Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Pots goal in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Sharks in Game 4.

Tuch has supplied a goal, an assist and 12 hits in four postseason games. In the Golden Knights' 2018 playoff run, he had 10 points in 20 contests, so he's producing at his usual level even though he's on the third line this year. Tuch had 52 points in 74 regular-season contests, and may be helpful in DFS if Vegas makes a deep run.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Garners assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch registered an assist, two shots and two hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

Tuch is up to 52 points (20 goals, 32 helpers) in 72 games this season, 15 points clear of his mark from last season. He also has 177 shots and 91 hits this season, providing a little extra value as a middle-tier winger option in fantasy.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Joins 20-goal club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal and added a helper in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Tuch now has 20 goals and 51 points, both of which are career highs. He added three hits and five shots in an active effort Wednesday. He's currently skating on the second line with Paul Stastny and Mark Stone while Max Pacioretty (leg) is out of the lineup. That favorable deployment makes him a solid DFS pick for Friday's meeting with Minnesota.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Closing in on 50 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

Tuch scored the unassisted tally late in the game to produce the final score. He's up to 19 goals and 30 assists in 64 games this season, as well as 151 shots and 81 hits. Recently, he's accumulated five points over his last four games, as he's adjusted to playing on the third line.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Explodes for three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal and added two assists in a 6-2 win over the Canucks on Saturday.

He also went plus-4 and had five shots on goal, leading the Golden Knights' offense to the big victory. Tuch has 47 points (18 tallies, 29 helpers) in 61 games this year, all of which are career bests. The winger has seen his role reduced with Mark Stone in the fold, but there was enough offense for nearly everyone on Saturday.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Production waning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch only has three points -- all assists -- through 12 games in February.

The Golden Knights arguably landed the best available forward on the trade market in Mark Stone on Monday, and that has bumped Tuch down to the third line at even strength. His power-play role will remain intact; however, he's only recorded five shots over the past five games and that casts a cloud on his fantasy prospects. Tuch does have 16 goals and 27 assists -- including six power-play points -- through 56 games, but his rocket launch to fantasy stardom may be on hold.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Lights lamp against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch registered a power-play goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

Savvy fantasy owners made sure to deploy Tuch against his former team -- you know, the one that traded him to Vegas ahead of last season with the stipulation that Golden Knights GM George McPhee wouldn't take any Wild defensemen in the expansion draft. Tuch is on pace for 28 goals and 40 assists, plus he's been quite clutch based on six game-winning tallies through 43 games this season. While he's not quite in the elite tier, you could do much worse than Tuch as a No. 2 fantasy forward.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Records two points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks. He also put seven shots on net.

With 15 goals and 37 points, Tuch has matched his goal and point totals from last year in 38 fewer games. He's shooting 15.6 percent, nearly seven percentage points higher than he did last season. Tuch's fantasy value has grown tremendously over the course of this season.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Keeps rolling against Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

The 22-year-old continues to put together a breakout campaign. Tuch has scored five goals and nine points in his last 12 games, pushing his totals to 13 goals and 29 points through 33 games -- a huge jump from the 37 points in 78 games he managed in his first full NHL season.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Notches game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored the game-winning goal in overtime versus the Rangers on Sunday.

Tuch has racked up four goals in his previous six contests, giving him 12 tallies on the year. The winger needs just three more goals to match his career high from last season (15) -- a mark he might be able to reach before the start of 2019. In addition to his marker, the youngster also picked up an assist against New York.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Quietly getting it done for Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch came up with an even-strength goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime road loss to the Devils.

Tuch only managed two shots in the game, so his fantasy owners must be pleased that he at least converted one of them. The 22-year-old power forward from Boston College doesn't seem to be talked about very often, yet he's up to 11 goals and 12 assists with a plus-6 rating over 26 games for the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Compiles two points in shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch registered a 5-on-5 goal and a power-play assist in Friday's 2-0 win over the Flames.

Tuch's penchant for producing in bunches has led to five two-point outings in just 16 games since he returned from a lower-body injury. The power forward is up to six goals and nine assists this season -- one-third of his production has taken place on the man advantage -- but Tuch still seems to be flying under the radar since he helps comprise the second line in even-ice situations rather than the top unit with Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Returns to scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch had two assists -- including one on the power play -- Thursday, helping his team to a 5-3 win over Ottawa.

Tuch has scored seven points in eight games despite going scoreless four times this year. He's about as likely to score multiple points as he is to be shut out, making him a better play for those seeking cheap value and willing to take a risk in a daily situation.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Keeps rolling offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch generated a power-play assist and another 5-on-5 apple in Thursday's 5-3 road loss to the Blues.

Tuch has five points (two goals, three assists) in as many games this season. A lower-body injury caused him to get a late start, but he's on pace to double his points output from the 2017-18 campaign.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Making up for lost time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch potted two goals Sunday, contributing heavily in a 4-3 overtime home win over the Senators.

Both goals transpired in even-strength situations and Tuch's second tally sent the game to overtime. The American power winger overcame a lower-body injury and didn't make his season debut until he was featured in last Wednesday's meeting with the Canucks, but Vegas has welcomed him back with open arms and he's reciprocated to the tune of 16 shots on goal through his first three games of 2018-19.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Registers five shots Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch put five shots on net his return from injury versus the Canucks on Wednesday.

Tuch logged 7:39 of ice time that includes 3:03 with the man advantage, so it doesn't appear the club is imposing any restrictions on his minutes. The winger should be a near lock for a top-six role the rest of the way, which gives the Knights a potent second line with Tuch, Max Pacioretty and Erik Haula.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Will see first action of 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) will make his season debut Wednesday against Vancouver, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Tuch will assume a top-six role in his first action of the 2018-19 season. The 22-year-old is coming off an impressive campaign a year ago and should be deployed in fantasy lineups as long as he stays healthy.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve and is expected to make his season debut Wednesday against Vancouver, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Tuch is expected to step into a prominent role Wednesday, skating on the Golden Knights second line while also seeing time on the man advantage as a member of his team's top power-play unit. The 22-year-old winger notched 15 goals and 37 points in 78 games last season, so he's definitely worth a look in most fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Game-time call Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch's (lower body) availability for Wednesday's tilt against Vancouver won't be decided until after the game-day skate.

Reading between the lines, it appears Tuch still needs final medical clearance before he can suit up. In order to activate the winger off injured reserve, the club would need to make a corresponding roster move -- that would likely mean shipping Jake Bischoff down to the minors.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Sporting noncontact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) practiced with the Golden Knights for the first time since Sept. 30 but is still wearing a non-contact sweater, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Tuch has yet to suit up in the regular season after suffering an injury during a preseason contest in September. His return date is still uncertain, but his participation in practice indicates that it should be coming sometime soon. Vegas has three games left on its current five-game homestand, with the next one coming Wednesday against Vancouver.
