Mikhail Grigorenko Refusing To Report To Quebec Remparts

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

The Mikhail Grigorenko saga may be taking a fresh, bizarre twist as the 19-year-old is refusing to report to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior League. Agent Jay Grossman confirmed to The Buffalo News via email that Grigorenko will not report but did not comment on my inquiries about what's next, including a possible look at the KHL.

The reports first came from Kathleen Lavoie of La Presse, who covers the Remparts for La Presse.

Grigorenko, remember, is  not eligible to go to Rochester -- which is probably the best spot for him at this point. Players with eligibility left in a Canadian junior circuit cannot be sent to the AHL, which can put 19-year-olds like Grigorenko in limbo. There's no such agreement with the United States Hockey League, which is why an 18-year-old Zemgus Girgensons could play all last season with the Amerks.

I would never imagine a 19 year old would act so immature.
