Galiev will draw into the lineup if T.J. Oshie (illness) is unable to play, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Galiev has not played since Mar. 1 against the Penguins, but with T.J. Oshie (illness) not on the trip for Friday's game in New Jersey, his return to the lineup seems likely. The 24-year-old winger is slated to play on the fourth line with Mike Richards and Daniel Winnik.
Galiev will skate at left wing alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports. Galiev is filling in for Alex Ovechkin (lower body), who was suspended by the NHL for skipping the All-Star game festivities over the weekend. Ovechkin's injury is not believed to be serious, so this prominent assignment for Galiev is likely limited to Tuesday's game only. However, the increase in ice time he will get -- not to mention the quality of his linemates -- gives Galiev some sleeper potential in daily fantasy leagues, so keep him in mind when you fill out your lineup.
Galiev will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Bruins, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Galiev will take Michael Latta's place on the fourth line and is working with the second power-play unit as well. With just two assists in seven games this season, the third-round pick from the 2010 Draft is a reach outside of deeper leagues even with the special teams assignment.
Galiev will play on the third line in Saturday's game against Colorado, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washingtonreports. Galiev will replace the struggling Andre Burakovsky in the lineup. Last playing in a 4-1 win over the Blackhawks on Oct. 15, the 23-year-old Russian has one assist in two games this season and three goals in five games with AHL Hershey. Unless he can stick in the lineup past Saturday, his fantasy value remains quite low.
Galiev was recalled from AHL Hershey on Monday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Galiev was sent down to the AHL for a two-week conditioning stint, but was apparently ready to rejoin the parent club after just a week and a half. The winger has suited up in just two games this year, averaging 9:39 worth of ice time in those contests.
