23-Year-Old Right WingRW
Vegas Golden Knights
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Tuch was traded from the Wild as part of a condition of the Golden Knights selecting Erik Haula at the expansion draft. The young forward dazzled in Vegas, potting 15 goals and playing a key role with the man advantage. Tuch clearly has some slick offensive skills and is just getting started on what should be a lengthy and successful NHL career. Vegas likely won't be the powerhouse they were in their inaugural season, but Tuch has found himself a goldmine on the first power-play unit with William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault. Look for the creative winger to build on his breakout campaign and take another step forward in 2018-19. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a seven-year contract extension with the Golden Knights in October of 2018 worth $4.75 million annually.
Pots goal in Game 4 win
RWVegas Golden Knights
April 16, 2019
Tuch scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Sharks in Game 4.
ANALYSIS
Tuch has supplied a goal, an assist and 12 hits in four postseason games. In the Golden Knights' 2018 playoff run, he had 10 points in 20 contests, so he's producing at his usual level even though he's on the third line this year. Tuch had 52 points in 74 regular-season contests, and may be helpful in DFS if Vegas makes a deep run.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Tuch failed to get on the scoresheet in six games with the Wild last year, but the 2014 first-rounder still has plenty of time to develop into a successful power forward in the NHL. He lit the lamp 18 times in 57 AHL contests and already possesses an imposing 6-foot-4, 222-pound frame at just 21 years of age. Tuch will probably need a bit more seasoning in the minors before he’s ready to contribute in Vegas, but a midseason call-up is well within the realm of possibility.
The mammoth power forward showed flashes of dominance over his two seasons at Boston College, but he needs to play a more consistent game on a nightly basis. He is ready for NHL duty from a physical standpoint, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that he could spend some time in Minnesota this season. Tuch was the 18th overall pick in the 2014 Entry Draft.
Drafted 18th overall by the Wild in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Tuch played well above his age in his first season in the NCAA, leading Boston College with 28 points (14 goals, 14 assists) in 37 contests. While he certainly appears ready to join the pro ranks, Tuch noted that he had "unfinished business" to attend to in college, after his Eagles took a disappointing loss in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-4, 221-pound Tuch should be in for another big season as a sophomore and is someone those in dynasty formats should monitor.
