Galchenyuk was waived Sunday after the Hurricanes acquired him from Ottawa but went unclaimed. Assuming he hasn't left Canada yet, he won't require the 14-day quarantine before joining the Maple Leafs. The 27-year-old has one goal and a minus-6 rating in eight games this season.

Galchenyuk needed a change of scenery after posting one point and a minus-6 rating over the first eight games, averaging 9:30 of ice time in that stretch. The Hurricanes will be Galchenyuk's sixth team in four seasons. The 27-year-old generated more than 15 goals in five straight seasons before dropping off severely last year.

The 26-year-old forward eclipsed the 40-point mark in four consecutive campaigns prior to his down year in 2019-20, so if he gets top-six minutes with Ottawa next season, he could be worth a look as a depth piece during next year's fantasy drafts.
General Manager Bill Guerin said Wednesday that it's unlikely that Galchenyuk will return to the Wild next season, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Galchenyuk played out the final year of his three-year, $14.7 million contract with the Wild after being traded from the Penguins in February. The Russian produced just eight goals and 24 points, both career lows, across 59 games with the Penguins and Wild in 2019-20. Galchenyuk's pending departure will open a spot for a younger player in the lineup for Minnesota, and it's unclear what sort of suitors Galchenyuk will have on the open market.

Galchenyuk notched an assist versus Washington on Sunday.
In his last six games Galchenyuk averaged a mere 8:25 of ice time in a fourth line role. Given his limited minutes, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the winger put just five shots on goal, which certainly won't help him get onto the scoresheet. At this point, it's hard to imagine the Milwaukee native will still be on the Pens' roster after the trade deadline, though who might want him remains to be seen.
Galchenyuk scored his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Wild.
Despite signs of improvement, Galchenyuk simply doesn't appear to be a good fit in Pittsburgh and is on pace to miss the 20-goal mark for the fourth straight year. The winger will no doubt see his name circulating among trade rumors heading into the deadline. Still, with Jake Guentzel (shoulder) unavailable, the Pens need somebody to play alongside Sidney Crosby. While that role is currently occupied by Dominik Simon, the 25-year-old Galchenyuk could certainly get a look if he can put together a few strong performances.

Galchenyuk may be riding a three-game point streak, but fans and fantasy owners alike will continue to be frustrated by the fact that the winger has yet to score a goal in the Black & Gold. The Milwaukee native should continue to get looks on the power play, but will need to open his goal account soon to avoid ending up on general manager Jim Rutherford's trade board.
Galchenyuk (lower body) was activated off injured reserve prior to Pittsburgh's matchup with Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Galchenyuk -- who was officially deemed a game-time call for Tuesday's tilt -- figures to slot into a second-line role alongside Nick Bjugstad and Patric Hornqvist. With Evgeni Malkin (lower body) still out of the lineup, Galchenyuk should link up with the No. 1 power-play unit. Prior to getting hurt, the winger notched two assists in three games, but is still looking for his first goal with the Penguins.
