    Just curious did Wings sign him? If not, do they lose his rights and is he healthy?

    The Wings did not sign him and I'm about 100% certain that they don't lose his rights. Why am I certain? Because if his rights were in jeopardy they would have signed him. He's still big in the Wings' future plans.

    At last report he's still coming back from the accident and is probably approaching 100% health here pretty soon. The Wings wanted him to play one more year in Russia to get comfortable again rather than having the comeback be in a new country and league. He's beefed up as well, though allegedly hasn't lost his speed. He's around 5'10-11" and 220lbs now. Here's hoping it's mostly muscle mass.

    Igor is one of my favorite prospects.

    This coming from a leaf fan.

    He's extremely underrated. i'd take him over many overhyped prospects. Perry for one...

    Don't know why he's sporting the Capitals' t-shirt but here's a recent pic to illustrate his weight gain.

    compare that to a pic post-draft/pre-accident.

    You do know that people faces tend to get a little fuller and they tend to gain a little weight between 18 -22?

    Seriously, his hockey is said to be improving. And I wouldn't put him in the "Brett Hull, Moo, Moo" category yet.

    220lbs is really f'in heavy at 5'10-11", especially for a guy that plays a speed game. If he carries it well and it doesn't hinder his play in any way more power to him as it'll make him a hell of a lot harder to contain. Like I said here's hoping it's muscle mass.

    From Severstal site, 178cm/98kg = 5'10/215

    Whatever it is muscles or not but seems it doesn't hurt his preseason stats: 8 games - 7 points (2+5) http://www.metallurg.ru/base/player/1324/

    And little addition:
    http://severstalclub.ru/modules.php...=article&sid=1842&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0

    This is a part from interview with Severstal's head coach Vladimir Pluschev:

    - Many experts note, that at this stage of preparation to the season Severstal simply flies on the ice comparing to your adversaries. But when the regular season starts your club should fall into the functional hole. Have you anything to say to the sceptics?

    - We have made a deep medical survey of our team after the tournament in St.Petersburg with the attraction of specialists from Moscow. Their summary was that our players have a big reserve under the current work we do that they could "fly on the ice" even better. And the functional holes during the season are almost inevitable. But we'll try to avoid them if it will be possible.

    -------------------------

    So the team "flies" and Grigorenko is one of their best scorers (alongside with Trubachev and Polushin). Though I have not seen those tournaments Severstal played in and the stats can't say the whole story.
