Habs' Galchenyuk Assists Saturday

News: Alex Galchenyuk had an assist and one shot on goal in Saturday night's 3-1 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Points have been few and far between for Glachenyuk, who has two points in the past nine games. He's also minus-6 in that run of games. Going back to the end of January, you can see three-and four-game stretches without points. With just nine points in the past 21 games, Glachenyuk's value is more future than it is present.

Habs' Galchenyuk Delivers Healthy Line

News: Alex Galchenyuk, who'd missed the last two games due to an illness, returned to the lineup Tuesday with a two-goal, three-point, plus-3 effort against the Blues.
Analysis: A massive game for Alex Galchenyuk, who ended a three-game point drought by scoring the Habs' first two goals and later helping out on Michael Bournival's tally. He's now just a single point shy of getting to 40 for the first time, and if the young Russian can really turn things on down the stretch, he has an outside chance to hit 60 points for the season.

Habs' Galchenyuk Still Out With Flu Saturday

News: Alex Galchenyuk will miss Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets with the flu.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk is still dealing with the flu, and will miss his second game straight as a result. He should have a legitimate shot at returning to Montreal's lineup when they take on the Blues on Tuesday.

News: Alex Galchenyuk will miss Thursday's game against the Panthers with the flu, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.

Montreal's Galchenyuk Celebrates Birth

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal and had three shots on net in Thursday night's 4-3 loss to the Oilers. He has a point in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk celebrated his 21st birthday with a second-period goal that put Montreal up 2-0. The knock on the young forward has been consistency, but he's scored six goals on 30 shots (20 percent) in the past 11 games. This, after scoring 10 on 84 shots (12 percent) in his first 43 games. He's finishing better and scoring more frequently.

Habs' Galchenyuk Pots Two Goals

News: Alex Galchenyuk tallied both goals in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk's on a nice stretch here as he's recorded five goals in his last six games. The 20-year-old eclipsed his goal total from last season, and is up to 34 points through 49 games.

Galchenyuk Helps Power Habs To Win

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored Montreal's lone regulation goal on a power play, then assisted on P.K. Subban's power-play winner in the final minute of overtime Tuesday against Nashville.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk has now found twine in consecutive games following a nine-game goal drought, and he's tied last year's total of 31 points in 20 fewer games. And he still doesn't turn 21 until next month.

Habs' Galchenyuk Back On Wing

News: Alex Galchenyuk was moved back to the wing and scored a goal in Saturday night's 6-4 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk had been working as a center the past month or so and, after a promising start, his effectiveness started to wane. He was losing more faceoffs than winning, and wasn't making an impact in the middle of the ice where there were more bodies.

Habs' Galchenyuk Dropped To Third Line

News: Alex Galchenyuk was dropped to the third line at Monday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. He was centering Brandon Prust and P.A. Parenteau.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk, who had been centering the top line, appears to have hit a wall. He has scored a goal in seven games and was just 46.3 percent on faceoffs during that run. Tomas Plekanec has been promoted to the first line.

Habs' Galchenyuk Gets Assist In Win

News: Alex Galchenyuk earned his 17th assist of the season in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: The rising 20-year-old has now been held without a goal in his last five games, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too up in arms about it. He's at least captured an assist in three of those contests, justifying his place on the Habs' top line.

Montreal's Galchenyuk Rolling

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.
