Published April 14, 2024 at 12:18

Elliotte Friedman, from Sportsnet, has just revealed that Kent Hughes is going to add a big forward to his organization today. Luke Tuch is officially going to sign!

"There are still details to be worked out, but it looks like Luke Tuch, a second-round pick in 2020, will sign with the Canadiens." - Elliotte Friedman

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

We are talking about a big forward, 6 feet 2 inches and 210 pounds.

According to information circulating in the last few hours, Tuch had received a contract offer from the CH at the same time as Lane Hutson, or thereabouts, and he was supposed to give his response today (whether he accepts or declines).

It appears he has made his decision!

Therefore, this is likely to be the 47th contract used by the CH (out of a maximum of 50).

Details will follow.
