It looks as if Grachev has this "ENTRY-LEVEL SLIDE". His ELC kicked in this past season.

how does this "ENTRY-LEVEL SLIDE" work according to a prospect's ELC kicking in at a certain time?
Basically if you sign before the age of 20 and don't play in the NHL for more than 9 games, the contract "slides" to the following year until the player is 20. CHL players can't play in the AHL until they turn 20, but imports like Grachev/Anisimov can. Thus, grachev's 19 year-old season in Hartford didn't count towards his ELC, nor did Anisimov's. A more extreme example of this is Niklas Bergfors who was drafted in '05 and had his first contract expire last year, playing 3 years in the AHL in the meantime.
