#12 Alex Tuch - Forward
Class Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Baldwinsville, NY
Tuch has been all over the USNTDP -- He was the second leading scorer on the U18 team in '13-'14 and was on the U17 team the year before that.
- Tuch is a 1st round draft pick of the Minnesota Wild
- The last player to don the #12 for the Eagles was another elite scorer, Kevin Hayes '14.
2014-2015 in review:
Welcome to the Heights, Alex Tuch! Tuch was the team's leading scorer at 14-14--28 as a freshman and there was some worry that he might jump ship to the NHL this year. However, as good as he is, he's a big boy and still has some development ahead of him, so he's sticking it out in the college ranks.
As the team's leading scorer from a year ago and now a sophomore, Tuch will be a top liner for the Eagles this season. Even if Jerry York tries to even out the lines a bit (and there's plenty of talent with which to do it) it's likely that whatever line Tuch happens to be on will be the one we call the "first line."

Tuch scored the game-winner against BU at Agganis last year:
Bonus highlight! He had a solid celebration on a goal earlier that night as well:
