HABS WON'T PULL GALCHENYUK FROM WJHC IF LOCKOUT ENDS
Montreal Canadiens draft pick Alex Galchenyuk will remain with Team USA at the World Junior Hockey Championship, even if the National Hockey League lockout ends during the tournament according to La Presse.
As reported on Twitter by Marc-Antoine Godin, Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin has told USA Hockey assistant executive director of hockey operations Jim Johannson that he will not pull their top prospect from Ufa if camp gets under way with a new collective bargaining agreement.
Galchenyuk, who was selected third overall in the 2012 NHL Draft, opens the junior tournament as a top line winger for the U.S. team.
He is currently the second leading scorer in the Ontario Hockey League, notching 27 goals and 34 assists in only 33 games with the Sarnia Sting.
