Grenier made his professional debut playing with EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Hockey League during the 2012–13 season. After 25 games with the Red Bulls, Grenier opted to return to North America, signing an AHL deal for the remainder of the season with the Canucks AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves on January 6, 2013.

In his fourth season within the Canucks organization during the 2015–16 season, Grenier's development was rewarded in receiving his first NHL recall on November 18, 2015. He made his NHL debut with the Canucks later that night in a 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre. On March 14, 2016 Grenier was recalled to the Vancouver Canucks, as Brendan Gaunce had been reassigned to the Utica Comets.
On July 1, 2017, Grenier signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Florida Panthers after he did not receive a contract offer from the Canucks. He was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds for the duration of the 2017–18 season, notching a professional high 20 goals in amassing 44 points in 72 games.
Following the conclusion his contract with the Rocket, Grenier as a free agent opted to continue his career in Europe, agreeing to a one-year contract for the 2019–20 season with German outfit, Iserlohn Roosters of the DEL on October 15, 2019. After agreeing to a one-year contract extension with the Roosters, on February 3, 2020, Grenier joined Lausanne HC on loan to provide depth for the final playoffs push. He made 10 appearances with Lausanne before the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, later returning to resume his contract with Iserlohn.
