Tuch collected two assists in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Nashville. With his mini three-game point streak, the rookie has now crossed the 20-point barrier (in 34 games). The 21-year-old has proven to be a valuable source of secondary scoring for the Golden Knights, something that's made all the more impressive considering Tuch has averaged just over 14 minutes of ice time.
Tuch collected a helper and fired seven shots on goal in Tuesday's shootout win over the Ducks. Tuch also showed off his silky hands in the shootout, scoring the winner with a sweet move. The third-line winger now has a three-game point streak, bringing him to six goals and 13 points in 23 games on the season. The 21-year-old isn't an elite offensive producer yet, but he's certainly showing signs of becoming a very impactful fantasy player. For now, his filthy hands and power-play time make him worth owning in deep leagues.
Tuch scored his fifth goal of the season and registered a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings. Tuch's goal was an empty-net score to ice the game, but it counts just like any other. The 21-year-old also logged a season-high 18:34 of ice time. If he starts seeing that much action on a consistent basis, he may be worth a look in some deeper fantasy leagues.
Tuch notched a goal and an assist with the man advantage Monday, doing his part in a 6-3 road loss to the Islanders. The American power forward has tremendous offensive upside, and it's good to see the 21-year-old step up when his veteran teammates otherwise struggled. These were his first points with the man advantage, but he's connected on 18.8 percent of his shots in the early going. Since he's a relative unknown in fantasy circles, consider deploying Tuch in daily fantasy leagues until he slows down or becomes too trendy.
Tuch was recalled from AHL Chicago on Sunday. With Jonathan Marchessault landing on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, Vegas has turned to Tuch to provide forward reinforcements for the time being. Tuch has the size and skill to be a surefire 30-goal scorer in the NHL, even if he's yet to record a point in the six games he's played. Expect Tuch to be given a chance to show his stuff with the man advantage while simultaneously trying to play his way in to a permanent role in the team's top six.
