Galchenyuk tallied a power-play goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating and five shots during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Capitals. Galchenyuk has been terrific for the Coyotes since returning to the lineup on Oct. 23 with three goals and eight points in his first nine games with his new team. The 24-year-old is back to his natural position at center and playing well with Clayton Keller on the top line, so keep him rolling.
Galchenyuk produced a man-advantage goal in Monday's 5-2 home loss to the Flyers. This was Arizona's first loss since Galchenyuk returned from a lower-body injury Oct. 23. Showing excellent chemistry with 2018 Calder Trophy finalist Clayton Keller on the top line, Chucky's crafted two goals and three assists over six games.
Galchenyuk scored a goal and added an assist Tuesday in a 5-1 win over Ottawa. In the past three games, Galchenyuk has scored four points, finally finding the back of the net in this contest. If he's available, now is the time to add him because it seems that he's made the adjustment to the Coyotes' brand of hockey and has become a solid weapon for Arizona.
Galchenyuk skated for 15:01 in his Coyotes debut Tuesday, factoring into a 4-1 road win over the Blue Jackets. Deployed as the top-line center at even strength, Galchenyuk was on the ice for the lone goal permitted, plus he recorded only one shot, but the ice-time figure was right in line with how often he'd been iced by the Habs prior to moving to the desert in June. Be patient with Galchenyuk as he gets fully engrained in the Coyotes system.
Galchenyuk (lower body) will make his season debut versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. In a figurative sense, Galchenyuk couldn't return a minute too soon, as the Coyotes have struggled to a 2-5-0 start to the new season. Chucky -- who dropped 19 goals and 32 assists over 82 games with the Habs in 2017-18 -- figures to slide right in as the top-line center with Lawson Crouse and Clayton Keller at his sides. Naturally, that assignment comes with a spot on the No. 1 power play as well, but the team ranks 30th in the league in that special team situation, so don't expect immediate results.
