Grabovsky’s third hundred
By Dmitry Komashko
The match between Toronto and Philadelphia, in which Grabovsky’s club suffered a slashing defeat of 1:7, saw Mikhail score the only goal for the Canadian team. It was his 317th match in the NHL regular championships. To date, he has scored 85 goals and made 115 passes resulting in goals, earning him 50 (23+27) points across 72 matches this season.
Grabovsky is the third highest scoring Belarusian in the NHL, behind Nashville forward Andrey Kostitsyn (27) who takes the lead with 218 points, and Belarusian hockey legend, defender Ruslan Saley (who tragically died in an air crash near Yaroslavl, together with the Lokomotiv team). Saley earned 204 points across 917 matches, playing for Anaheim, Florida, Colorado and Detroit.
Fourth place is occupied by Vladimir Tsyplakov, followed by the younger Kostitsyn brother, Sergey, 25, who also plays for Nashville.
