Gallant, contrary to earlier reports, didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Golden Knights, per Jesse Granger of The Athletic.
Gallant managed just two points in 47 appearances with AHL Chicago this season and hasn't been able to crack an NHL roster. At this point, the 26-year-old may need to move overseas if he wants to continue his professional career.
Gallant was extended a qualifying offer from Vegas on Tuesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
At 26 years old, Gallant has yet to play an NHL game and has struggled to make a consistent impact at the AHL level. While being granted a qualifying offer is encouraging, the likelihood of Gallant playing in the NHL next season is low at best, so steer clear of him in all fantasy formats.
Gallant was waived by the Golden Knights on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Gallant is an enforcer type, but Vegas already has one of those in Ryan Reaves. Perhaps the former will clear waivers and play for AHL Chicago.
Gallant secured a contract with the Golden Knights on Sunday.
Specific contract details are pending. Gallant loves to drop the gloves, as evidenced by the tough customer accruing 442 PIM over 94 career contests in the AHL. The Prince Edward Island native should get along well with Ryan Reaves; he's an enforcer in his own right and just signed a two-year extension with the Golden Knights.
