Michail Jurjevič Hraboúski (Belarusian: Міхаіл Юр'евiч Грабоўскі; born January 31, 1984), better known as Mikhail Grabovski (Russian: Михаил Грабовский), is a Belarusian professional ice hockey player and an alternate captain currently playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Grabovski was born in Potsdam, East Germany, where his father, Yury, worked in construction. The family returned to their native Belarus (then a Soviet Socialist Republic) when he was three years old. Grabovski was trained by Russian-educated coaches in the Yunost Minsk youth hockey program.

Grabovski was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens 150th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft and played his first NHL game with Montreal on January 6, 2007, against the New York Rangers. He played three games in the NHL before being sent back down to Montreal's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.
