At 29 years of age, Galchenyuk recently found himself cut loose by the Arizona Coyotes in the middle of July, a mere fortnight after securing a spot on their roster through free agency.

Acknowledging his misconduct, Galchenyuk offered an apology for his actions and revealed his intention to enroll in the NHL/NHLPA Assistance Program to address his issues.


Throughout his NHL career, Galchenyuk has notched up an impressive 354 points across 654 games.

After his tenure with the Arizona Coyotes came to an unexpected halt, Galchenyuk is poised to make a fresh start with SKA Saint Petersburg.

The two-year deal signifies a new chapter in his journey as he joins the ranks of the KHL team.

Fans and analysts alike will be eager to witness his contributions on the ice and the impact he'll have on his new squad.

Galchenyuk's recent incident involving a car crash and subsequent confrontation with law enforcement serves as a reminder of the challenges that professional athletes can face off the ice.

His decision to enter the NHL/NHLPA Assistance Program demonstrates a commitment to addressing personal struggles and seeking a path to redemption.

As he focuses on his personal growth and well-being, hockey enthusiasts will be cheering for Galchenyuk's successful return to the sport he's proven himself in over the years.
