U.S. finishes second at Four Nations

by Staff

Alex Tuch, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, had two goals and an assist as the United States finished the Four Nations Tournament with a 6-2 win against Switzerland.

The win allowed the U.S. to finish second at the tournament, which was played in Turku, Finland.

Tuch, a forward who plays for the United States National Team Development Program’s under-18 team, earned a “B” rating from NHL Central Scouting on its preliminary player to watch list for draft-eligible players in the United States Hockey League.

The U.S. was leading 2-1 in the second period when Tuch scored twice in a 1:50 span to blow the game open. He made it 3-1 at 12:55 when he knocked in a rebound in front, and at 14:55 he scored to make it 4-1.

Sonny Milano, who earned an “A” rating from Central Scouting, had a goal and two assists, and 2015-eligible prospect Jack Eichel had a goal and an assist.

“We put ourselves in a great position to win the tournament by winning [Sunday] but came up just a bit short," U.S. coach Danton Cole said. "We improved as the tournament progressed, and will take what we learned here and continue to grow as a team."
