Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Slings helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch posted an assist and four PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 5.

The good part was Tuch's helper on a Chandler Stephenson tally in the first period. Unfortunately, it was Tuch's tripping minor in the third period, his second penalty of the contest, that led to the Stars' game-tying goal. Bad penalties aside, Tuch was a revelation with eight goals, four assists, 51 shots on net and 46 hits in 20 playoff outings. If he can earn a top-six role next year, he could make a big impact for fantasy managers after he lost a large chunk of 2019-20 to injuries.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch's stat line from Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 3 now has him with an assist instead of a goal.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Tallies into empty net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored an empty-net goal on three shots in Friday's 3-0 win over the Canucks in Game 7.

The 24-year-old Tuch is up to eight goals, two assists, 44 shots on goal and 34 hits through 15 playoff outings. He should continue to provide depth offense from the third line and second power-play unit.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Picks up helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He typically sees third-line usage, but a role on the second power-play unit gives the burly winger a boost in fantasy value.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Ready for restart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) is healthy and available to play, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Tuch has used the extra time off to get fully fit. Prior to getting hurt, the winger managed two goals and two helpers in his previous seven outings. The Syracuse native figures to slot back into a third-line role and could be a solid value play in DFS contests once play resumes.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Returning home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) suffered a setback in his recovery and return to Las Vegas, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Tuch was expected to play during the Golden Knights road trip but appears set to miss some additional games. With the winger unavailable, Nicolas Roy figures to continue to fill a top-six role during Mark Stone's (lower body) absence. Once both players are cleared to play, Tuch should rejoin the third line and No. 2 power-play unit.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Slated to return on road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) is expected to return at some point on Vegas' five-game road trip, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

The Golden Knights are set for a five-game road trip over the next 10 days, so there is a wide array of possibilities for the date of Tuch's return to the lineup. The fourth-year winger's activation from injured reserve will provide the first indication that he's ready to roll.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (lower body) was placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Considering Tuch has been labeled week-to-week by the organization, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him designated for IR. In his stead, Nicolas Roy should see an uptick in ice time in a third-line role. Injuries have limited Tuch to just 17 points this season, a far cry from the 52 he put up in 2018-19.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Injury considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch won't play Saturday against the Islanders and is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

"Not as bad as it could've been, but he's going to be out awhile," was how head coach Peter DeBoer put it, speaking about Tuch's status. The Golden Knights' forward figures to miss his team's next three games, and probably will be out longer than that based on the coach's words. Tuch has struggled mightily in 2019-20, only managing 17 points in 42 appearances this season.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Peter DeBoer said Tuch suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's win, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old seemed to get his left leg tangled with Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo while crashing into the boards. Tuch had a phenomenal game Thursday, picking up a goal and a power-play assist. It's unclear if the injury will be a long-term thing for Tuch, but expect the team to update his status ahead of Saturday's contest against the Islanders.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Gets on scoresheet with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch delivered an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

As a whole, Vegas' depth scoring has struggled lately, and Tuch's lack of offense fits right in with that pattern.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Tough scoring slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
