February 2017 – Galiev is back playing impressive hockey for the Bears and being (again) one of their most dangerous forwards. He missed a large chunk of the season to start the year after being sent down, but has rebounded nicely and in 30 games has 23 points. Galiev sits eighth on the Bears in points but fifth in points per game, and has been fairly consistent all year only going two games without a point. There is NHL talent there, likely just in a middle six role, he just needs the opportunity to show it, and on the current iteration of the Capitals it likely will not happen. Galiev needs a new team to be an NHL player or a legit shot next season. Pat Quinn


July 2016 – Playing in just 24 games last season Galiev was stuck between fourth line minutes and the press box not really getting a chance to show what he could do on a consistent basis. Under a coach like Trotz a young player needs to produce and play well immediately and consistently (aside from first round draft picks) to be awarded more playing time, and unfortunately Galiev did not produce as desired. In a positive note he did have the second best shots per 60 minutes rate, second to Ovechkin of course, but it was admittedly in a small sample size. Galiev did talk after the NHL draft about how the lack of playing time was something that was on him for not showing enough, and to his credit he practiced hard and took the time in the press box to learn the game more. The Capitals will only have about two spots open for next season, and Trotz says Galiev will have an opportunity to show what he can do, but he will be in competition with the recently signed Connolly as well as other called up young players for the minutes he desires. With the Capitals' top six essentially locked up, minutes will be tough to come by and it is up to Galiev to sieze the opportunity. Pat Quinn 


Nov 2015 – Galiev has been used sparingly, to say the least, for the Capitals this season. He has only played two games and has not played a game since their third game. Galiev had one assist in the first game he played, but in typical Trotz fashion he only saw an average of nine minutes in the two games as the head coach is hesitant to trust young players. He will likely remain the thirteenth forward for the Caps as he requires waivers to get sent down. So do not expect much fantasy relevance out of him this season. Pat Quinn


Oct 2015 – Galiev looks to have made the Capitals roster as of now. He has not impressed during camp as the coaching staff would have hoped but they will give him a shot, although he may be a healthy scratch a few times, as a couple players remain on IR. Expect him to only get the depth minutes Trotz gives to rookies he does not trust if he does play, meaning do not expect much production until he is in a better role. Pat Quinn


Sept 2015 – Galiev is battling for a NHL spot this training camp and he is likely on the outside looking in, but he does have one thing going for him as he requires waivers to be sent down once the season starts. He will likely spend the majority of the year in the AHL and only get called up once injuries occur but then sending him back down will be the tough part. It is definitely a situation to monitor and could increase his chances of making the team, albeit in a limited depth role. Pat Quinn


July 2015 – Galiev signed a two year contract July 1 with the first year being two-way and the second year being a one-way deal, per Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post. Expect Galiev
