Tierney tallied the game-winner in Thursday's 3-1 win over Arizona. Tierney's hot streak just keeps going; he is now riding a three-game point streak and has three goals in his last five games. The Canadian center has matched his career-high six goals. Though he plays on the bottom-six, it may be wise to pick up Tierney for a few games while he's hot.
Tierney had a goal and four shots through just 10:53 in Saturday's win over Dallas. Since a stint in the AHL, Tierney has looked motivated despite slim ice time. He has two goals and three assists in the five games since being recalled.
Tierney opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal and added an assist on Joel Ward's empty-netter in Tuesday's win over the Jets. An awful pass attempt by Dustin Byfuglien on the power play went right into Tierney's skates, then the 21-year-old took the puck straight to a prime scoring area and snapped it up high past a stunned Connor Hellebuyck. With the empty-net helper tacked on, Tierney now has five points over the last three games since returning from his latest AHL stint. He's also averaging well over 15 minutes of ice time in that span, which is an interesting development. Remember, Tierney's been a 40-goal scorer in juniors and a point-per-game man in the minors.
Tierney had an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and no shots in Saturday's 7-0 win over Toronto. It was Tierney's first game back from a short stint in the AHL. It wasn't a knock out performance, but good to see him respond in some way to his demotion, even if he didn't manage to take a single shot.
Tierney was recalled from AHL San Jose on Friday. During Tierney's brief time in the minors, he recorded a goal and two assists in two games. The former second-round pick now has 32 points in 31 AHL games, but has yet to find anything near that type of success at the NHL level. At the moment, it's unclear what role Tierney will fill in the Sharks' lineup.
