Alex Galchenyuk reportedly close to finding a new home for 2023-24

It appears that Galchenyuk is close to signing with another KHL club - SKA St. Petersburg, who have 2023 seventh overall pick Matvei Michkov on their roster.
The 29-year-old was set to play for the Arizona Coyotes next season after signing a one-year deal with them, but had his contract terminated shortly after due to him being arrested by Scottsdale Police on a number of charges including private property hit-and-run, disorderly conduct, failure to obey, resisting arrest and threatening or intimidating.
He apologized to everyone involved including the police officers and to the Coyotes organization and said he was going to enter the NHL/NHLPA Players Assistance Program, but it's unclear if he'll still be going through with the program if he signs in Russia.
DO YOU THINK GALCHENYUK WILL EVER PLAY IN THE NHL AGAIN?
