Kyle Dubas didn't mince words when discussing Ryan Graves' performance, acknowledging both his potential and the need for improvement.


With Ryan, there's no dancing around it. He was a very good player in Colorado and New Jersey... He came in, and from the beginning, I thought, 'It happens'. Did I expect it to go the whole year? No. Dubas emphasized the importance of the upcoming offseason for Graves, highlighting areas for growth. His strength, which will allow him to be more physical and make stops in the defensive zone, his mobility - he's going to have to push and work on that." Dubas outlined a path forward for Graves, stressing the need for relentless execution.

We have to arm him with the path to get there, and he has to execute it relentlessly, and if he can do that, he will get back to being the player he was when we signed him.
.



It was a tough season for Graves after he was stellar for the New Jersey Devils their run to the second last year. Graves will finish his season with 70 games played and 14 total points (3G-11A). Graves is in the first year of a six-year contract with a $4.5 million cap hit.
