With the 18th pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, the Minnesota Wild selected Alex Tuch.

According to Hockey's Future, Tuch is a 6-foot-3, 218-pound right wing. In 60 games with the United States Under-18 team, Tuch scored 28 goals and 32 assists for a 60-point season in 2013-14.

Before the draft, Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher told Michael Russo of the Star Tribune that were they to keep the pick, they would be inclined to use it on a skilled forward.

Goaltender was another possible angle with Boston College's Thatcher Demko on the board.

Minnesota didn't have a first-round pick in the 2013 draft. Their first selection was the 46th overall pick in round two – defenseman Gustav Olofsson.

Tuch is committed to play at Boston College.
