2012 NHL DRAFT: One-game Scouting Report for Mikhail Grigorenko

Mikhail Grigorenko is a 6'2", 185 lbs left-handed centre playing for the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. Grigorenko was the second-ranked North American skater on Central Scouting's mid-term rankings. He is a big centre with soft-hands. This one-game scouting report is from a 4-1 loss to the St. John Sea Dogs on February 17th, 2012.

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.



OVERALL GRADE

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

Most of Grigorenko's events during the game occurred in the neutral-zone.
