The Montreal Canadiens' General Manager, Kent Hughes, has officially made an offer to Luke Tuch and he will get his response today.

Hughes is waiting to see if Tuch will accept or decline to become a player for the Canadiens.

Luke Tuch will make his decision to Kent Hughes as soon as today!

See the circulating information.

"Friedman, at intermission, says that Luke Tuch will decide between his contract offer with the Canadiens, or testing the free agent market in the next 24 hours.

I guess Kent Hughes probably made him the contract offer after Thursday's game. (like with Lane Hutson)" - Scott Matla

"News from Luke Tuch who is hesitating between signing his ELC with the CH or becoming a free agent on next August 15th.

Either way, it won't be a 'gamechanger' for the organization Good if he signs, otherwise..." - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

As for what might be making Tuch hesitate, Marco D'Amico mentions this:

"The issue seems to be when the contract will start.

This season or next year."

So this will be an interesting file to follow today.

Luke Tuch, 22 years old, is the brother of Alex Tuch. He amassed 30 points in 39 games this season at Boston University and he is a second-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens in 2020.

We're talking here about a big forward who is 6 feet 2 inches and 210 pounds.

"I know a lot of people are questioning Luke Tuch, with the BU season over and Lane Hutson already signed.

He has a contract offer from the Canadiens and I'm told to expect him to make a decision, one way or the other, at some point in the next 24 hours." - Eric Engels, Sportsnet

If he signs, he could become an interesting element for the Laval Rocket, and possibly for the CH in the longer term.


According to Elliotte Friedman, there's still work to be done, but it appears like Tuck will indeed sign with the Canadiens!

Amazing news!
