What stands out right away with Galloway is his combination of size and athleticism. He is very crisp in his movement, and with his long, explosive stride he quickly closes gaps. As a whole he is a plus defender. He is difficult to enter cleanly against on the rush, as he has the lateral movement…

What stands out right away with Galloway is his combination of size and athleticism. He is very crisp in his movement, and with his long, explosive stride he quickly closes gaps. As a whole he is a plus defender. He is difficult to enter cleanly against on the rush, as he has the lateral movement to track most players and he is deliberate in getting his long stick on the puck if attackers are careless with their placement. Down low he uses his size and strength to great effect in protecting the net-front and winning battles along the wall. While he is a very competent and poised player in the defensive end, his play with the puck is a different story. He is an adventure with possession at times, and things can go sideways when he hangs onto pucks for too long. His long stick is an asset when used to disrupt defensively, however, when being wielded with possession it is clunky and awkward. He routinely fights the puck, even in straight lines and  uncontested. The calm and comfort he shows defending also disappears with the puck on his stick, and maintaining possession is an issue for him when pressured. When forced into quick decisions he often either bobbles away possession or launches ill-advised and panicked pass attempts. When given open ice he does have the feet to sometimes escape pressure, however, those opportunities will only shrink as the game gets quicker at higher levels. He is really only a two-thirds-of-the-rink player at this point, as he shows very little initiative or comfort in the offensive zone. Even when he gets a head of steam up ice he is not looking to probe deep and is quick to dump the puck in. If Galloway can gain the ability to consistently make the first pass then his mobility and size fit the mould of a bottom-pair NHL defender, but there is definitely work that needs to be done for him to get there.
