Please keep in mind that this is only a one-game scouting report and should not be used to determine anything more than the player's performance in this particular game. That said, top-ranked players in last year's draft were producing risk/reward ratings between 1.90 and 2.30, and overall grades in the high 70's and low 80's.
Grigorenko produced a below-average overall grade of 63. He struggled in the defensive-zone, and while on the powerplay. His events per-minute played were also quite low. This could be explained by the quality of opposition, and also by Grigorenko's perimeter play during the game scouted.
OVERALL RISK/REWARD RATING
Grigorenko produced a below-average overall risk/reward of 0.86, and an overall ratio of only 1.62 successful plays for every 1 unsuccessful play. His play on the powerplay substantially hurt his overall rating; particularly his inability to complete some simple, short passes during the game scouted. Most of Grigorenko's events during the game occurred in the neutral-zone.
