Igor Grigorenko (born April 9, 1983, in Tolyatti, Soviet Union) is a Russian professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for Salavat Yulaev Ufa in the Russian Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
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, he was drafted 62nd overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings.
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 goal scorers in the league.
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.'"
He signed a one-year, entry-level contract with the Detroit Red Wings in May, 2007, but was unable to make the team out of training camp. After 5 games in the American Hockey League with affiliate the Grand Rapids Griffins, Grigorenko returned to Russia.
