94 – Alexander Galchenyuk – Sarnia Sting

Canadiens first round draft  pick Alexander Galchenyuk scored  the winning  goal and an assist in  Sarnia’s 4-2 win in Guelph  Friday night.   Galchenyuk has nine points over his last three games. In  19 games  he has 12 goals and 18 assists for 30 points.  “He’s been shooting more of late,” said Sarnia coach  Jacques Beaulieu. “We talked to him about 10 days ago that those sexy passes don’t always work. He has a great shot, in fact a pro shot and he surprises a lot of goalies.”
