Alex Galchenyuk had a goal and two assists to lead his United States squad to an 8-0 win over Germany on Thursday at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championships. It was the first game of the tournament for the Americans — they will face Russia on Friday morning. Galchenyuk has 27 goals and 34 assists in 33 games for the Sarnia Sting — his 61 points are second only to Ryan Strome in the OHL this season.

Born and raised in the Montreal area, Steve is an Associate Editor and Senior Writer at All Habs. Steve started playing hockey at the age of four, played as a goaltender as high as Junior AAA and was drafted to the QMJHL. When he isn’t writing about the Canadiens or twiddling with HTML code on the website, you can usually find him sharing his sarcasm on Twitter where he enjoys the never-ending hockey arguments.
Steve also works as an analyst for Rogers Communications and enjoys the fact that his downtown office is only a five-minute walk from the Bell Centre.
On the personal side; Animal Planet, poutine, the colour blue, the word ‘weaponized’ and Pepsi are just a few of Steve’s favourite things.
