Tkachev recorded a pair of power-play assists in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Golden Knights.

Tkachev played on the third line at even strength, but a role on the top power-play unit proved fruitful. The Russian winger had primary helpers on goals by Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty, showing off some of his playmaking skill. It's unclear if Tkachev will move up in the lineup much this year, but it appears his place in the lineup should be secure. Fantasy managers in deeper formats should keep him on their radar in the near term.
