Montreal Canadiens sign Alex Galchenyuk to an ELC:

MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Monday the signing of its 2012 NHL Entry Draft first round pick Alex Galchenyuk to a three-year contract (2012-13 to 2014-15). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Galchenyuk, 18, only took part in two regular season games with the OHL Sarnia Sting in 2011-12. The 6’1’’, 195 lbs forward missed the majority of the season due to a knee injury. In the playoffs, Galchenyuk registered four points (2 goals, 2 assists), playing in all six contests.

In his first junior season in 2010-11, Galchenyuk ranked third in scoring with the Sting, tied for first in assists, with a total of 83 points (31 goals, 52 assists) in 68 regular season games. He also served 52 penalty minutes.

A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Galchenyuk was the Canadiens’ first round selection, third overall at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

I heard he was a gym rat and has an unreal work ethic. I think he has the offensive skills to play in the NHL but not so sure about his defensive game. I think he has a legitimate chance to make the NHL straight from the draft because Montreal desperately needs an offensive #1 center, and I think Galchenyuk may be good enough for a 50-60 point season.
