Observations:

 

Jan 2014 -
Grenier has gone from playing mainly ECHL last year to a top liner in the AHL this year. The acceleration in his development has been a bit of a surprising, but the Canucks obtaining their own affiliate and surrounding the 6'5 forward with talent certainly helped. He is physical on the forecheck but is still learning to use his size effectively. He is likely on the Canucks short list in terms of call-ups and could see some NHL time as early as this year. - Austin Wallace

 

July 2012 – Grenier has signed in Austria to play against professional men and the Canucks could not be happier.  He will get a new experience and be able to develop his game without getting stuck in a log jam of talent in the AHL for Chicago. It is an irregular path to the NHL, but is not a knock on his potential or talent. Jason Banks

 

May, 2012 – As with most big forwards, Alexandre Grenier’s development has been slow but he is starting to hit his stride.  He only made it in the QMJHL at age 19, but showed enough to be drafted by Vancouver the following summer in the 2011 draft. This season was a breakout campaign as he scored 25 goals and 64 points in 64 games with Halifax. He will need time to develop in the AHL and has some stiff competition ahead of him in the Canucks’ organization but if he catches on his size will be an asset next to the skill players in Vancouver.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Grenier has fair upside and more than enough size but is likely to spend his first few years in the NHL in a depth role. He could put up ok numbers for a third/fourth liner as soon as next year. He doesn't hit as often as his size might indicate.
