Mikhail Grigorenko picked up his third goal of the season in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dallas.

It was a pretty goal as he out-waited Antti Niemi's best flop. Though with just 13 points so far this season, Grigorenko probably belongs on the waiver wire.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be in the lineup Wednesday against Buffalo.

He has been a healthy scratch for the past three games, but coach Patrick Roy is giving Grigorenko a chance to play against the team that drafted him 12th overall in 2012. He has produced just two goals and 12 points in 40 games with the Avalanche this year.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Jets.

Joining him in the press box are Nate Guenin and Andrew Bodnarchuk. This is Grigorenko's third consecutive game as a healthy scratch. The 21-year-old has two goals and 12 points in 40 games this season.

Coach Patrick Roy has elected to forego any lineup changes for Saturday's match with Columbus.

Which means that Mikhail Grigorenko, Nate Guenin, and Andrew Bodnarchuk will each be watching from the stands tonight. Unfortunately, there isn't a lick of fantasy value to speak of between the three. A frustrating realization for Avs fans who were excited to have Grigorenko come on board.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against New Jersey.

Grigorenko hadn't been scratched since Dec. 7. The 21-year-old has two goals and 12 points in 40 games this season. Nate Guenin and Andrew Bodnarchuk will also watch the game from the press box.
Jan 14 - 9:08 PM

If Gabriel Landeskog can't answer the bell Saturday night due to back spasms, Mikhail Grigorenko will take his place on Colorado's top line alongside Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon.

So says Avs' coach Patrick Roy. Roy has a tough-love approach with Grigorenko who often needs to be prodded to compete. There is no questioning Grigorenko's talent, though. And Roy knows that having coached the young forward in the QMJHL. If you have daily transactions, Grigorenko is a roster option for Saturday.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be a scratch when the Avalanche host the Pittsburgh Penguins

The former Sabre pivot is caught in a pointless funk and one goal in 2015-16 will be scratched in his second straight after dressing every game since a three game press box stint to start the season. Joining him in the press box is Zach Redmond with his fourth straight as a scratch.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Wild.

Mikhail Grigorenko played between Andreas Martinsen and Jarome Iginla on Saturday against Washington.

Mikhail Grigorenko scored a goal and three points in Saturday's 6-1 win over Montreal.

Grigorenko did all his damage in the first period as he opened the scoring and assisted on both of Nathan MacKinnon's goals. The 21-year-old has one goal and six points in 14 games. He'll be a good fantasy bet if he keeps getting opportunities on the top line with MacKinnon and Matt Duchene.

It looks as if Mikhail Grigorenko will start Saturday's game against Montreal where he finished Thursday's game against Boston--on the top line.

The 21-year-old winger will line up alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Matt Duchene. Grigorenko is obviously being rewarded for settting up Duchene with the game-winning goal against the Bruins. Perhaps the light has finally gone on. The time may be right to take a shot and pick up Grigorenko.
