Profiles

Quotable

“Wow! The humongous power winger has vastly improved both his skating and puck skills. He is now a major load who goes just about anywhere he damn well pleases on the ice.”

From the THW War Room

  • Eldon MacDonald, THW: A few words on Alex Tuch:
    • Mr. Big - The first you notice about Alex Tuch is his size – he’s a powerhouse at 6’3, 215 lb.
    • Power forward – Alex is starting to ramp up his physicality to make use of his god-given size. He is already a strong forechecker and uses his strength and good balance to protect the puck well.
    • Skills – More than decent skills for such a big guy – a good goal scorer with soft hands around the net, a hard shot, skating which is very good with a heavy stride. Top that with good vision and you are starting to see why so many teams really like this guy.
    • Draft placement – With the dearth of Mr. Big’s in this draft, Alex is only likely to go up.
