Mount Rushmore - Alex Galchenyuk

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

If you could sculpt your own Mount Rushmore, what famous faces would you chisel into the iconic rock face? We asked Alex Galchenyuk that very question...

Alexander Galchenyuk Sr.
He played hockey. I always looked up to him. He helped me a lot growing up. He always told me to be myself.

Michael Jordan
I always admired how hard he worked and how confident he was in his abilities. When he was in a certain zone, he knew how to make those clutch plays. I just enjoyed watching that.

Floyd Mayweather
People always judge him based on his lifestyle, but I like to focus on his boxing ability and what he’s done in the ring. Sometimes lifestyle overshadows hard work. The way he trains is unbelievable. He’s just so sharp.

Wayne Gretzky
He’s the greatest hockey player of all time. He made unbelievable plays, and he was just so much smarter than everyone else on the ice. He had great hockey sense, and he was just so quick and mobile up and down the rink. He was spectacular.
