The defenseman is up to 15 points, 63 shots on net, 74 blocked shots, 52 hits and a plus-30 rating through 40 appearances overall.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Contributes assist in win
Graves logged an assist, five shots on goal, four blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-2 win over the Ducks.
Graves has logged four assists and a plus-9 rating over six games since he returned from a lower-body injury. The 27-year-old defenseman is known more for his sturdy play in his own zone than his contributions on offense, but doing a bit of both could get him on the fantasy radar. He's up to 13 points, 62 shots on net, 50 hits, 71 blocked shots and a plus-27 rating through 39 contests.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Activated from IR
Graves (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday,
This paves the way for Graves to return to the lineup Sunday against Carolina following a three-game absence. The 27-year-old blueliner has three goals, nine points, 49 shots on net, 53 blocks and 42 hits in 33 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Placed on injured reserve
Graves (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Wednesday.
Considering Graves has been labeled week-to-week by the Devils, his placement on injured reserve shouldn't come as a surprise. With fellow blueliner John Marino (upper body) also headed for IR, the club recalled Tyler Wotherspoon from the minors, who should have a chance to play in an upcoming game. For his part, Graves has just two points in his last 19 contests, so his absence is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Is week-to-week
Graves (lower body) is considered week-to-week by Devils coach Lindy Ruff, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.
Graves sustained the injury during the first period of Wednesday's game against Florida. He has three goals and nine points in 33 contests while averaging 18:29 of ice time this season. Nikita Okhotyuk might serve in the Devils' lineup regularly while Graves is unavailable.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Will not play Friday
Graves (lower body) will not play against Boston on Friday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Graves was injured in the opening period Wednesday versus Florida and will be evaluated by doctor's Friday. He has three goals and six assists in 33 games. Graves and John Marino (upper body) are out of the lineup, so the Devils' third pairing will be Kevin Bahl and Nikita Okhotyuk.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Leaves game early
Graves (undisclosed) was injured in the first period of Wednesday's game versus the Panthers, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Graves went hard into the boards on his second shift and needed assistance to get to the locker room. He didn't return after either intermission -- the team hasn't officially ruled him out, but it's unlikely he returns to this contest. With John Marino (upper body) also hurt, if Graves can't play Friday versus the Bruins, the Devils may need to call up another defenseman.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Ryan Graves: Great plus-minus, not much else
Graves had three hits and a plus-1 rating in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Graves' strong positional play is reflected in his plus-19 rating, but he doesn't do much to help out in fantasy otherwise. The 27-year-old blueliner has gone four games without a shot on goal, and Graves boasts modest season totals in goals (three) and points (nine) through 28 games.... See More ... See Less
