Wild sign 2014 1st-round pick Alex Tuch
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild have signed former first-round draft pick Alex Tuch to a three-year, entry-level contract starting next season.
The deal was made Wednesday with the Boston College forward, who had 18 goals and 16 assists in 40 games as the Eagles reached the NCAA Frozen Four. The 19-year-old from Baldwinsville, New York, in the Syracuse area, 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 was the Wild's fourth-round draft pick in 2012. The 22-year-old Gilmour 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.
