2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Eric Gryba in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Gryba secured a one-year, two-way contract with the Devils in July of 2018. The deal is worth $700,000 in the NHL and $300,000 in the AHL.
Given tryout

September 11, 2019
Gryba will join the Flames on a professional tryout agreement for the preseason, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
ANALYSIS
The 31-year-old defenseman spent last season with the Devils organization, drawing into 10 games at the NHL level and and additional 47 contests with AHL Binghamton. Gryba has never exceeded 12 points in a season at either level, and at best he will serve as organizational depth if he shows well enough to earn a contract. Gryba will likely be competing with Andrew MacDonald for a roster spot, as both defenders are on tryouts.

Gryba is not sure to be a fixture in Edmonton's top six. Last season, he saw just 40 games and he's not expected to take on a larger role this year. Even when he has played more games, his production was middling at best. His career-high offensive marks are two goals and 12 points.
Perhaps in another era, the 6-foot-4, 228-pound Gryba would be a hot commodity, but teams value speed, mobility and finesse more than ever. Despite appearing in 53 games and scoring six points for the Oilers this past season, Gryba was not a particularly sought after free agent. He’s a stay-at-home defenseman without a lot of upside, but because he is also a right-handed shot there will always be a market for him. Teams just have to realize that he doesn’t bring a lot to the table.
Grbya was acquired by the Oilers on draft weekend from the Senators in exchange for a fourth-round pick. In 165 games for Ottawa, Gryba only scored four goals and 25 points. He'll fit in as a depth defenseman for his new squad, but don’t expect him to notice an uptick in his offensive production.
Gryba only recorded two goals and four assists in 33 games last season, mostly due to his defense-first style. He's a solid player and will most likely play almost every game this season, but he's not going to burst out for a ton of points. With a minus-3 rating to go along with his lack of offensive production, Gryba isn't a viable option in most fantasy leagues.
Gryba has been considered one of Ottawa's more underrated defensive projects the past couple of years, but it's now become time for him to make a real challenge for at least a part-time role with the big club. He's a big, mean defensive blueliner who likes to make life tough for opposing forwards. While not the best skater, he is able to compensate with decent positional play. He's one of several defensive prospects who should challenge for playing time in Ottawa in 2012-13.
Gryba spent his first full season at the pro level in 2010-11, playing in 66 games for the Binghamton Senators where he recorded three goals and four assists and was a plus-7. At 6'3" and 214 pounds, Gryba is a physical, shutdown defenseman who skates fairly well for a big man. He's close to NHL-ready now, but will likely spend one more year at the AHL level due to the current logjam on Ottawa's blueline.
While he doesn't get the same press as Ottawa's other defensive prospects, Gryba is very close to being NHL-ready. He's big, tough, and can skate well for a big man. Gryba plays a very calm and positionally sound game, but will step up into the offensive zone if he sees an opening. He'll likely start the season in the AHL, but could see some action with the big club in 2010-11 should injuries occur on Ottawa's blueline. Look for him to crack the NHL fulltime in 2011-12.
