Mikhail Grigorenko is heading to the KHL through a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow.
Grigorenko was taken with the 12th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but he hasn't worked out in the NHL. The 23-year-old forward had 10 goals and 23 points in 75 games with Colorado in 2016-17. After that showing, the Avalanche decided not to make him a qualifying offer, which led to him testing the UFA market. Fri, Jul 7, 2017 03:57:00 PM

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).

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.

Mikhail Grigorenko has inked a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Colorado Avalanche.

As a result, Grigorenko's scheduled arbitration hearing for Friday is no longer necessary. He had requested a salary of $1.65 million and the Avalanche countered at $950,000, so they basically settled on the middle ground. Grigorenko has plenty of potential but he also has a lot to prove. He had an underwhelming six goals and 27 points in 74 contests last season.
