Mikhail Grigorenko scored his fifth goal of the 2016-17 season, but his efforts fell short as the Colorado Avalanche lost 3-2 to the San Jose Sharks in OT on Saturday.
This marks his first goal since a tally in a loss to the Stars on Dec. 29. He's been on a bit of a hot streak lately overall, however, as he now has three points (1G, 2A) in his last four contests. He now has 15 points in 41 GP in 2016-17, barely managing more than one SOG per game (50 in those 41). Jan 22 - 2:56 AM

Mikhail Grigorenko and Eric Gelinas scratched versus Maple Leafs on Thursday.

Through 30 games this season the young veteran has posted just three goals and 10 points along with little else to his credit. Making neither player much of a source of fantasy value, unfortunately.

Mikhail Grigorenko will be a scratch for the Avalanche Wednesday against the Oilers.

Mikhail Grigorenko contributed an assist in Colorado's 4-2 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

Mikhail Grigorenko scored two goals in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday.

Grigorenko's first goal was a thing of beauty, stick handling his way to the slot, before beating Kings goalie Jeff Zatkoff. He added another goal on the power play in the second period. He is now up to three goals during the pre-season and if he continues to perform, he might be worth a dart throw in the last round of deeper leagues.

Mikhail Grigorenko served as a center during an intrasquad game on Sunday.

Grigorenko ended up scoring the lone goal in that contest. He's a natural center, but spent most of the 2015-16 campaign serving as a winger. It will be interesting to see if this is an indication of things to come under new bench boss Jared Bednar, though it could have just been a matter of practicality as the alternatives up the middle were more limited with Matt Duchene, Nathan MacKinnon and Carl Soderberg all unavailable due to the World Cup.
