  • Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Wishes to stay in Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/9/17) Galchenyuk, who's a pending restricted free agent, expressed his desire to remain with the Canadiens. "I love this team, I love this city, I love the fans - I love everything about Montreal," he said. "It's an exciting place to play."

    The Wisconsin-born center was limited to 61 games this season, as he dealt with two different injuries to his right knee. His scoring dipped by 13 goals compared to a full campaign in 2015-16, but Galchenyuk managed a career-high 27 assists. Few NHLers can match the youngster's efficiency; he's accumulated 204 points (89 goals, 115 helpers) despite averaging less than 16:30 over his first five years in the league. Assuming Galchenyuk re-ups with the Habs, he'll be a mainstay on the man advantage.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Collects helper against Cats

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/17) Galchenyuk notched a first-period assist and registered three shots on net during Monday's win over Florida.

    Averaging just 13:37 of ice time through his past five games, Galchenyuk's role has been a serious impediment to his fantasy upside. He's still posted an impressive 16 goals and 43 points through 58 games, but an uptick in minutes would almost certainly be accompanied by better offensive numbers. The talented youngster's keeper/dynasty owners will want to remain patient and hope he receives a more featured role in 2017-18.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: 'Demotion' no obstacle Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Galchenyuk skated 17:02 and scored the Habs' lone goal in Thursday's 4-1 home loss to Carolina.

    For all that he was technically on the third line with Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Shaw, Galchenyuk saw the third-most ice time among Montreal forwards -- just 17 seconds fewer than minutes leader Max Pacioretty. Galchenyuk meshed well with his new mates, as the three of them combined on his goal and generally looked good throughout the game. Now that it's been demonstrated that he's not the one bringing the Habs' top line down, Galchenyuk may return to that assignment, but he's clearly going to get his minutes either way.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Dropped from top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Galchenyuk skated on the third line as a winger during Wednesday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Twelve hours after coach Claude Julien told reporters that Galchenyuk had not played well in Tuesday's loss to Detroit, the one-time center found himself on a wing with center Andrew Shaw and winger Artturi Lehkonen. Galchenyuk won just 15 of 48 faceoffs over the last three games, and the top line produced just two goals over the last nine. Julien saw the failing chemistry between the top trio, and his natural coaching instinct was to break them up and hopefully get Galchenyuk on track in a less demanding position. We suspect he'll remain on the top power-play unit, so there's still some value in deploying Galchenyuk in fantasy lineups.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Assists stretch streak to five games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/17) Galchenyuk delivered two assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

    That stretches his scoring streak to five games and seven points (three goals, four assists). Galchenyuk is starting to emerge as the potent offensive threat that he appeared to be last season. The Habs have still not determined if they see him as a wing or a centerman. But until then, Galchenyuk's production is currently good enough to be deployed in either role.
