Looks like Alex Galchenyuk could be back this season after all. The Sarnia Sting center, a projected top-10 (at least) pick in June's draft, hurt his knee in a September preseason game and had his ACL surgically repaired a month later, a procedure many expected would keep Galchenyuk out all year.

But the Russian-American, who turned 18 last month, has spent the last couple of weeks skating with his teammates and could be cleared for contact soon.
