Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: Two-point effort in Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ducks.

Galchenyuk put the Wild ahead 4-3 with a goal at 14:20 of the third period. He also assisted on Mats Zuccarello's first-period tally. The 26-year-old Galchenyuk has three goals and four helpers through 14 games with the Wild. He's at 24 points, 86 shots and a minus-5 rating in 59 contests overall.

Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: Tallies in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored a goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.

Galchenyuk's tally at 11:30 of the second period restored a one-goal advantage for the Wild. He's racked up five points through 12 games with his new team, and now has 22 points in 57 contests overall when factoring in his time with the Penguins this year.

Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: Notches pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk posted two assists, six hits and three shots on goal in Friday's 5-3 win over the Oilers.

Galchenyuk's helpers came on second-period tallies by Carson Soucy and Jared Spurgeon. Through five games with the Wild, Galchenyuk now has three points. The 26-year-old is up to 20 points, 73 shots and 41 hits through 50 contests overall. He's settled into a top-six role in Minnesota, something he was rarely afforded with Pittsburgh.

Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: First goal in new sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored the game-tying goal in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

Galchenyuk tallied at 15:15 of the third period to force overtime. In the shootout, the 26-year-old added the decisive tally to secure the Wild's win. The goal in regulation was his first point in four games with his new team. He's at 18 points and 70 shots through 49 contests between the Wild and Penguins this year.

Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: Quiet night with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk had one shot while skating in 12:26 of ice time in Tuesday's game against Vegas.

Tuesday marked Galchenyuk's first game with his new team after he was dealt from Pittsburgh on Monday. The 26-year-old was given Jason Zucker's old spot on the power play in the game, skating in 2:30 of power-play ice time, which is a good sign for his fantasy prospects going forward. Galchenyuk has produced just five goals and 17 points through 46 games this campaign.

Wild's Alex Galchenyuk: Dealt to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk was traded to the Wild along with Calen Addison and a 2020 first-round pick in exchange for Jason Zucker on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Galchenyuk's tenure in Pittsburgh lasted just 45 games. He registered a disappointing five goals and 17 points in a Penguins sweater and was given just 9:22 of ice time per game since the beginning of January. A change of scenery could benefit the 25-year-old forward, who will suit up for his fourth different team in the last three seasons.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Earns assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Bends twine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Scores again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored a goal in Saturday's 6-4 victory over Nashville.

Galchenyuk now has goals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Since joining the Penguins over the summer, the winger has struggled for consistency, including going goalless in his first 14 games with Pittsburgh. While it's probably too early to jump on the Galchenyuk fantasy train, the positive results could be an indication of better times ahead.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Scores second goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored on his lone shot in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Blues.

Galchenyuk only saw 9:05 of playing time Wednesday, but managed to pick up his second goal of the season early in the second period. It's been a rough start to the year for the first-year Penguin, who was coming off back-to-back 19-goal campaigns.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk scored a goal and tallied an assist to come away with two points in Monday's 3-2 overtime win versus Calgary.

Galchenyuk's power-play goal in the opening period brought the two teams level at one goal apiece. He also collected the lone assist on Jared McCann's go-ahead goal. The 25-year-old has posted six points in his last six appearances, giving Galchenyuk nine points in 15 games this season.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Grabs helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime defeat to the Islanders.

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.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Removed from injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk (lower body) skated in a second-line role at practice Monday and will be a game-time decision versus the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Galchenyuk got off to a decent start to the season, as he notched two assists, six shots and eight hits in three games. After a nine-game stint on the shelf, the winger appears close to getting back into action Tuesday. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native could be an option for the second power-play unit in addition to his top-six role.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Full participant but won't play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Stars.

Galchenyuk logged a full practice Friday but will take additional rest before getting back into the lineup. Since he's working at full speed, Galchenyuk figures to be ready for Tuesday's game against the Flyers.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Logs on-ice workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk (lower body) and Evgeni Malkin (lower body) were spotted on the ice in full equipment prior to Monday's practice, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Both injured players are likely just getting in some early conditioning work and probably won't participate in practice, but the fact that Galchenyuk is skating again supports the notion that he's not in danger of a long-term absence. Galchenyuk has missed six games due to the lower-body injury and seems likely to remain out for the Penguins' three-game road trip this week, but a late-October return still isn't out of the question.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins placed Galchenyuk (lower body) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Galchenyuk was originally considered day-to-day, so it appears as though his lower-body injury may be more serious than initially expected. The Penguins have yet to release a specific timetable for the 25-year-old's recovery, but he'll miss the team's next three games at a minimum. Adam Johnson was recalled in a corresponding move Wednesday, so he'll round out Pittsburgh's depth up front for the foreseeable future.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Won't suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Ducks, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Add Galchenyuk to the extensive list of injured players in Pittsburgh, as the team currently has just 10 healthy forwards. They'll need to bring up more players from the minors to fill the void, and they hope Galchenyuk will be ready for Saturday's road game versus the Wild.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk is labeled day-to-day with a lower-body injury ahead of Thursday's contest against the Ducks, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

Galchenyuk continues to be plagued by a nagging issue, which led to his absence from Wednesday's morning skate. He will get another night's rest before a final decision on his status for Thursday's tilt is made. If he can't go, the Penguins will likely be forced to either summon reinforcements from the minors or roll with an extra defenseman.

Penguins' Alex Galchenyuk: Grabs two assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galchenyuk picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

Both helpers came in a five-goal second period for the Pens that put the game out of reach. Galchenyuk hasn't scored more than 19 goals since 2015-16 and has generally been something of a disappointment in his career after being the third overall pick in the 2012 draft, but the 25-year-old is seeing consistent power-play time in the early going and could be headed for a productive first season with Pittsburgh.
