Grigorenko, who earned the game's #2 star, showed his playmaking skills in the first 40-minutes with a pair of deft feeds that resulted in goals by Anthony Duclair ('13). In between the helpers, the 6'3 pivot roofed a power play goal early in the second period to give the Remparts a 4-1 lead. Grigorenko rounded out his effort with two shots on goal and a 60% success rate at the faceoff circle (15/25).
In Finland, Joel Armia skated on a line with Tuomas Pihlman and Mika Niemi but was unable to score as Assat defeated HPK 4-3 in a shootout to advance to the Hämeenlinna tournament finals. Former Sabre Mike Ryan scored a regulation goal for the Aces before connecting for the shootout winner. Assat will battle SaiPa on Saturday to conclude the tourney.
