Galchenyuk was selected once as the first star of the game (January 22 against Florida), and on one occasion as the second star (January 29 against Winnipeg). Galchenyuk finished ahead of teammates Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price.

The 18-year old forward appeared in six games in January, including his first career game in the NHL on January 19 against Toronto, recording five points (1 goal, 4 assists) and a +3 plus/minus differential. Galchenyuk served four penalty minutes while playing an average of 12:24 per game.

Alex Galchenyuk will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony prior to the Wednesday’s game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre.
