Storm goes ‘stateside’ for fifth round choice

With their first of two picks in the fifth round of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection, the Storm chose Alex Tuch of the Syracuse Stars.  The Bladwinsville, New York native played 26 games last season collecting 88 points.

OHL Central Scouting… Alex Tuch Player Profile – Alex is a highly skilled centre that has the potential to be a very dominant player at the OHL level.  He has great size, skill and skating ability.  Alex is an offensive threat every time he is on the ice and is very dangerous with the puck on his stick.  He has a very good and accurate shot which he uses from all over the ice.  He plays the point on the powerplay and does a very good job of distributing the puck and usually gets the puck through when shooting from the point. Alex has a long and powerful stride that allows him to get to top speed in just a few strides.
