Mikhail Grigorenko: Back With Sabres

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: With his junior season over, Grigorenko has been called back up to Buffalo in consideration for the final stretch of games, according to the Associated Press.

Recommendation: The Sabres are still mathematically alive for a playoff spot, so given his struggles earlier in his rookie season with the club, we don't see the first-rounder getting a ton of minutes right away. When and if the Sabres are officially eliminated, however, there's a chance Grigorenko could get a decent audition with an eye toward where he'll fit in next year. That said, the Sabres might just let him get that valuable time in Rochester of the AHL the rest of this season. For now, though, he's with the big club.
