So much for the summer hockey doldrums. Alex Tuch has the cure.
This year’s Boston College-bound first round pick of the Wild went for a hat trick on Wednesday at the Under-17 National Junior Evaluation Camp, which I, like many of you I’m sure, just found out was a thing.
Here’s the video:
Unsurprisingly, Tuch scores two goals from right where he should be: camped in front of the net. However, for future broadcasters of Alex’s games, please stay away from the oh-so obvious “Tuch/Tuck” pun when he scores from in close. You’re better than that.
Well done, young Mr. Tuch. And thanks for the boredom cure on a hot August day.
