For what it's worth the Wild's Jordan Greenway (112 games 28 goals) had similar goal totals to Tufte (121 games 34 goals), though Greenway had more assists.
When drafted Tufte was compared to Bjugstad and was a project. Tufte's game is better suited for the pro game then college.

A project at 25th overall? Not bashing, but aren't projects supposed to come from the later rounds?

Later in the first round? Not necessarily. Remember, a lot of these kids are 18 (or even 17) years old when they are drafted. Unless it is someone like Miro, McDavid, Matthews, etc. I'd almost consider every draft pick a project.

Drafting is a crap shoot for sure, but 25 is pretty high. I’ll have to confer with Al on that one.

I have to search for my own posts because I don’t have the data anymore.
But here it is:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8965&hilit=Draft&start=240#p379468

It’s around a 50% chance of being a bust. 35% of being a fringe or depth player. 15% of being a high end talent.

Or a 50% chance of being a player. That’s actually better than I would have thought. And yes, almost all draftees are projects in general, but a 1st rounder even at 25 is usually not described as a “project”.

Tufte was definitely a project, because he had all the "tools", but had never been tested in juniors because he was a high school kid in the US. So he was basically scoring 4 points a night against vastly inferior opponents.

We should trade him to the Vegas Goldman Knights so he can murder Patrick Brown.

Cute little story on Porco, our 5th round pick. Apparently he used to talk trash to Turco as a kid:
