Marc-André Gragnani (born March 11, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

He played junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) for P.E.I. Rocket and his minor hockey for the Dauphins de Deux-Rives. He was drafted in the third round, 87th overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres and signed a professional contract with the Sabres in June 2007.

Although originally drafted as a defenceman, Gragnani shifted to the left wing position during his first professional season.[1] He made his NHL debut on February 23, 2008 for the Sabres.

In April 2009, he established a new record for Portland defencemen with 51 points in the regular season. He also set the Portland franchise record for assists by a defenceman in a single season with 42. In 2011, he broke both of his own records, by registering 48 assists and 60 points, in a single season, as a defenceman.

Gragnani was called up to the parent Buffalo Sabres in March 2011. His first NHL goal was a game-winning overtime goal in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes on April 3, 2011.
