In 331 regular-season AHL games over seven pro seasons, Graovac has tallied 87 goals and 97 assists for 184 points playing for Iowa, Hershey, Stockton and Utica.

Originally a seventh-round pick by Minnesota in the 2011 NHL Draft, Graovac has nine goals and two assists in 70 NHL outings with Minnesota, Washington and Vancouver.
