Mikhail Grabovski, who signed a one year deal with the Washington Capitals this off-season after being bought out by the Toronto Maple Leafs, has quickly become a fan favorite with his lovable personality, his priceless quotes, and solid play on ice. In 42 games this year, Mikhail Grabovski has 32 points. It looks like Mikhail Grabovski might be around for longer than one year. According to his agent, his agent has started conversations with the Capitals about a contract extension.
Mikhail Grabovski’s agent Gary Greenstin says he’s just started conversations with the #Caps about keeping the center in Washington.

Here’s what Greenstein had to say:
“Depends on the management. Coach likes him, we just begin talking about future contract. It’s not easy process. It will take some time I believe… He’s comfortable here. Good coaching staff, he fits here very well but Grabo is very talented center. He’s able to play in lot of organization the same role. He’s a first-two liner, he reads the game very well but we’ll see what’s happening. Most likely he’ll stay here.”
Grabovski has made it clear that money is not an issue and that he cares more about security and being in a good situation is what matters. Re-signing Grabovski would be huge for the Capitals, who have been searching for a second line center for quite some time. I’m sure the Capitals would love to finally answer that problem by extending Mikhail Grabovski.
