The 2014 NHL Entry Level Draft begins on June 27th and ends on June 28th this year and the Detroit Red Wings own the fifteenth pick in the draft.
Alex Tuch is ranked 12th among North American players by Central Scouting and 14th by International Scouting.
New York Hockey Journal talked to Alex Tuch about his game.
“I’m a big, strong, skilled power forward with good vision who can play all areas of the ice,” Tuch said.
He has committed to play at Boston College for the next few seasons and if the Red Wings are the team to draft him, then he is three years away from joining the team.
The Detroit Red Wings seem to like college players because it gives them two to three years to develop and become more complete players.
Alex Tuch’s breakdown:
Why He Interests The Red Wings:
|Alex Tuch would give the Detroit Red Wings a big, strong power forward, who has had a knack for scoring and knows how to use his size to create room.|
|A second or third line power forward, who has good hand-eye coordination and could be an asset in front of the net on the power play.|
