The Canadiens announced on Wednesday afternoon that rookie Alex Galchenyuk is the Molson Cup winner for the month of January.
Galchenyuk was selected once as the first star of the game (Jan. 22 against Florida), and once as the second star (Jan. 29 against Winnipeg). He finished ahead of teammates Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price
The 18-year old Galchenyuk, selected with the No. 3 overall pick at last year’s NHL entry draft, appeared in six games in January, recording five points (one goal, four assists) and a plus-3. He served four penalty minutes while playing an average of 12:24 per game.
Galchenyuk will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony before Wednesday’s game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre (7:30 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN 690 Radio).
