The New York Islanders will be without forward Mikhail Grabovski when they face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, according to a report from Arthur Staple of Newsday Long Island.

Grabovski was injured after being on the receiving end of a heavy open-ice hit from San Jose Sharks tough guy John Scott on Thursday. He left the game and did not return.

It was also reported following the game that his injury was not a concussion; identified only as an upper body injury.

In four games with the Islanders this season, Grabovski has two goals and three points. He signed a four-year deal with the Islanders in July.
