BREAKING: Former 3rd overall pick signs NHL contract - Career isn't over yet!

The term BUST gets thrown around a lot for high drafted prospects who do not immediately turn into superstar players, and that is a term that has been often used for this former 3rd overall pick.

Alex Galchenyuk was drafted 3rd overall by the Montreal Canadiens back in 2012, and in his first 4 seasons with the team it really looked like he was emerging as a super star, especially in 2015-16 when he put up 30 goals and 56 points.


Unfortunately though there has been quite a bit of talk about his lack of drive and it's caused him to get moved around quite a bit through his career.


He has played on 6 different NHL teams during his career, and is now getting to play on his 7th.

Galchenyuk signed a PTO with the Colorado Avalanche in the offseason, but was released after getting injured.

Just a few weeks ago he signed a contract to play with the Colorado Eagles where he scored 3 goals and 7 points in 7 games.

Looks like the Avalanche like what they say in the former top prospect and have signed him to come play with the big club.
