Gallagher has 22 goals, 21 assists and a team-high 226 shots while averaging 16:55 of ice time per game over 59 contests in 2019-20.
Depending on the state of play in the NHL following the suspension of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic, it looks like Gallagher's run of 30-goal seasons will end at two. However, three straight 20-goal seasons is a notable achievement for the forward, who was a fifth-round draft pick (147th overall) in 2010. Despite losing ice time to a head injury, the feisty forward leads Montreal in shots by a wide margin and is tied with Tomas Tatar for the team lead in goals. He's the goal-scoring star of the team, but the injury and a lackluster power play (17.7 percent, 22nd) have contributed to Gallagher's reduced scoring. The team could use scoring depth, but Gallagher is part of a top productive line. He'll return in 2020-21 along with Tatar and Phillip Danault, all of whom will be in the final year of their contracts, and Gallagher will be in a position to reach 30 markers again.
Per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Gallagher (illness) is on the ice for morning skate, which suggests he'll return to action Saturday against the Panthers.
Gallagher missed Thursday's game against Tampa Bay due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 27-year-old winger will return to a top-six role and a spot on Montreal's first power-play unit against Florida.

Gallagher is dealing with an illness ahead of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The Canadiens have yet to officially rule Gallagher out, so his status against the Lightning will likely boil down to a game-time decision, but he should be considered questionable at best at this point. If he's unable to go, the Canadiens will either have to roll with 11 forwards and seven defensemen or promote a skater from their AHL affiliate ahead of puck drop.

Gallagher sat out Tuesday's contest because of a lower-body issue that also forced him out of practice Monday. Fortunately, it appears the problem was of the short-term variety and the 27-year-old winger should assume his usual spot in the top six and on the power-play unit for the Habs.

He scored two minutes into the game, his 19th of the season, giving the winger four goals in the seven games since his return.

Gallagher recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Gallagher has two goals and an assist in three games since his return from a head injury that kept him out for most of January. The winger is up to 35 points (17 tallies, 18 helpers), 174 shots and a plus-6 rating in 44 contests. He's plenty capable of a big run -- fantasy owners who had him stashed on injured reserve should make room for him now that he's back in peak form.
Gallagher scored a power-play goal and had five shots on net in Saturday's 4-0 win over Florida.
The Canadiens' best offensive player tipped home a Jeff Petry blast from the point to finish the scoring. Gallagher has goals in each of the two games since his return from a concussion. Both games have been Montreal wins, giving life to the team's flagging postseason hopes.

Gallagher, who's missed 10 of Montreal's last 11 games due to a head injury, will return to a featured role Thursday, skating on the Canadiens' first line and top power-play unit against Buffalo.

Coach Claude Julien suggested Wednesday that Gallagher (head) will travel with the team to Buffalo and has a good shot to rejoin the lineup versus the Sabres.
Gallagher participated in practice sans a non-contact sweater Tuesday for the first time since the injury, suggesting that he was drawing closer to his return to action.

Unfortunately, a stretch of missed games could prevent him from reaching the 50-point mark for a third straight season.
Gallagher (head) wore a regular jersey during Tuesday's practice.
