Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal as the Montreal Canadiens fell to the Edmonton Oilers 6-2 on Saturday night.

Galchenyuk was given almost 14 minutes of ice time on Saturday after being benched in Thursday night's game versus Calgary. As trade rumors swirl around the struggling forward, he notched a power play marker in the second period but the game was already out of reach. Unless the talented young forward is traded, expect him to continue to battle for ice time in Montreal.

Alex Galchenyuk was benched in Thursday's game against Calgary.

Galchenyuk logged just 9:18 of ice time in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Flames because of his lackluster play without the puck. "In a tie game ... he wasn't very good tonight along the boards so that's the decision I took," said coach Claude Julien after the contest. Julien added, "A player has to do more than score goals .. that's for everybody." Unfortunately, Galchenyuk hasn't been doing much of that lately either with two goals in his last 18 games.

Galchenyuk helped set up Jeff Petry’s power play goal in the first period before putting his 11-game goal drought to bed in the second frame. This was also Galchenyuk’s first multi-point effort of 2017-18, which is nice for his fantasy owners. The Canadiens forward now has five goals and five assists in 24 games this season.

Alex Galchenyuk fired eight shots on goal in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Galchenyuk led the team in that category. The Canadiens forward had some jump tonight, and he was probably the best player on the ice for his team. Unfortunately for Montreal, Galchenyuk (or anyone else) couldn't figure out how to beat Devan Dubnyk. He has four goals and two assists in 17 games this season.

Alex Galchenyuk logged some time at center Tuesday night after Jonathan Drouin left the match with an upper-body injury.

Galchenyuk has been skating alongside Drouin and Artturi Lehkonen for the last few contests. Paul Byron moved up to play with Galchenyuk and Lehkonen after Droun was injured. Coach Claude Julien said he still sees Galchenyuk as a winger, but he has liked what he's seen from the 23-year-old lately.

Alex Galchenyuk finally registered his first assist of the season on Saturday.

It took Galchenyuk 14 games to reach that feat. He has scored four goals this season so he hasn't been completely left off the scoresheet, but still a total of five points over 14 contests isn't what people were hoping for out of him. The good news is that he has recorded a point in three of his last four contests, so it seems like he's heating up after his slow start.

Galchenyuk has three markers in the last four contests and he is tied for the team lead with Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher. "He's been getting better," said coach Claude Julien. "I have to find him more ice time, but it isn't easy when the guys on the other lines are playing well."
