The Montreal Canadiens, NHL affiliate of the Hamilton Bulldogs, selected seven players at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Canadiens made their first selection on Friday evening, picking centre Alex Galchenyuk in the first round, third overall. On the second day of the draft, Montreal chose winger Sebastian Collberg, defenceman Dalton Thrower, winger Tim Bozon, centre Brady Vail, forward Charles Hudon and winger Erik Nystrom.
Galchenyuk tore his ACL prior to the start of the season and only managed to play two regular season and six playoff games for the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League where he recorded four points (two goals, two assists). During his rookie season with the Sting in 2010-2011, the native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin posted 83 points (31 goals, 52 assists) and was third on the team in goals and points. The six-foot, 198-pound centre played 38 games for the Chicago Young Americans of the Mid-West Elite Hockey League during the 2009-2010 season where he registered 87 points (44 goals, 43 assists).
