Alex Galchenyuk named OHL player of the week

Jamie Sabau

2nd overall in OHL scoring and tied for 1st in goals, this is the first time Galchenyuk has been named player of the week.

Remember how we're always talking about how great Alex Galchenyuk is? Well turns out that the OHL has finally come aboard the bandwagon by naming Galchenyuk their player of the week.

Galchenyuk played 2 games last week, recording 5 goals and 3 assists for 8 points, bringing his season total to 61 points in just 33 games with the Sarnia Sting.

Next up for Galchenyuk will be leading Team USA at the World Junior Hockey Championships. He is likely to be their go to offensive guy in the tournament, and is bound to see plenty of minutes in all situations.

The hard working American/Russian has done everything that could be asked of him to prove that he's fully recovered from knee surgery that caused him to miss nearly all of last season, and should the NHL and NHLPA grow up and get their CBA settled by the end of the World Juniors, expect him to wear a Habs jersey instead of a Sting jersey in January.
