• In his first season with the Quebec Remparts, he led all Quebec Major Junior Hockey League rookies with 45 goals and 85 points (40-45--85) and finished third in the league with eight game-winning goals.

• Grigorenko represented Russia at the 2012 World Junior Championships, recording five points (2-3--5) in six games, helping Russia capture a silver medal. As a member of Team Russia at the 2011 World Under-18 Championships, he led his team to a bronze medal, leading the tournament with 14 assists (4-14--18) in seven games. He also represented Russia at the 2010 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge where he scored ten points (6-4--10) in six games and was selected as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

• In 2010-11, Grigorenko collected 35 points (17-18--35) in 43 games while playing for CSKA-2 where he competed against players as old as 22. He was selected second overall in the 2011 CHL Import Draft -- the Remparts traded up twice to secure him.

• Grigorenko first began playing hockey at age five and in the beginning he didn’t enjoy it because “he wasn’t very good”. His brother, Yuri, also played hockey, competing in Russia and Belarus from 2001 to 2006.

NHL Central Scouting’s David Gregory
“He's the type of player that controls the whole pace of the game. He can play with the puck at the same pace he plays without the puck. He sees the ice and opportunities really well. He can hang onto it longer than most players; some players might feel that
they have to move it quickly, but Mikhail has the patience and the ability to see opportunities and let them develop, which is a special skill. He's got a big, long reach and an ability to move in traffic with his size (6-foot-3.25, 200). He's the kind of forward who will control the play and make things happen."
