2017-18 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Gallagher dropped off the map in 2016-17, registering just 29 points (10 goals, 19 assists) over 64 games, and hitting that mark even required a late-season run consisting of 13 points over the final 20 games. Gallagher was still firing pucks at the net, finishing second on ...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Gallagher topped the 40-point mark for a third consecutive season in 2015-16, scoring 19 goals and assisting on 21 others. But weíre left wondering what could have been if not for injuries. His season was limited to 53 games by broken fingers and a groin ailment. While missing Gallagher didnít quite have the disastrous effect of Carey Priceís season-ending knee injury in Montreal, missing the energetic winger in the lineup had a similarly deleterious effect. When on the ice, he was the Habsí second-most-productive forward, averaging .75 points per game while finishing third with seven power-play goals. Heís a driver of offense who plays well with any linemate, something that gives head coach Michel Therrien flexibility when heís looking to spark the lineup. Gallagher showed chemistry with Tomas Plekanec on the second line last season, but was also part of the teamís top unit with Max Pacioretty and Alex Galchenyuk at seasonís end. Wherever in the top-six he lands, Gallagher will be an important piece of Montrealís offense.

2015-16

While Gallagher set new career bests in goals (24) and assists (23) along with shots (254) and plus/minus (plus-18) last year, he still hasn't matched his scoring rate from the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign in either of the two seasons since, and he hasn't been terribly effective on the power play, either. At age 23, he could still see another jump in productivity, but the 5-foot-9 Gallagher is probably miscast as a top-line winger -- he's better suited for a second-line role, as he isn't likely to approach the scoring level achieved by other diminutive players like Martin St. Louis. Nonetheless, he's by far the best talent the Canadiens have on the right wing, so he's on track to skate next to with fellow first-liners Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec once again as he aims to clear 50 points for the first time.

2014-15

Gallagher continued to develop in his second season, posting 41 points (19 goals, 22 assists) in 81 games while seeing a lot of action on Montreal's top line. He followed that up with 11 points in 17 playoff games. The young forward has emerged as one of the Habs' top goal scorers. There's no reason he should be moved off the top line, so we're expecting a modest increase in playing time and points.

2013-14

Gallagher began the season as the less heralded prospect to Alex Galchenyuk, but made the bigger impact of the two rookies for Montreal over the course of the 2012-13 season. He ended up skating on the first line and finished tied for the team lead in goals (15) with Max Pacioretty. He didn't get any bigger between his final junior season and rookie professional one, but that didn't stop the 5-8 Gallagher from playing in the dirty areas and contributing some big goals as the direct result of his relentless work in the offensive zone. We suspect more ice time in his second season and expectations are raised.

2011-12

Gallagher finished off his second straight season with over 40 goals for the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League. The undersized winger is relentless in the offensive zone and doesn't let his lack of size prevent him from mixing it up. One knock against him is foot speed, but he's handled the pace during the preseason.
