Everyone knew Mikhail Grigorenko was a special talent offensively, but questions surrounding his effort level and heritage caused his draft stock to plummet, and the Buffalo Sabres snagged him in the 2012 Entry Draft with the 12th overall selection.

After 12 games in the new QMJHL season, that pick may end up being the steal of the draft.

Grigorenko currently has 24 points in just 12 games, putting him on a 2 point-per-game pace for the mathematically challenged among us. His 10 goals and 14 assists in 12 contests matches the pace set by the league leaders despite playing in fewer games, and equally impressive is the fact that he's scored at least one point in all 12 of his games this season, matching his season high point streak from last year.
