Igor Grigorenko (born April 9, 1983, in Tolyatti, Soviet Union) is a Russian professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for Ufa Salavat Yulayev in the Russian Elite League. He signed a one-year, entry-level contract with the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL in May, 2007, but was unable to make the team out of training camp. After 5 games in the AHL, Grigorenko returned to Russia.
In 2001, Grigorenko was a member of the Russian World U-18 team. At the tournament he finished second overall in the tournament scoring and was also named to the tournament's first All Star team.
In 2002–03, Grigorenko was the leading scorer with Lada in the Russian Super League with 19 goals and 29 points in 47 regular season games. His 19 goals were also among the top three goalscorers in the league.
Grigorenko helped Russia win the gold medal at the 2003 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and earned championship game MVP honors.
His success with Lada gave him the opportunity to make his debut with the Russian senior national team. Grigorenko posted 7 goals and 8 points in 17 games with the team, including 2 goals and an assist in 7 games at the 2003 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships.
On May 16, 2003, Grigorenko was involved in a serious car accident. He suffered a broken left thigh bone and two fractures in his left shin bone. In addition, complications arose and he developed a fat embolism in his left lung, which is a potentially fatal condition.
Mark Lapush, Grigorenko's agent, said, "They gave him a 10-percent chance to be alive, and he made it. He’s feeling good. He said, 'Mark, trust me, I’m going to play hockey. I’m going to play for Detroit.'"
