Some crazy news around the NHL on Thursday, as former Avalanche forward Alex Galchenyuk is likely to have his contract terminated by the Arizona Coyotes. After the reason came out, it makes sense.
With the Colorado Avalanche, we took a look at six bargain UFA’s that would make sense for the team.
All that and more in this Friday edition of Evan’s Daily.

It seems unlikely that the Avalanche are done filling out their roster. We looked at six bargain UFA’s that would make sense foe them to take a look at this summer.
On Friday, it will be part two of our mailbag, as there were quite a few questions about the Avalanche that came through.
Around the NHL
A lot has happened with Alex Galchenyuk over the last few weeks. The Avalanche moved him to Nashville, who chose not to re-sign him. As a UFA, he signed in Arizona (again).
On Thursday, the Coyotes moved to terminate his contract completely. Here’s the reason why…
NEWS: Scottsdale Police Department has confirmed to The Athletic that Alex Galchenyuk was arrested on July 9 on a number of charges including private property hit and run, disorderly conduct, failure to obey, resisting arrest, Threatening or Intimidating

Nobody was injured in the incident, and the NHLPA will have to figure out how to approach this situation. Hopefully Galchenyuk gets help if he needs it.

Pittsburgh: The problem with chasing Erik Karlsson, from the Penguins perspective.
Boston: Milan Lucic might get emotional in his first game back with the Bruins.
San Jose: According to a report, Erik Karlsson might prefer to be sent to the Penguins if he’s going to go anywhere. He’s really running out of options as far as where he can go.
Los Angeles: Disappointments from the Kings development camp.
Nashville: Ryan O’Reilly didn’t come to the Predators to be a part of a rebuild. He thinks they can contend.
