RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Grigorenko was one of the pieces the Avs acquired as a part of the offseason blockbuster trade that sent two-way center Ryan O Reilly to the Sabres. The 21-year-old joins a Colorado team that is already loaded with young offensive building blocks in Gabriel Landeskog, Matt Duchene, and Nathan MacKinnon, so the opportunity to contribute in a top-six role with the parent club won't exist at the outset. That said, Grigorenko is a gifted, though inconsistent player, and even though he only has six goals and 14 points in 68 career NHL games, he could thrive in a system with far greater forward talent than he skated alongside in Buffalo. If the 6-foot-3 Russian can gel better with his new organization, it may not take long for him to finally make good on his vast potential. Grigorenko's lack of NHL production to date makes it best for fantasy players to take a wait-and-see approach before investing, but those in very deep leagues could do worse than using an end-of-draft dart on the center. The big man has all the tools to become a fantasy stud, and now that he's been placed on an up-and-coming squad with a more favorable supporting cast, he may finally emerge as a post-hype sleeper.

2014-15

The talented Russian playmaker has the most high-end offensive skill set of any Sabres prospect, but too often shirks defensive responsibilities and fails to do what is asked of him. The Sabres have jerked Grigorenko around over the past two seasons, playing him on three different teams each year, causing him to be unable to find his groove. Entering the final year of his entry-level contract, Grigorenko has plenty to prove and will most likely start at the AHL level. The former Quebec Remparts star tallied four assists in nine games in the regular season with Rochester last year.

2013-14

Considering his dominance at the junior level (139 points in 92 games over two seasons), Grigorenko had a tough adjustment to the NHL last season. He posted one goal and five points in 25 games, but wasnt placed in a scoring line role by former head coach Lindy Ruff. With Grigorenko restricted from playing in the AHL and having nothing left to prove in the QMJHL, the Sabres will likely keep the 19-year old Russian in the NHL for the entire season. His potential is incredibly high and the opportunity will be there to produce, so those in keeper leagues should be ready to pounce if hes still available.

2012-13

Grigorenko, the 12th overall selection in June's NHL entry draft, is considered NHL-ready and will fight for a scoring role with the Sabres this fall. A big pivot is exactly what the Sabres need considering the sizes of Tyler Ennis and Cody Hodgson; Grigorenko's 85 points in 59 games with Quebec of the QMJHL cemented his status as one of hockey's top offensive prospects. However, he is only 18 years of age, so temper your enthusiasm in one-year leagues and keep close tabs on him in keeper formats.
