2011 - Jonathan Huberdeau. Drafted 3rd overall by the Florida Panthers, a non contender.

2010 - Brett Connolly. Drafted 3rd overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning, a non contender team.

Both those guys were drafted at the same spot as Galchenyuk and both did not play the year they were drafted. I would say Huberdeau is closer to Galchenyuk in terms of arguing potential here, but both Connolly and Huberdeau went 3rd overall. It's not rare for an 18-19 year old to spend his first year with his CHL team.
I recall Toews stayed in UND too for a year after he was drafted by Chicago.
