2019 Fantasy Outlook
With two points through seven playoff games, Tuch fell flat against the Sharks in the conference quarterfinals. Fortunately, the power forward was Mr. Reliable when it mattered most for fantasy owners, netting 20 goals to complement 32 assists and a plus-13 rating through 74 regular-season contests. Scouts can attest that Tuch is a fluid skater despite a 6-foot-4, 222-pound frame that he uses to create space and deliver hits, with the New York native amassing 191 of those over the past two seasons alone. On the downside, Tuch sorely needs to make better use of his power-play opportunities. Despite averaging 2:25 of time with the man advantage since joining the Golden Knights ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, more than 82 percent of his points have been tallied at even strength. Consider pairing the 23-year-old with an elite forward. Read Past Outlooks

Tuch posted an assist and four PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 5.
ANALYSIS
The good part was Tuch's helper on a Chandler Stephenson tally in the first period. Unfortunately, it was Tuch's tripping minor in the third period, his second penalty of the contest, that led to the Stars' game-tying goal. Bad penalties aside, Tuch was a revelation with eight goals, four assists, 51 shots on net and 46 hits in 20 playoff outings. If he can earn a top-six role next year, he could make a big impact for fantasy managers after he lost a large chunk of 2019-20 to injuries.

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.
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.
