May 2015 – Having his best pro season, capped off by scoring his first NHL goal, Galiev finally looked like the player he was meant to be coming out of the Saint John Sea Dogs. 45 points in 67 games may not seem like a lot, but there were lots of positives to take out of it, like leading the AHL in power play goals. The first 10 games of the season he was a healthy scratch and moved around the line up as the coach seemingly could not figure out what to do with his veteran lineup, but when Galiev was put on a scoring line he went on a run posting 40 points in 41 games. He faded in the final 15 games of the season, posting only three points, but there were rumours of him dealing with a nagging injury. That injury obviously caught up to Galiev as he only appeared in five of the Bears’ 10 playoffs games, posting just a single goal. Look for him to be up and down for the 2015-16 season between Washington and Hershey, or possibly used as a trade chip if other teams are interested. Pat Quinn



April 2015 – In the final year of his entry level deal Galiev finally broke through to plan an NHL game, and in his second game he scored his first goal. After his emergency recall stint was over he was reassigned to the AHL where the Bears will play the Worcester Sharks in the first round as the number two seed. Galiev finished the year first in the AHL in powerplay goals (15) and tied for first on Hershey with 25. He managed to leave an impression on Trotz in his final two games that should hopefully bode well for next season. At 23 Galiev still has the chance to be a good top six producer, he just needs to keep his momentum going. Pat Quinn


February 2015 – Since November 26 Galiev has 34 points in 36 games, including 19 goals, 12 of which were on the power play. He is not being scratched anymore like he was in the beginning of the season, and is shooting the puck more than he ever has, with 136 shots in 47 games. It is appearing as though he is finding his offensive potential as he is up to fourth on the team in scoring and only seven points behind team leader Tim Kennedy in six fewer games. Hopefully those that held onto hope still have him, if not it is time to go and pick him up. Pat Quinn


December 2014 – Finally seeing consistent playing time for the Hershey Bears, Galiev is finally starting to produce. He has not been hurt or scratched since November 16th, and during that 14 game stretch (to date) he has 12 points, either of those goals. He is also averaging three shots per game during this stretch of play where is the coach is finally letting him play in the top six. Prior to November 16th he would be scratched every couple games as the coach wanted him in the top six and had other players ahead of him, but Galiev has forced the coaches hand. More time is needed to see if he can keep producing but if you have an open spot in a deep league stash him. Pat Quinn


September 2014 – Sent down a few days before the Bears start training camp he is finally looking at a top six role albeit with Hershey. A shoulder injury kept him on the shelf for two months and he never really got much consistency going in the final games of 2013-14. He is entering the final year of his three-year contract so he needs to start producing in the AHL. Pat Quinn


July 2014 – After being the most productive he has been in the AHL (4 points in 8 games) Galiev injured his shoulder on December 21, 2013. He returned February 23 but was not very effective on a poor Hershey team. In the 8 games prior to his injury he had 15 shots, and once he returned he only had 7 shots in the remaining 8 games. The good news is he had become too good for the ECHL and was to be in the AHL for the rest of the season. He (at least) looks to be progressing in his development, which is positive, and should hopefully be able to complete an entire injury free season with Hershey in 2014-2015. Pat Quinn



December 2013 - Galiev started this season out once again for the Royals in the ECHL but has recently (finally) be called up to Hersehey (AHL). He had 13 points in 14 games for the Reading Royals and in three games for Hershey already has two points. Look for him to post some decent AHL numbers now that he has (hopefully) gotten himself together after spending a significant amount of time in the ECHL. Nathan Kanter



June 2013 - Galiev certainly did not have his first pro season go as planned, as he registered just one point in nine games with the Hershey Bears (AHL) before getting an early demotion to the Reading Royals (ECHL). By season's end, after spending time between the two, Galiev had proven his ability to produce, only it was in the wrong league. 47 points in 46 games would have been tremendous for Hershey, but unfortunately it came in the lower league, as Galiev posted just the lone point in 17 total games for the Bears. This is a small step backward for a player who is still quite raw and it looks as though he'll need at least a couple more years at the AHL level. With his skill, Galiev has the ability to post high goal and assist totals, and this year appears to indicate he needs the right linemates to make it happen. Nathan Kanter


October, 2012 - Now with Hershey (AHL), Galiev is clicking on a line with Ryan Stoa. He's playing an aggressive brand of hockey, which has seen (at least early on) high penalty minutes and a high shot total relative to the ice time given to him. He's looking as though he could make it in the NHL on a checking line, if his quest for a scoring-line role falls short. - Dobber


March, 2012- Galiev finished off last year by playing his best hockey of the season and helped lead his team to the Memorial Cup championship. He was poised to have a huge year but unfortunately injured his wrist and was out four months.  Since his return in February, he has put up seven goals in 10 games. He’s smooth with the puck and possesses above average shooting and passing skills.



Fantasy Outlook: B-

Galiev projects as a top six forward but will likely need some time to develop the defensive side of his game.
