Khan(!) had this story ready for a few days, it would appear. Plenty of reaction from Kenny The Boy Wonder.
The 5-foot-10, 209-pound left wing is no longer the Wings’ top prospect, but he still has an intriguing set of skills. Next season, the Wings will see if he’s ready to play in the NHL. The club has signed Grigorenko to a one-year entry level contract worth $858,800. He’ll be competing for a job in training camp in Traverse City this fall.
“He was a real top prospect for us a number of years ago but unfortunately had that accident,’’ Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “He’s had a couple of years where he’s been able to play and get healthy. We feel it’s time to come over and see where he’s at.’‘
Holland says the timing was right, that Grigorenko’s as healthy as he’s going to get and that the opportunity is his to take advantage of.
What he doesn’t say is this: We’re going to need another dependable forward when Bobby says goodbye.
