In a summer when more than 150 free agents went on the auction block on July 1, Brian McGrattan may have been one of the least likely players to find another NHL home.
Quietly, and away from the spotlight with the equally troubled Phoenix Coyotes, the 27-year-old enforcer struggled last season in more ways than one, failing at first to dress for games and then, according to members of the team’s staff, missing practice. In December, McGrattan voluntarily entered the league’s substance abuse and behavioural health (SABH) program, spending three months in a rehab facility before returning to the ice in mid-March.
