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.

Alex Galchenyuk tallied three times for the Canadiens as part of a 4-1 victory over Carolina Tuesday night.

Alex Galchenyuk will center Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher on Montreal's top line against Vancouver on Tuesday night.

Montreal has lost six of their last seven, and seven of their last nine. They were shutout twice and scored one goal three times in that span. Sitting 15th of 30 in goals-for, Coach Therrien is searching for anything that'll light a fire.

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.

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.

Alex Galchenyuk scored his fifth goal of the season on Tuesday as the Canadiens defeated Winnipeg by a score of 3-0.

The young forward continues to display tons of promise, but the production doesn't always follow as this goal was his first point in five games. Until he becomes a consistent scoring threat he's not worth owning in shallow to medium-sized leagues. Tomas Plekanec and Lars Eller also found the back of the net for Montreal in the win.

Alex Galchenyuk tipped in his fourth goal of the season past Ryan Miller on Thursday night.

Galchenyuk redirected a slapper from PK Subban through his legs and past Miller to cut the Canucks' lead to 3-2 midway through the third. It was quite a display of hand-eye coordination. The 20 year old now has eight points in 11 games this season, and chipped in elsewhere by winning 67% of his faceoffs while skating 17:31.

Alex Galchenyuk has enjoyed an excellent start to the 2014-15 season.

He scored his third goal and seventh point in seven games during Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over Detroit. Galchenyuk tucked the puck into the net on a wraparound goal late in the third period to send the game into an extra session. He has credited his off-season training regimen with his confident play to open the year. "I had a great summer of training and I definitely got stronger," said Galchenyuk. "I feel more confident physically. Every summer, your goal is to get more confident so that you can compete. Your linemates can also make a difference. I'm happy to be playing with (Tomas Plekanec and P.A. Parenteau) and they have helped me a lot." The 20-year-old forward is stepping up for the Canadiens and new career highs in all offensive categories should be attainable even though his point-per-game pace will probably not be maintained.

Alex Galchenyuk doesn’t care which forward position he plays this season. All he wants to do is contribute.

Galchenyuk has played the first two years of his career mostly as a left-winger. Coming into this season though, Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said the team wanted to give Galchenyuk a shot to play center. "I’ve been saying it all along that I don’t care where I play," said Galchenyuk. "As long as I can help the team." The 20-year-old has played some preseason games at both positions this year, but it appears as though he will start the season on the wing. Wherever he plays, the 20-year-old is a prime candidate for a breakout season.

Alex Galchenyuk got another look at center in Sunday's 2-0 preseason loss to Washington.

He had three shots and a minus-2 rating in the defeat. Galchenyuk did manage to win 70 percent of his 10 faceoffs, but it's likely that he'll be on the wing when the regular season begins.

After starting the pre-season at center, Alex Galchenyuk was moved back to left wing on Saturday.

Galchenyuk skated on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher. The Habs drafted Galchenyuk as a center, but he has yet to see significant ice time in the middle. "I’m not the coach and I’ll play wherever they want me to play," said Galchenyuk. The 20-year-old is extremely skilled, but has struggled with the defensive duties that come with playing center. No matter which forward position he plays, Galchenyuk should surpass the 13 goals and 31 points he scored last season.
