Among all the hopes of the Montreal Canadiens, there are some curiosities. Lock Touch is one of them.
Alex’s brother, who plays for the Vegas Golden Knights, had a good college season. He had 11 points in 16 games, which is more than respectable for a freshman in the NCAA.
To stir your memory a bit, Tuch is a CH second-round pick (47th overall) of the 2020 Amateur Draft. He is 19 years old and should play at Boston University for a few more years.
At least, that’s if he’s not ready to make the leap pro next year. Because yes, it’s a real possibility.
In his view, the youngster will bring a lot to Canadians when the time comes. I remind you that once recruited, He said he believed his choice could turn into a steal within a few years.
He doesn’t lack confidence and that’s one of the reasons I like him. Truthfully, I can’t wait to see what he does in 2021-2022, as the NCAA holds a season that the pandemic won’t shorten.
In an interview with Nicholas Cloutier of TVA Sports, Tuch said he believes he could be an offensive player in the NHL, even if he turns out to be a strong striker. He also expects to be a different player from his brother.
I think I bring a lot to the table offensively. I may not be the smartest, but strength attackers are required to score in a number of different ways. I can bring a little bit of everything with my talent and my size. – Look Touch

It will be interesting to follow his progress in the coming months as he plays a second season with the NCAA ranks. He will have a more important role with his team and will be able to show his talent to all his critics.
Luke Tuch may turn out to be a gem, but you have to be patient with him.

Imagine that the Hurricanes were initially offered to Canadians number one and three to Kottkanemi in those supposed trade talks last week? And now it could be first, third, and a dose of humiliation.
