Alex Galchenyuk entering NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program

Only shortly after the chaos faded away, Alex Galchenyuk will enter the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program. Galchenyuk was arrested on multiple charges only a few days back, and made some pretty interesting remarks during the feud. Read more on it here.

Galchenyuk, who has been in the NHL for 13 seasons now, has found himself in a place where no player wants to be: the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin, native, let the hockey world know about his decision to enter the program on his Twitter Tuesday morning.

“My behavior last week was deeply offensive, uncalled for, horrendous, embarrassing, disrespectful and just plain awful,” he wrote.

I let (the Arizona Coyotes organization and its fans) all down and I am truly sorry. While this behavior after drinking alcohol is not representative of who I am, I do have to take responsibility for it. My actions have cost me my chance to do what I love, play professional hockey.

I was very much looking forward to starting my life with my wife here in Arizona, playing alongside some of the best in the NHL and entertaining the incredible fan base the Coyotes have built here.

By checking myself into the NHL/NHLPA Assistance Program, I hope to get the help I need to ensure I never make a mistake like this again.

Again, I am sorry I let you down, I hope over time and with hard work, I can show all of you I am a better person than this horrendous moment,” the statement concluded.

Although what Galchenyuk did was completely and utterly wrong, his apology was very sincere. The one downside behind it is that Arizona has a horrid fan base, but his note checks the rest of the boxes.

Although Galchenyuk is currently not on an NHL roster, he still remains eligible for the program. When Galchenyuk exits the program, he will remain a free agent.

Will any team sign the former third overall pick after his time away from hockey? Let us know what you think down in the comments below.
