Good to see. He hasn't even been playing for Salzburg for awhile.

It will be good to get him playing again. And we all know the Wolves could use some help up front now.


Salzburg cut him a week ago :/

This is outstanding news.

Brilliant move by the organization, now if we can just do the same for McNally.

nice with kassian gone his size is a big welcome to the team especially with mini mites like Sterling, Davis and Haydar in the lineup. The Wolves need more size up front.

The Wolves have assigned Grenier to the K-Wings.

Trying to give him a bit of a transition period I'm guessing. He's gotta get used to north american hockey again.

They signed a large number of locked out players either NHL or AHL quality and he was much farther down the depth chart than before. Ironic that the lockout ended so soon, but things happen.

Chalk up another assist for Grenier in his 2nd ECHL game with Kalamazoo. He also managed to finish +1 and had one shot in what was a loss to the Gwinnett Gladiators, 4-2.

For the third game in a row, and his 3rd career ECHL game, Grenier picked up an assist for Kalamazoo. He was also a +3 on the night. Kalamzoo defeated the Gwinnett Gladiators 4-3.

Grenier now has 0 goals, 3 assists, 3 points and is a +4 in 3 games in the ECHL. He only has 1 shot on goal in those three games, though.

Grenier had one assist, 5 shots on net and a +1 rating for Kalmazoo in a 4-3 loss to the Evansville IceMen today.

I find it interesting that Grenier continues to put even or + ratings in some high scoring losses. He also made a great defensive play that saved a goal in his one game with the Wolves. I haven't seen him in the ECHL so I can't make any informed judgements but these few points possibly suggest that Grenier has a pretty good defensive game.

Hopefully that's the case. He could also be playing with some good players in good offensive situations hence the +/-, but there may be a good foundation there for to become a good two-way player too. He'll have to impress down there to earn a contract from the Nucks.

Eh, I'm always optimistic about our prospects but I don't consider the ECHL remotely significant. I think staying in Austria might have been better for him that playing in Kalamazoo.

It may be an over evaluation but he has been very consistant with his few games. he moved from austria, joined a new team in kalamazoo, went to chicago for a short period, came back and produced again. That's how i'm looking at it, and i'm sure some don't agree. But you have to be optimistic if you're going to follow prospects :lol:

Grenier registered an assist, 5 shots on net and a +1 rating and amassed 12 PIMS in a 4-3 OT Kalamazoo loss to the Bakersfield Condors today. His PIMS consisted of a two minute holding minor and a ten minute misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct.

He didn't really have a choice - Red Bull Salzburg basically gave him the boot as there wasn't going to be any icetime for him.

He's nowhere near as physical as Kass. He's more of a middle six skill and speed guy, in a 6'5 frame.

I would say that Antropov is probably the top of his upside. He's a much more rush style player though, really fast for someone his size and although he's 6'5", I don't think he'll ever top 225, he's got a lanky frame. I'd say rather than Antropov his upside is a 6'5" Chris Higgins.

Great game for Grenier today! He had a goal and 2 assists, 3 shots on net, 2 PIMS and a +3 rating for Kalamazoo in a 5-1 win over the Fort Wayne Komets.

His totals on the season are now 1 goal, 9 assists, 10 points and a +10 rating in 10 games. Impressive.

Grenier another good game goal and an assist. Leads the team in PPG 12 in 1. 2G 10A +10 rating. That's pretty great I have to say, he and Mallet seem to play better when they are on the same team :) Hope he gets a chance with the wolves once the K wings are done their season!
