Frankly, I don't think he's NHL ready anyway.

To put it simply, what's the problem with playing junior hockey when you are 18? One more season in QMJHL can only do him good.
It is a problem if you can play senior hockey. Another example, Slepyshev, born 94, TOI around 15 min. Yes, it is so bad for 18 y old player.

If Grigs did not make KHL, he would play VHL or MHL which are the same as Q
