Alex Galchenyuk has returned to the desert.
Galchenyuk is a versatile player who can play all three forward positions. The Coyotes first acquired him in 2018, sending Max Domi to Montreal in exchange for his services; after one season in Arizona, Galchenyuk was sent (along with Pierre-Olivier Joseph) to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Phil Kessel, Dane Birks, and a fourth-round pick.
In his 72 games with the Coyotes, Galchenyuk scored 19 goals and 41 points. He finished third in team scoring on the 2018–19 Coyotes, ranking behind only Clayton Keller (47 points) and Oliver Ekman-Larsson (44).
He split the 2020–21 season between the two Ontario clubs, tallying five goals and 13 points in 34 games before adding four points (one goal, three assists) in six postseason contests with Toronto.
