RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
