Why can't he play for the US?

Well, if Grigs is in NHL next season I can see Galchenyuk making russian team for WJC in Ufa playing first-line centre. We have Prokhorkin - still very good but not elite talent like Alex and Grigs, we have Buchnevich but he's too young and all depends on how he'll play in KHL next season. It will be very important for Russia to win next WJC and I think Alex will be invited to play for our team.

An obscure IIHF rule that says you must live for 2 years after the age of 10 in that country in order to represent it.

By all accounts, Galchenyuk has only spent 1 year after the age of 10 in the USA - the 2009-10 season when he played with the Chicago Young Americans.

If he had been drafted by an American OHL based team such as Saginaw or Plymouth, he would be eligible to play for the US.

The rule is something about "competing in the domestic national competitions of that country". I think playing in the CHL means he's in a Canadian Domestic National Competion.

Going forward The NHL might be considered both the domestic competition of the US and Canada and it might not matter if he's on a Canadian or US NHL team.

Judging by his very pro Team USA tweets about the World Championships, I doubt he's going to suddenly decide to play for any other country.

Plus we don't know if he was actually ruled ineligible by the IIHF - just that Matteau was.

id love to see Toronto be able to pick up Galch, seems like he would thrive under the pressure... Best ceiling in the draft offensively I find, also American for Burke lol

Grigorenko definitely has a higher offensive ceiling than Gally.

This guy has future star written all over him. I'm going to be upset if Montreal grabs him.

It's not that. I just don't think he's a sure thing.

I wanted to write a bold statement about Galchenyuk and you're ruining my zen thing, man.

It's all good. I hope he does succeed. Seems like a good kid and is a talented player.

Did anyone see how hard he was pushing on the bike tests? This kid has a ton of heart and it's obvious. I'll take that over Mikhail "how do you respond to your critics who say you don't try hard enough? That's their opinion." Grigorenko any day of the week. Seriously hoping by some miracle we manage to nab him.
