Alex Galchenyuk

Does anyone know which country this kid will represent Internationally in hockey? I've heard that he has the option of playing for USA, Russia or Belarus. Has he chosen one yet or is he fielding options? Is he actually eligible to play for all of the teams?

He was born in Milwaukee only because his dad came over to play Pro hockey in North America.

I believe his dad was born in Belarus, but he could pull a Nabokov and say he was born in the ''Russian Federation''' and say he can play for Russia.

But honestly I haven't seen anything.

Galchenyuk is a citizen of both USA and Russia.

Up until last year he was basically brought up through Dynamo Moscow's system. Apart from 1 year (last year) played in Chicago, I don't think he has many ties to USA Hockey.
