Grenier finalized a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Canucks on Tuesday. Grenier is still searching for the first NHL point after appearing in a mere six contests last season. The 24-year-old has been significantly more productive in the minors where he registered 16 goals and 32 helpers in 69 outings. It is unlikely the winger will make a huge jump in ice time this upcoming season, so fantasy owners can mostly ignore his contract extension.
Grenier was reassigned to AHL Utica on Friday. With Derek Dorsett (undisclosed) now healthy and back in the lineup Friday against the Blues, the Canucks are no longer in need of Grenier's services as a depth forward. The 24-year-old winger registered five shots on goal and four hits in five games during his brief stint with the big club.
Grenier was summoned by the Canucks on Monday and will draw into the evening's lineup against the Jets. Grenier made his NHL debut with the Canucks earlier in the campaign, and he put four shots on goal in his one opportunity with the parent organization. It's possible he will slot into a top-six role temporarily with the news that Alex Burrows (undisclosed) will miss Monday's contest, but he probably won't see enough ice time to be worth consideration in season-long formats. However, he could be a sneaky play in daily formats if available for use.
Grenier was reassigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday. Grenier was recalled Monday so that he would be available for Wednesday's matchup with Carolina if Brandon Prust (leg) was unable to play. Prust is now fully expected to suit up for Wednesday's tilt against the Hurricanes, so the Canucks are no longer in need of Grenier as a source of insurance. The 24-year-old winger has played in one game with Vancouver this season, logging four shots on goal in that contest.
Grenier was recalled from AHL Utica on Monday. This will be Grenier's second NHL recall, and it comes on the heels of Brandon Prust's lower-body injury. Grenier is a big-bodied winger who will likely slot into a bottom-six role if Prust is unable to go on Monday.
