UFA, RUSSIA - Alex Galchenyuk and his American teammates have one more game for gold at the world junior championship.
Galchenyuk, born of Russian parents in Milwaukee, Wisc., when his dad played in the American Hockey League, has been a man in demand when it comes to media here since his first language is Russian and he speaks English.
"It's tough sometimes. You have to focus on Russian and then, boom, go straight to English," said Galchenyk, "then, boom, back to Russian. But I think I'm doing pretty good with it, I think."
He's also doing pretty well on the ice.
