Phillip Grubauer Activated From Injured Reserve by Seattle Kraken


Nov 19, 2022

The Seattle Kraken activated Philipp Grubauer from injured reserve, the Kraken official website reports.

Grubauer has been out of the lineup since Oct. 21 due to a lower-body injury. The question for the Kraken will be, will Grubauer get his starting job back? There are two problems. One, he got off to a horrible start this season with a 3.77 GAA and .860 save percentage in four games. Sure, that’s a small sample size, but Grubauer wasn’t much more impressive last season with a 3.16 GAA and .889 save percentage in 55 games. Those numbers would put a lesser goalie in the AHL.

The other problem would be Martin Jones. He has a 2.33 GAA and a .912 save percentage this season. It might be hard to justify to your players if you start Grubauer over Jones.

The Kraken will host the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. The Kraken are -134 (-0.5) on the puck line, and -134 on the money line, with an over/under of six, over (-110), and under (-110) versus the Kings on Saturday. You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on FanDuel Sportsbook.
