Head Coach and General Manager Jacques Beaulieu has released a statement on behalf of the Hockey Club regarding Alex Galchenyuk.
“I was informed this morning by Marc Bergevin that Alex will remain with Montreal. First and foremost we are extremely proud of and excited for Alex. He deserves to play in the NHL and has proven he is ready to do so. Our hockey club has been playing without Alex since Mid-December and have been preparing to move forward without him in our lineup. I have the utmost confidence and faith in the players in our dressing room that we will continue to play hard and finish out the last stretch of the season strong.”
The Sting will officially announce the new Captain of the Hockey Club on Tuesday.
