  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Nets go-ahead goal

    Tuch scored a goal on six shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Kings.

    After Tuesday's loss to the Ducks, the Sabres shuffled their lines, with Tuch getting dropped to the third line. He still led the team's forwards with 21:24 of ice time, and his tally stood as the game-winner. Through 10 outings in January, the winger has four goals and four assists. He's up to 32 points, 104 shots on net, 32 hits, 43 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 41 appearances this season.

The 27-year-old has a modest three-game point streak going, and since returning from a lower-body injury in mid-December, he's produced three goals and 12 points in 12 games.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: First goal in nine games

    Tuch scored a goal Saturday in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.

    He had missed practice Friday because of an illness but looked solid in 19:06 of ice time during Saturday's win. Tuch opened the scoring on the Sabres' second shot on goal in the first period. He took a stretch pass from Connor Clifton and went high blocker side with a snap shot from the high slot. It was Tuch's first goal in nine games (one goal, seven assists).

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Good to go Saturday

    Coach Don Granato pronounced Tuch (illness) ready to play Saturday versus Pittsburgh, according to Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550.

    Tuch was at morning practice Saturday after missing Friday's skate. He was ill Thursday but managed to play in Montreal, picking up a pair of assists. The points snapped a four-game drought and gave the winger nine goals and 26 points in 32 games. Tuch will line up alongside Tage Thompson and Jeff Skinner on the top line, and will see first unit power-play time.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Misses practice with illness

    Per Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News, Tuch was unable to practice Friday due to an illness.

    Tuch managed a pair of assists Thursday in Montreal, snapping a four-game pointless streak. The winger has nine goals and 26 points in 32 games, playing mostly on the top line with Tage Thompson and Jeff Skinner when all three are healthy. Tuch should be considered questionable for Saturday's game versus Pittsburgh.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Four helpers in Thursday's rout

    Tuch notched four assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 9-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Buffalo's top line of Tuch, Tage Thompson and Jeff Skinner nearly downed Toronto on its own, combining for three goals and 10 points on the night. All three of them have missed time in December, with Tuch sitting for four games due to a lower-body injury, but now that the unit is fully healthy, it could be prepared to erupt. Through 27 games on the season, Tuch has nine goals and 24 points.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Two points against old team

    Tuch scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Tuch played a big part in the Sabres' third-period rally, setting up Zach Benson's go-ahead goal before scoring an insurance tally of his own. The 27-year-old Tuch has five points over five career games versus Vegas, the team he broke into the NHL with before he was traded to Buffalo in the Jack Eichel deal. This was Tuch's second game back from a lower-body injury. He's now at nine goals, 19 points, 64 shots on net, 27 blocked shots, 26 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 24 appearances this season.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Tallies two goals in victory

    Tuch netted two goals in a 5-1 win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Tuch's first goal, which came late in the second period, put the Sabres up 2-0 and proved to be the game-winner. He's on a three-game scoring streak with three goals and five points over that span. Through 19 outings this campaign, Tuch has eight goals and 16 points. That's somewhat off from his 79-point showing in 2022-23, but Tuch also recorded just 88 points in 147 appearances from 2019-20 through 2021-22, so it's not unreasonable that he's seen some decline compared to last year's highs.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Registers two-point night

    Tuch notched one goal and one assist in Friday's 3-2 win against the Penguins.

    Tuch scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    Tuch returned from a three-game absence with an upper-body injury and led all Sabres forwards with 20:29 of ice time. The 27-year-old has scored four times over his last three games, and he'll be asked to carry more of the scoring load with Tage Thompson (upper body) on injured reserve with a week-to-week status. Tuch is up to 11 points, 33 shots on net, 15 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 14 appearances. He should be a fixture on the top line going forward.
