"Tucker is a competitive, hard nosed player who is good in the corners, works to get the puck to the inside has a knack for finding the net," said Wings head scout Mike Grattan. "We have liked him for quite some time and are pleased to use our final tender on a player with his attributes."
"We are excited that Tucker has decided to sign in Aberdeen," said newly promoted Wings head coach Francis Anzalone. "Our familiarity with this player goes back three seasons."
