The accolades for Quebec Remparts standout and 2012 NHL Entry Draft standout Mikhail Grigorenko continue to pour in.

The Russian import left the Golden Puck Awards, presented annually by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, with an impressive haul of hardware.

Grigorenko was the recipient of the RDS Cup Wednesday, awarded to the QMJHL’s top rookie. The six-foot-two, 190-pound forward beat out teammates Francois Brassard and Anthony Duclair for the award, as well as Brandon Whitney of the Victoriaville Tigres and Halifax Moosheads teammates Zach Fucale and Nathan MacKinnon.

He also captured the Michael-Bossy Trophy as the league’s top draft eligible prospect, beating out Whitney and Martin Frk. He had already received the Michel Bergeron trophy, awarded annually to the best offensive rookie of the year.

Grigorenko was named to the league’s first all-star team, as well as the rookie all-star team.

The Russian import scored 40 goals and added 85 points in his first season of hockey in North America with the Remparts. He is currently fourth in Future Considerations’ ranking for the 2012 draft.
