Tuch (upper body) generated a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks. Tuch provided the secondary helper on a William Karlsson goal in the first period. Tuch has a goal and an assist in three games this season, but the narrative has been injuries for the 23-year-old so far. He missed four contests with his most recent ailment. Tuch still has time to reach 40 points, but he'll have a hard time matching the 52 points he generated in 74 outings last year.
Tuch (upper body) will return to the lineup Wednesday against Chicago, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Tuch is expected to return to a prominent role Wednesday, skating on Vegas' third line and second power-play unit against the Blackhawks. The 23-year-old winger has been limited to just two games this campaign due to multiple injuries, potting one goal while logging three shots on net over that span.
Coach Gerard Gallant is hopeful that Tuch (upper body) will be ready to return Wednesday against Chicago, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Tuch has missed Vegas' last four games due to an upper-body issue, but he was on the ice for practice Tuesday, which was the first sign that he might be an option against the Blackhawks.The 23-year-old winger has only managed one goal in two games this campaign due to multiple injuries, but he'll be a worthwhile fantasy option once healthy after racking up 20 goals and 52 points in 74 games last campaign.
Tuch's (upper body) recovery process took a step back, which will result in him missing Vegas ' next two games, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Coach Gerard Gallant told reporters, "I was hoping he was going to come in for this trip. He's not coming in." Tuch started the season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed issue and will now miss at least four games due to his upper-body problem. In his only two games this year, the winger notched one goal, three shots and one hit while averaging 8:42 of ice time. Once cleared to play, the New York native should push for a top-six role, but may need to start on the third line.
Tuch (upper body) isn't expected to play Thursday against Toronto, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Tuch isn't currently traveling with the Golden Knights for their four-game road trip, so at this point it's safe to assume he'll miss Saturday's tilt in Washington and Sunday's match in Detroit as well. We'll update the 23-year-old winger's status if he links up with the team prior to one (or both) of those contests, but Tuch will almost certainly have to wait for Wednesday's home clash with Chicago for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup.
