Tuch (lower body) inked a seven-year extension with the Golden Knights on Friday worth $4.75 million annually, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Currently residing on injured reserve, Tuch has locked up a long-term deal after posting 15 goals and 22 assists over 78 contests for Vegas last season. He has yet to draw into a game for the Golden Knights, but the 2014 first-round pick should slot back into a top-six role for the club when healthy.
Tuch (lower body) did not join the team for its upcoming three-game road trip, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Labeled as week-to-week to open the campaign, Tuch has yet to take the ice for the Golden Knights this season as he continues to recover from a lower-body affliction. While his absence likely rules him out for the next three contests, there's also no clearly defined timetable for his return at this point.
Tuch is considered week-to-week as a result of his lower-body injury, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. The previously undisclosed injury for Tuch was clarified by general manager George McPhee as a lower-body problem. The winger was already placed on injured reserve, so the team won't need to make any corresponding moves. Based on his timeline, Tuch will for sure miss the first three games of the season, in which Tomas Nosek figures to slot into a third-line role.
Tuch (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Tuch left the preseason finale against the Sharks with this mystery condition and didn't return. It was already announced he wouldn't play Thursday, but now the 22-year-old will sit until at least Monday's game in Buffalo. Tuch's absence could shoot Erik Haula to the second-line right wing role.
Tuch (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's season opener against Philadelphia, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Tuch is considered day-to-day with his undisclosed injury, so he could presumably be ready to return as soon as Saturday against the Wild. Ryan Carpenter will likely slot into the lineup until Tuch is ready to rock.
