Anaheim Ducks have interest in former Habs first round pick

Alex Galchenyuk would still be on the verge of changing team. At least that's what journalist Eric Stephens, who covers the Anaheim Ducks, reports. The Californian team would thus consider offering Galchenyuk what would possibly be his last chance in the National Hockey League, after his recent stint with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

While he never was the player the Montreal Canadiens fans dreamed of, the former first-round pick (third overall) of the Habs in 2012 could still give the Ducks' offense a boost, as they finished 31st in goals scored this past season. Chucky did indeed have a more than respectable stint with the Leafs, scoring four goals and 12 points in 26 regular season games, as well as four points (one goal) in six playoff games.

If he come to terms with the Ducks, Galchenyuk would be in his seventh NHL organization, having also suited up for the Coyotes, Penguins, Wild and Senators over the past three years.

In his career, the six-foot-one, 194-pound American winger had 333 points, including 140 goals, in 583 regular season games. That included a 30-goal, 56-point season with the Tricolore in 2015-16.
