Leading your team to a Memorial Cup in your draft year is sure to generate some excitement among scouts and Grubauer did that in 2010 when the Washington Capitals claimed him from the roster of the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires. His road to the NHL was a bit circuitous as he spent a year with the Kingston Frontenacs before moving up to the ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays for 2011-12. Splitting the next season between the ECHL and AHL, he got a quick two-game look from the Capitals and ventured back and forth between Washington and the Hershey Bears for several years. Despite being used on a limited basis for much of his time with the Caps, Grubauer proved to be a reliable backup for starter Braden Holtby. By 2017-18, number 31 was seeing more time in the crease and went 15-10-3 during the regular season before making a pair of appearances as Washington captured its first Stanley Cup championship. On June 22, 2018, he was traded to the Avalanche and he proved to be a perfect addition to Colorado’s lineup thanks to an 18-9-5 record before taking over the net in the playoffs.
