Alex Galchenyuk is an ice hockey player for the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League. He was selected first overall in the 2010 OHL Draft.[1]

Playing careerEdit

Growing up in Europe, he came to the Toronto area to participate in a Silver Stick tournament. Galchenyuk and his teammates watched an Oshawa Generals game, and John Tavares was the attraction of the team. Seeing the enthusiasm for junior hockey in Canada, Galchenyuk decided to stay in North America to continue his developing career.

Midwest Elite LeagueEdit

Galchenyuk joined the Midwest Elite League’s Chicago Young Americans in order to be eligible for the 2010 OHL Draft. While playing for Chicago, Igor Larionov, a friend of his father, watched him play. He won the Midwest Elite League scoring race with 44 goals and 87 points in 38 games. Galchenyuk would claim the title by a margin of 19 goals and 33 points.


His performance led to him being drafted #1 in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection Draft to the Sarnia Sting.[2] During the 2010-11 Sarnia Sting season, he accumulated 83 points. He was named to the OHL 1st All-Rookie team alongside teammate Nail Yakupov.[3]
