The Montreal Canadiens wasted no time to re-shape their roster, as they acquired winger Maxi Domi from the Arizona Coyotes for forward Alex Galchenyuk

Domi was a Restricted Free Agent at the time of the deal, but signed a new two-year contract ($3.15 million AAV) with the Habs. After a 52-point rookie season in 2015-16, the 23-year-old has struggled the past two campaigns, scoring just nine goals and 36 assists over 82 games this season. He was also the 12th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Galchenyuk is entering year two of his three-year $33 million dollar deal and is coming off an 82-game season he scored 19 goals and 51 points.  In 418 career games, the 24-year-old has 108 goals and 255 points.  The Third-Overall draft pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft has played both center and winger in that span.
