It’s been a roller-coaster ride for forward Alex Galchenyuk and the ride isn’t over yet… On Monday, the Maple Leafs acquired Galchenyuk from the Carolina Hurricanes for forward Egor Korshkov and defenceman David Warsofsky. He landed in Carolina as he was traded along with Cedric Paquette in return for Ryan Dzingel, who’s now back with the Senators. The 27-year-old did not play a game with the Hurricanes : he was immediately sent to the AHL’s Chicago Wolves. Toronto is Galchenyuk’s seventh NHL franchise throughout his career.
And then again on Wednesday morning, he was victim of another move as he was sent down to the taxi squad and ended up with the Toronto Marlies.
This has to be getting tiring for the veteran forward.
He started his NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, where he played spent the first six years after the Habs selected him third overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
Galchenyuk has 136 goals and 185 assists over 557 career games in the NHL. And a seventh uniform…
And he might have to endure this new more for longer as Toronto’s depth goes a long way and could leave him in the AHL for a while…
