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

Lights lamp against former team

Tuch registered a power-play goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.
ANALYSIS
Savvy fantasy owners made sure to deploy Tuch against his former team -- you know, the one that traded him to Vegas ahead of last season with the stipulation that Golden Knights GM George McPhee wouldn't take any Wild defensemen in the expansion draft. Tuch is on pace for 28 goals and 40 assists, plus he's been quite clutch based on six game-winning tallies through 43 games this season. While he's not quite in the elite tier, you could do much worse than Tuch as a No. 2 fantasy forward.

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.
