Top 13 NHL Draft Busts since 2010

These junior hockey players never lived up to the hype.

Mikhail Grigorenko

Mikhail Grigorenko was drafted 12th overall in the 2012 Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres. The center had a nice career in the QMJHL racking up 178 points and a +60 plus/minus rating in the 115 games. His success continued in the AHL where he put up 40 points in 52 games.

He spent five seasons in the NHL from 2012 to 2017, but never lived up to expectations, compiling just 64 points and a -26 plus/minus rating in 217 games with the Avalanche and Sabres.

Grigorenko has moved on to the KHL, inking a three-year deal with CSKA Moscow.   His NHL days are most likely behind him.
