Darcy Regier has just announced Mikhail Grigorenko is staying the rest of the season. Regier said Grigorenko, the team's No. 1 pick last June and the 12th overall, will be in the lineup tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
It will be Grigorenko's sixth game of the season, meaning his entry-level contract kicks in and he will not return to the Quebec Remparts. He will make a pro-rated $925,000 this season.
Here is the audio of Regier's session with reporters, followed by chats with Grigorenko and Lindy Ruff.
More to come.
