Alex Galchenyuk Signs With The Arizona Coyotes

GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Arizona Coyotes General Manager Bill Armstrong announced today that the Coyotes have signed forward Alex Galchenyuk to a one-year contract. As per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“We are very pleased to sign Alex,” said Armstrong. “He is a versatile, skilled forward who works hard and has earned a spot on our roster. He will be a good addition to our team.”

The 27-year-old Galchenyuk registered 5-8-13 with 20 penalty minutes (PIM) in 34 total games with the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs in 2020-21.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound forward recorded 4-8-12 and 14 PIM in 26 contests with the Maple Leafs. He was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes from Ottawa on February 13 and acquired by Toronto from the Hurricanes on February 15 in exchange for forward Egor Korshkov and defenseman David Warsofsky.

Looks like he is well on his way to breaking the record number of teams played for, by I think either Mike Sillinger or Michel Petit.

Arizona will be oddly fascinating to watch,
given they also have at least four overpaid,
underachieving veterans essentially taken on in exchange
for picks and cap space after this season.

How do those guys perform with really nowhere near
enough NHL ready alternatives to keep them off the ice?

This year expect them to become ‘Buffalo West”
