Galchenyuk saw limited ice time tonight (just over 8min) and only 2min in the third. Most of his shifts were 20-30s and off so don't put too much stock in his production in his first game back. For the most time his time was spent regrouping or retrieving as the Sting were unable to get any movement up the ice going

He was on for three goals against (hence -3) but one was one a bad line change, another as a PP ended and the other was a goalmouth scramble so none were from his defensive flaws. Actually he played well defensively

He saw limited PP time but showed a few flashes of his vision and playmaking skills.

The main thing was that he was skating well with no signs of poor affexts from surgery.

Should be interesting how the sting progress with his icetime over the next few games. I'd expect it could take 5 or so games to knock the rust off

On a side note. Media/scout room was full tonight and EDM had several scouts there.
