Just 12 days after signing a deal with the Arizona Coyotes, Alex Galchenyuk received unconditional waivers.

The move came less than a week after he was arrested on charges of hit and run private property, disorderly conduct, disobedience, resisting arrest and threats or intimidation.

Galchenyuk was booked into the Scottsdale City Jail on minor charges and released the next day on his own recognizance.
