The 23-year old played three seasons with the Sea Dogs from 2009-2012, helping the team win three regular season titles, two President Cups and a Memorial Cup. In 151 career regular season QMJHL games he had 65 goals and 79 assists. He added 34 goals and 46 assists in 57 playoff games.

Galiev joins Mike Hoffman, Jonathan Huberdeau, Charlie Coyle, Eric Gelinas, Simon Despres, Tomas Jurco and Nathan Beaulieu as former Sea Dogs currently in the NHL.
