MOSCOW, April 4. / Corr. TASS Rustam Sharafutdinov /. The likelihood of return of the striker club of the National Hockey League (NHL) "Colorado" Mikhail Grigorenko in the Continental Hockey League (KHL) this year depends on the family situation of the player. This opinion was expressed to TASS by the player's agent Valery Gushchin.
Earlier, CSKA President Igor Esmantovich told the Championship that the club would attempt to return Grigorenko, given that the NHL refused to let its players go to the 2018 Olympics in South Korean Pyeongchang. 22-year-old Grigorenko's contract with Colorado ends this summer.
“The issue of returning was considered a year ago, but I don’t think it will work out, because he has a difficult marital status. He had a second child, his wife is Canadian herself, so this is a purely family issue, which is decided, apparently, at the family council. - said Gushchin. - A year ago they agreed, the contract with CSKA was already in hand, but it all ended in the fact that he stayed. He may agree, but still the family decides."
Grigorenko has been playing for Colorado for the second year. This season, he played 72 matches in which he scored 22 points (9 + 13).
