Tierney scored two goals Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers. He sat out the previous contest with an upper-body injury. The fourth-liner returned to the ice in style, firing five shots on goal and skating to a plus-3. Tierney has now cracked the 20-point plateau in each of his first three NHL seasons, and he's shown development while seeing his ice time increase steadily (up to 14:32 on average this year).
Tierney (upper body) is in line to play Tuesday against the Rangers, CSN Bay Area reports. In his anticipated return to action, look for Tierney to center the Sharks' fourth line Tuesday, flanked by Timo Meier and Joonas Donskoi. The 22-year-old's fantasy impact has been modest this season, as he's recorded just 18 points and four PIM in 73 games to date.
Tierney (upper body) did not play in Saturday's game against the Predators due to an upper-body ailment, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports. The fourth-liner just missed time due to an illness, now he is back on the shelf again. When healthy he isn't a high-value option for fantasy owners.
Tierney (illness) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Wild. Tierney is centering the fourth line with Michael Haley and Timo Meier, while Danny O'Regan is taking a seat in the press box. He's managed just 18 points and 77 shots on goal through 71 games, so Tierney isn't a high-value option in fantasy.
Tierney did not dress Monday against the Stars as he is dealing with the flu, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Tierney is a fixture in the Sharks' lineup -- having played in 71 games this year -- but he's only managed a paltry 18 points and 77 shots on goal with an average ice time of 14:37. Assuming his ailment isn't that serious, he could return Tuesday in Minnesota, but if not, Friday's road date with the Stars would be his next opportunity to suit up.
