Firstly, because he’s a former top CH draft pick who never quite exploded like we thought he would, and secondly, well, because the American often finds a way to get people talking about him for all the wrong reasons.
In short, it’s a shame, but nothing’s going right for the former CH player.
Yet according to Arizona Coyotes head coach André Tourigny, who coached Galchenyuk during the 2021-2022 season, the former Tricolore had no attitude problems.
He mentions that many people, famous or not, face alcoholism problems. pic.twitter.com/TwJxFAqajf

“Galchenyuk doesn’t say a word in a field hockey room […] he’s a very good employee! Gally, he shows up, he works, he’s passionate, he smiles and he’s in a good mood. He’s a guy who doesn’t talk much, he’s not a guy who’s going to be the room clown. I’ve never had anything to say about his attitude!” – André Tourigny
So, in a way, Tourigny defended Galchenyuk’s reputation by contradicting host Jérémie Rainville’s comments that Galchenyuk had a disturbing attitude in the dressing room.
Of course, Tourigny doesn’t make Galchenyuk feel any less guilty.
All he explains is that the player’s bad reputation is clearly exaggerated, and that his career has been ruined more by his rather mediocre work ethic and very low motivation.
We also know that his father’s influence was detrimental to Galchenyuk’s career.

Are the Coyotes a good fit for right winger Jesse Puljujärvi if the opportunity arose to sign the 25-year-old. https://t.co/yf10Hch9c0
