I caught up to Alex Galchenyuk recently as he prepares to pack his bags for the NHL Combine in Toronto, that gets underway Monday. He told me he’s trying not to get too caught up in the hype leading up to the June 22nd NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh.

Make sure you join me tomorrow night when Alex joins me in The Locker Room on CJAD 800 and CJAD.COM, 6-7 p.m. Eastern.

Unless GM Marc Bergevin does some wheeling and dealing ahead of the draft, the Canadiens will draft third — with a real possibility that they could select the big centreman with the Sarnia Sting. 


About ahefter

I have covered hockey extensively during my 30-year sports broadcasting career. From the Miracle on Ice at Lake Placid to the Edmonton Oiler dynasty years, I've shared my views on hockey with listeners in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. You can "catch me in action" on Youtube at the following URL: My radio stops include TSN 690 Montreal, CJAD Montreal, CKNW Vancouver, and CKEY Toronto. I also ran the Canadian Press sports desk (radio). My travels as a network reporter have taken me to four Olympics, most recently Vancouver 2010. I'm currently an Applied Assistant Professor within the School of Communication at the University of Hartford.
