The expansion Vegas Golden Knights are off to the greatest franchise start in NHL history and part of their successful 7-1-0 run can be credited to rookie Alex Tuch (pronounced TUHK), who has been impressive since being called up from the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.
Here are some excellent reasons to consider collecting Tuch this season:
Part of the exciting and unprecedented rookie carryover class, he made his debut with the Minnesota Wild last season and already has a handful of cards in Upper Deck releases such as MVP, O-Pee-Chee, and Artifacts.
He was also prominently featured in last season’s AHL set as a member of the Iowa Wild.
However, fans in Sin City will be excited to see his first cards wearing his new team’s uniform (along with a few of his teammates) in a few weeks as one of the hotly-anticipated Young Guns found in packs of 2017-18 NHL® Upper Deck Series One.
