“We are very pleased to sign Alex,” Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong said. “He is a versatile, skilled forward who works hard and has earned a spot on our roster. He will be a good addition to our team.”

Galchenyuk collected 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 34 games with the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs in 2020-21.
