Minnesota Wild Sign Boston College’s Alex Tuch, 2014 First-Rounder, to 3-Year Deal
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild on Wednesday signed former first-round draft pick Alex Tuch to a three-year, entry-level contract starting next season.
A forward at Boston College, Tuch, 19, had 18 goals and 16 assists in 40 games as the Eagles reached the NCAA Frozen Four. He was taken by the Wild in 2014 with the 18th overall selection.
The Wild signed Tuch's teammate, forward Adam Gilmour, to a two-year, entry-level contract Monday that also starts next season. Gilmour, 22, was the Wild's fourth-round draft pick in 2012. He had 12 goals and 14 assists in 41 games this season for Boston College.
Last month, the Wild signed forward Mario Lucia, their second-round draft pick in 2011 who played at Notre Dame.
