Tuch was expected to play during the Golden Knights road trip but appears set to miss some additional games.

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.
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.

This season has been a difficult one for Tuch, as he's had to work past a couple of injuries, and only once has the power forward been able to accompany his teammates on a road trip. Nonetheless, Tuch is focused on becoming a 200-foot player. "It's good to be on the PK, hopefully in the future, because sometimes you get a couple penalties in a row, and sometimes you are just sitting on the bench if you're not penalty killing, and it gets you out of the flow of the game," Tuch said.

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.
