If you have been following NHL news in recent days, you are probably already aware that Alex Galchenyuk's life has been dramatically affected after he was arrested by the police at the beginning of July.

Just twelve days after signing with the Arizona Coyotes, the Montreal Canadiens' former third overall pick in 2012 had his contract terminated by the team due to unacceptable actions while under the influence of alcohol.

However, there's an update for Galchenyuk, as he is currently in the NHL's player assistance program for his substance abuse problem. Rumors in the hockey world suggest that he might soon sign a new contract.

Serious hints indicate that he could be heading to the KHL for the upcoming season, as the Salavat Yulaev's general manager, Rinat Bashirov, has expressed interest in signing him.


Another sign that Galchenyuk's future lies in this league is that he has recently joined a player agency in Russia.


It's becoming increasingly clear that his NHL career is now over, as he has burned his last chance with the Coyotes. It's a sad ending for a player who was once highly appreciated during his time with the Canadiens.
