Observations:

 

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

 

 

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.
