Earlier this week, we learned that Alex Galchenyuk was released from his professional trial with the Colorado Avalanche very quickly. The former CH player was trying to prove to the NHL that he still had a business in this league, but he was cut before the main rounds of cuts.


The Avalanche had been tight-lipped about the reasons for the cut, until the club's head coach, Jared Bednar, really explained why the forward was no longer in the organization's plans. It seems that it's not because of a lack of talent, but because of an injury.

Here is the real reason why Galchenyuk was cut by the Avalanche:



"Jared Bednar mentioned that Galchenyuk got hurt, which is why the Avs had to move on. He will miss a lot of time, said Bednar, who liked the forward's start to training camp. "It's just really unfortunate."

Bednar added that the team might get in touch with him when he's back healthy."

It will be interesting to see if the Avalanche will actually recall Galchenyuk when he gets better... It's a real shame for him anyway, this injury has possibly just cost him a lot of money financially, as he's going to remain a free agent, and without any contract in his pocket.
