Fantasy Summary

Highly productive playmaking centerman. Great speed through the neutral zone, excellent puck handling skills. Undersized, which will hold him back, but has enough skill to eventually overcome the size deficiency. Natural centerman but will likely end up on the wing at the professional level. Tufto’s fantasy value will come in the form of goals, assists, and SOG.

Observations: April 2021 – After an illustrious career at Quinnipiac, where he scored 168 points in 139 games, and was named captain for his senior season, Tufto inked an entry level contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning. His size is a concern as he stands at only 5-7, but Tufto’s playmaking and vision are both high end. He should have no issue developing into a high caliber AHL scorer, but I don’t think there’s tons of NHL upside in his game. Think Rocco Grimaldi, but with some more flair to his game. Alex Taxman
