Coyotes forward Galchenyuk expected to miss opener

Arizona Coyotes center Alex Galchenyuk is not expected to play opening night after suffering a lower-body injury, the team announced on Tuesday.

Galchenyuk joined the Coyotes in June after he was traded by the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for left wing Max Domi.

Galchenyuk's status is currently week-to-week.

He made history with the Canadiens, becoming the youngest player to play a full season with Montreal since 1984. 

Galchenyuk spent six seasons in Canada, tallying 255 points in 418 games. In the 2017-18 season, he produced 51 points.

The Coyotes open their season in Dallas on October 4.
