Today’s top story in the NHL is the deal sending Jeff Petry to Montreal and Erik Karlsson to Pittsburgh.
In fact, we’ve taken a closer look at the Petry situation.
This monster deal doesn’t stop us from giving love to former Montreal protégés, though.
Alex Galchenyuk, who’s been making headlines in recent days, has reportedly just signed a KHL contract. He is reportedly signing with Moscow Spartak. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but all indications are that he will continue his career in the second-best league in the world.

If Moscow is indeed his next destination, he’ll have the chance to play alongside former NHL players like Alexander Burmistrov, Nikolay Goldobin, Andrei Loktionov and Shane Prince.
Galchenyuk was born in the United States and has always represented his country at international level, but he is familiar with Russia. His parents are Belarusian and he speaks fluent Russian. So I don’t see a problem with him moving to the KHL.
In short, we’d known for some time that the KHL was a real possibility, but now it would soon be made official.
– We want to hear from you.
Jeff Petry is back in Montréal!
How do we feel about this #Habs fans ?!

– Let’s hope for his sake that he’ll be in San Jose for longer this time.
This is the second time Mike Hoffman has been traded to the Sharks. In June 2018 he was traded from the Senators to the Sharks before being traded two hours later to the Panthers. @TVASports
