Alex Galchenyuk Makes the 2014 All Star Game


In a 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks, rookie forward Alex Galchenyuk displays one of his usual flashy celebrations after
sniping his second goal of the night past Jonas Hiller.


Based off of their performance last year, most people didn't expect the Montreal Canadiens to ever be in a playoff position this season. However, here we are at the annual NHL all star break, and the Canadiens sit at fifth in the Eastern Conference with 57 points.

This surprising fact is largely thanks to the play of Alex Galchenyuk, the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 Entry Draft. He was invited to the All Star game on Tuesday - but not for the rookie skills competition - he made the roster for the actual All Star game and will play on a line with Jason Spezza and Joffery Lupul.

Alex been amazing for the Canadiens this season. He has been playing on their top line all season, and he leads the team in scoring with 49 points in 52 games. He is only behind one other player in the rookie scoring race - Jonathan Huberdeau, who has an insane 61 points in 50 games. Alex's outstanding offensive play has also rubbed off on Max Pacioretty - he did not make the all star game, but has scored 20 goals and 41 points in 52 games.

The Canadiens currently have a record of 25-20-7.
