Galchenyuk pleads guilty to misdemeanor, 5 other charges dropped

Alex Galchenyuk pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor threatening charge in Scottsdale City Court on Monday, according to documents obtained by The Athletic’s Katie Strang.

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.
