News: Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday night's 4-1 win over Ottawa. He has points in three straight games.

Galchenyuk's Hat Trick Carries Canadiens

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored his seventh, eighth and ninth goals of the year for his first career hat trick in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: In addition to the impressive scoring, the 2012 No. 3 pick continued his recent solid work in the faceoff circle, winning more than half his draws for the third straight game. His play at center is getting better and better.

Montreal's Galchenyuk Transitioning To Center

News: Head coach Michel Therrien is walking a line with Alex Galchenyuk in the young forward's transition from wing to center, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Therrien indicated Alex Galchenyuk needs to work on his defensive zone play, but the coach doesn't want to rob him of his creativity and instincts, the things that make him a special player. Galchenyuk will center the top line, between Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher, Friday night against the Kings and for a few more games at least while Lars Eller (upper body) remains sidelined.

Habs' Galchenyuk Leads Forwards

News: Alex Galchenyuk led all Montreal forwards with 18:53 time on ice and won eight of 13 faceoffs in Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Vancouver.
Analysis: On an emotional night when the franchise paid homage to the late Jean Beliveau, perhaps we saw Montreal's next great center. Alex Galchenyuk, who played center in junior hockey, was moved from wing to center for this game after the team's 1-5-1 stretch. This combination may last only as long as it takes for Lars Eller (upper body) to heal up, but on this night, the new top line showed good chemistry and puck possession. Galchenyuk won faceoffs, had a key defensive play in the third period and did well in setting up his linemates, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher, who had a combined nine shots.

Habs Move Galchenyuk To Center

News: Alex Galchenyuk skated at center on the top line during Monday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: With the Canadiens in a 1-5-1 slide in which they've scored just 13 goals, head coach Michel Therrien did more than minor tweaking Monday. Alex Galchenyuk will center a line with Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher.

Habs' Galchenyuk Shifts To Center

News: Alex Galchenyuk started Saturday night's game against Dallas on the wing but was moved to center for the third period of a 4-1 loss.
Analysis: The Canadiens were listless all night and getting outshot after two periods, 23-11, prompting another round of line changes from head coach Michel Therrien. With Lars Eller (upper body) sidelined Saturday and heading for an MRI on Monday, now is a good time to slide Alex Galchenyuk to center in the interim. That's going to be his position eventually.

Canadiens' Galchenyuk Extends Streak

News: Glachenyuk assisted on Brendan Gallagher's first-period goal in Friday night's loss to the Blackhawks. He's registered a point in four straight games.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk and Gallagher are now flanking Tomas Plekanec on the second line. This trio has worked well together in the past and are currently the team's most productive line.

Habs' Galchenyuk Scores In Loss

News: Alex Galchenyuk recorded his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Wednesday was Alex Galchenyuk's third straight game with a point, as the young center is continuing to prove he'll be a valuable fantasy asset for years to come. He now has six goals and 11 assists in 27 games this season.

Habs' Galchenyuk Assists On Power Play

News: Alex Galchenyuk picked up a power-play assist in Monday night's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: With 2:39 of power play ice time, Alex Galchenyuk was third on the team Monday night -- more than David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and P.A. Parenteau. Is this a harbinger of things to come? The kid has good set up skills -- his 11 assists are tied for the team lead -- and he might better serve a man-advantage unit that ranks 24th in the NHL with a 14.3 percent success rate.

Three Assists For Montreal's Galchenyuk

News: Alex Galchenyuk picked up three assists in Montreal's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: They were his first assists since October 18, a span of 12 games. He did have three goals in those 12, but it's clear he's still working on his consistency. The sky is actually the limit for this young center, but it may be a couple years before he delivers on that potential.

Habs' Galchenyuk Scores In Win

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over the Jets. It was just his second point in the past nine games.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk was part of the Habs' most productive line early on when the team jumped to a 7-1 start, but he's fallen off pace at the same time the Canadiens did. He's back on a line with Brendan Gallagher and Tomas Plekanec, a unit that's had previous success.

Habs' Galchenyuk Back To Wing

News: Alex Galchenyuk has been moved back to left wing, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk opened Sunday's game against Calgary at center, but was returned to left wing following a stint in the clinic after getting head butted. Head coach Michel Therrien hinted at lineup changes for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, but we're not anticipating Galchenyuk being inactive.

Habs' Galchenyuk Takes Minus-4 In Loss

News: Alex Galchenyuk posted a team-worst minus-4 rating in Sunday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: The young forward has now amassed a collective minus-6 rating over his last four games, finding himself on the ice at precisely the wrong time. Fortunately, Alex Galchenyuk has shown some growth as a scorer this season with four goals and eight points in 12 games, helping to offset the minuses he's taken of late.

Alex Galchenyuk

Habs' Galchenyuk Shifts To Center

News: Alex Galchenyuk lined up at center between Brendan Gallagher and Rene Bourque during Saturday's practice, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: That line combination was established during the third period of Thursday night's overtime loss to the Canucks and produced a goal, but head coach Michel Therrien has not confirmed if this will be a line for Sunday's game against the Flames.

Habs' Galchenyuk Grabs Goal No. 4

News: Alex Galchenyuk pocketed his fourth goal of the season in Thursday's overtime loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk was able to find twine on a tipped P.K. Subban shot attempt, giving the young winger eight points in 11 games. The tally ended a three-game pointless streak for Galchenyuk, who produced a minus-3 rating during that time.

Canadiens' Galchenyuk Scores Late

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored late in regulation in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win against Detroit. The streaking Galchenyuk has goals in two consecutive games and at least one point in six of his first seven.
Analysis: The kid also doled out three hits and used his physicality in the crease to slip one by the Wings' Jimmy Howard, who played well in the loss. Alex Galchenyuk has been noticeably more physical this season, which perhaps has contributed to his increased scoring production.

Habs' Galchenyuk: Six Games, Six Points

News: Alex Galchenyuk picked up two points -- a goal and an assist -- in Saturday's win over Colorado. He now has at least one point in five of six games this season and six points (two goals, four assists) in that span.
Analysis: Very quietly, Alex Galchenyuk is starting to show that he really was the guy who should have been picked first overall in 2012. This is going to be a big year for the talented winger.

Habs' Galchenuk Gets Another Point

News: Alex Galchenyuk had an assist, two blocked shots and five hits in Thursday night's win over the Bruins. He has a point in four of the first five games and is tied for the team lead with 14 hits.
Analysis: Leading the team in hits is uncharacteristic of Alex Galchenyuk, but he's being rewarded with good minutes. He's averaging 16:41 through five games, a two-minute plus increase over last season's ice-time average.

Habs' Galchenyuk Scores First Of Season

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored his first goal of the season in Saturday night's 4-3 shootout win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk pushed toward the net when a Tomas Plekanec shot caromed in off his skate, completing Montreal's comeback from a three-goal deficit. He has a point in all three games and is skating on Montreal's most productive line.

Habs' Galchenyuk Helps In Win

News: Alex Galchenyuk had two shots on net, five hits and assisted on Montreal's lone goal in Thursday night's 2-1 shootout win over the Capitals. He has an assist in each of the season's first two games.
Analysis: So far, so good for Alex Galchenyuk and Tomas Plekanec skating together on the second line. The two have worked well together through the first two games.

Montreal's Galchenyuk Assists In Win

News: Alex Galchenyuk had one shot on goal and assisted on Tomas Plekanec's game-winner in Wednesday night's 4-3 victory over the Maple Leafs. He logged 14:00 minutes including 2:01 on the power play.
Analysis: The newly minted second line featuring Alex Galchenyuk at left wing, Plekanec at center and Brendan Gallagher at right wing led the Canadiens with nine shots and three points. The Habs are looking for the 20-year-old to take another developmental step this season and opening night provided a glimpse of that.

Canadiens' Galchenyuk Scores In Loss

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored his second preseason goal in Friday night's 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa. He skated 16:38, including over six minutes on the man advantage.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk had another strong game, and his line - with center Tomas Plekanec and right winger Brendan Gallagher - earned praise from head coach Michel Therrien following the game. That combination will open the regular season as Montreal's second line, which means top-six minutes for Galchenyuk.

Canadiens' Galchenyuk Back To Wing

News: Alex Galchenyuk was moved back to left wing during Saturday morning's practice, Hockey Inside Out reports. He skated on a line with center Tomas Plekanec and right winger Brendan Gallagher.
Analysis: The Habs experimented with Alex Galchenyuk at center during preseason, but the plan was always to move him back to wing.

Canadiens' Galchenyuk Notches Game Winner

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored the game-winning goal in Thursday night's preseason overtime win over the Avalanche. The goal was essentially a power-play goal, coming seconds after Colorado's Nick Holden got out of the box.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk played the game at center with Tomas Plekanec getting the night off and won 7-of-14 faceoffs. He said he felt comfortable at center, though when all bodies are healthy, Galchenyuk is expected to go back to left wing.

Habs' Galchenyuk To Play Center

News: Alex Galchenyuk will open training camp playing center, the Montreal Gazette reports. Groomed as a center at the junior level, Galchenyuk's played primarily at left wing in his first two NHL seasons.
Analysis: The Canadiens are still deep at center, so we expect Alex Galchenyuk to move back to wing by the time the regular season opens. It appears having him play center in training camp is planting the seed for an eventual move to the position.
