Alex Galchenyuk scored both of Montreal's goals in their 3-2 loss to Arizona.

Galchenyuk gave the Canadiens a two-goal lead in the first period but things fell apart for after that. Montreal stopped firing pucks at the net and they didn't create many offensive opportunities as the game wore on. The 20-year-old now has 15 goals and 34 points in 49 games this season. He started the game at left wing on Montreal's second line, but he replaced Lars Eller (injured) at center on the Habs' third line in the final period. Galchenyuk has already set new career-highs in goals and points.

Galchenyuk has shifted back to left wing after a brief trial at center. He is playing on the Habs' second line with David Desharnais and Brendan Gallagher.

Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

After getting some extended time at center, the Habs moved Galchenyuk back to the wing for this game. It was his first goal of the new year and his first since December 20th. The 20-year-old's long-term future will undoubtedly be as a center but Habs' coach Michel Therrien sees him as more of a winger right now. Galchenyuk has 11 goals and 29 points in 44 games.

Left winger Alex Galchenyuk scored Montreal's only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Wild in Minnesota Wednesday night.

Galchenyuk's goal, scored with 58 seconds remaining in regulation, spoiled Darcy Kuemper's shutout bid. It was Galchenyuk's sixth goal of the season. It won't hurt him in his contract talks with the Canadiens, who are looking to sign the 20-year-old to a long-term extension.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 10:44:00 PM

Extension talks between Alex Galchenyuk and the Canadiens haven’t begun yet, according to TVA’s Renaud Lavoie.

Lavoie reports that Montreal is looking to sign him to a long-term deal, which certainly fits with the front office's MO of locking in the core. Brendan Gallagher was signed to a six-year extension Saturday. Galchenyuk has five goals and 14 points in 23 games this season. The 20-year-old is in the last year of his entry-level contract and is due to become a restricted free agent this offseason.
