A New Beginning For Alex Galchenyuk

Merely a month following his arrest in Arizona, the polarizing player Alex Galchenyuk has wasted no time writing the next chapter of his career. The forward has now inked an agreement with Spartak Moscow in the KHL, a development that has arrived much more swiftly than anticipated by fans and analysts alike.

What Happened to his NHL career?


Per Puck Empire:

"Alex Galchenyuk Jr. is signing with Spartak Moscow (KHL)

Galchenyuk Jr., 29, had zero points through 11 games played with the Colorado Avalanche (NHL) last season. He had 16 goals, 42 points through 42 games played with the Colorado Eagles (AHL).

Galchenyuk Jr. was set to play with Arizona in the NHL this season but was released following an incident where he resisted arrest, threatening an officer's family , and hurling racial slurs at him."

Galchenyuk has had a long list of blockages in the way of him reaching his potential. In addition to his legal troubles, Galchenyuk has even found himself entangled in a legal dispute with a bank in Montreal.

Given the circumstances, a move to Russia emerges as his most viable route to continue a professional hockey career.
