MONTREAL – The girlfriend of Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk was allegedly arrested Sunday on charges of domestic violence, reports La Presse.

Chanel Leszczynski, 27, apparently showed up at Galchenyuk’s apartment around 8 a.m.

The hockey player and several of his friends were there, supposedly including teammate Devante Smith-Pelly.

Multiple people called 911 about an argument that quickly escalated.

Leszczynski was then arrested as the instigator; Galchenyuk reportedly refused to press charges.

Both Galchenyuk and Smith-Pelly had a meeting with general manager Marc Bergevin after Tuesday’s practice.

Neither the Canadiens nor Leszczynski’s lawyer were willing to comment on the incident.
