Report: Canadiens’ Alex Galchenyuk fires agent


Montreal Canadiens center Alex Galchenyuk.

Contract talks between Alex Galchenyuk and the Montreal Canadiens will have to wait for a little bit longer.

The Canadiens forward fired his agent Ian Pulver according to a report from Renaud Lavoie of the Journal de Montreal on Monday.

Galchenyuk is a restricted free agent after his three year entry-level contract with the Habs expired. The 21-year-old was making $925,000 a year with Montreal over the last three seasons.

In 80 games last year, Galchenyuk had 20 goals and 26 assists but struggled in the playoffs. Through 12 post-season games, the American only scored once while adding three assists.
