Official Alex Galchenyuk Thread...

never made an "official" player thread, but felt it necessary to make one about Galchenyuk as the previous thread mainly talked about his birth right.

Bottom line is this: Galchenyuk is a 17 year star in the making. He currently plays for Sarnia in the OHL and his stat line is 56 gp 21 goals 42 assists 63 points. Pretty monster numbers for a just turned 17 year old if you ask me. I also love the 44 penalty minutes as this kid isnt afraid to get dirty and drive the net.

As it stands he is a top 5 lock for next June's draft. He has the ability, size, and skill to go even higher. At 6'1 185lb, size is not an issue for this kid. He could continue to grow next year and be a 6'2 200lb offensive force in his draft year.

We know he will be battling it out with Yakupov and Grigorenko for the top forward taken currently, but his name easily belongs with the other two. 2012 is shaping up to be a very solid draft with tons of defense, but this kid could be the top offensive force in a year.
