Five other charges against Galchenyuk stemming from his early July arrest were dismissed. The 29-year-old was arrested on numerous charges, including private property hit and run, disorderly conduct, failure to obey, resisting arrest, and threatening or intimidating. A police report said he threatened to kill an officer and their family and used a racist slur during the arrest.
Galchenyuk was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with 27 days being suspended upon completing a recovery program, and 12 months without consuming or possessing alcohol.
The Arizona Coyotes terminated Galchenyuk’s contract on July 13, two weeks after signing him to a one-year deal.
Galchenyuk entered the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program following his arrest.
