Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Buries pair of goals in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Monday's 3-0 win over the Avalanche.

Tuch's power-play tally came at 2:53 of the second period to open the scoring. He later converted on a Mark Stone feed to double the Golden Knights' advantage. With three goals in the last two games, Tuch is starting to heat up. He has seven scores, 13 points, 29 shots on net, 12 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 16 contests this year.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Tallies with backhand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch notched a goal on three shots and added two hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Ducks.

Tuch went to his backhand to score just 2:39 into the second period, giving Vegas a 3-0 lead at the time. The 24-year-old winger had been productive from the third line with four goals, nine points, 19 shots and eight hits in 10 contests. He'll continue to be a solid depth scorer for Vegas, and that makes him viable in fantasy with the pace he's established so far.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Notches pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch produced two assists, two hits and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Kings.

Tuch helped out on Zach Whitecloud's first-period tally before setting up Chandler Stephenson's game-winning goal on the power play in the third. Through nine contests, Tuch has three goals, five helpers, 16 shots and six hits in a third-line role. Some time with the second power-play unit gives Tuch a slight boost in fantasy value, but his offense speaks for itself so far.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Nets opening tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Blues.

Tuch struck at 3:17 of the first period, but the Blues ended the opening frame ahead 3-1. Through seven games, Tuch has a strong six points, 13 shots on goal and four hits. The 24-year-old winger is seeing time on the third line, but that's more a middle-six role than a bottom-six assignment in Vegas. He's a strong player with a solid scoring touch that makes him worth a look in many fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Rakes in three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch scored a goal on four shots and supplied two assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

Tuch got his assists in the first period on goals by Shea Theodore and Alex Pietrangelo. In the third, Tuch provided Vegas' fifth goal on the power play. The three-point explosion put him at four points in four contests this year. The third-line winger has also produced nine shots on goal and four PIM. Offense runs deep in Vegas, and a role on the power play gives Tuch a regular chance to contribute.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Fills empty cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch netted an empty-net goal to seal a 5-2 win over the Ducks on Thursday.

Tuch was questionable leading into Thursday's contest, but he was able to overcome the minor undisclosed injury and open his 2020-21 scoring account. The 24-year-old winger opened the year on the third line and skated 14:06 in the game. Just two years removed from a 52-point campaign in 2018-19, Tuch will be looking to avoid injuries this season to maintain a regular spot in the lineup alongside Cody Glass and Nicolas Roy, who had the assists on his goal Thursday.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Cleared for Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Thursday's season opener against Anaheim, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Tuch has been battling a minor injury during training camp, but he'll slot into his usual spot on Vegas' third line and second power-play unit against the Ducks. The 24-year-old winger picked up eight goals and 17 points in 42 games last campaign.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Skating once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (undisclosed) skated before Tuesday's practice, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Tuch was initially considered day-to-day after missing Sunday's practice, and this was his first appearance on the ice since that absence. The 24-year-old is expected to practice with the team Wednesday, and if that comes to fruition, he'll have a chance to play in Thursday's season opener against the Ducks.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Battling minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day after missing Sunday's practice, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

The nature of Tuch's injury is unclear, and while it's not considered serious, it's worth keeping an eye on with Thursday's season opener against the Ducks looming. Even head coach Pete DeBoer expressed some uncertainty by stating that he hopes it isn't a long-term issue. Two seasons removed from a 20-goal, 52-point campaign, Tuch should handle a top-nine role once he's healthy.

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.

Golden Knights' Alex Tuch: Goal changed to assist
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.

Tuch was originally credited with the game-tying goal at 12:46 of the third period, but that goal was given to Mark Stone after the contest. Tuch still leads the Golden Knights with eight goals as well as three assists, 49 shots on net and 45 hits through 18 playoffs appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tuch leads Vegas in playoff goals, and he's also first among players on the four remaining teams. He's got nine tallies, two assists, 50 shots on goal and 45 hits through 18 games. He'll continue to be a scoring threat from the third line as Vegas looks to overcome a 2-1 series deficit.

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.

Tuch's goal provided the Golden Knights some insurance after they were frustrated by Thatcher Demko for nearly three whole games. 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: Nets series-clinching goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Tuch set up Patrick Brown for what would be the game-winning tally Saturday. The 24-year-old Tuch has three goals, an assist, 16 shots and 17 hits through six postseason games. 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.
