Tierney finished the season with 11 goals and 37 points in 71 games. Tierney likely would have cracked the 40-point mark for a third straight campaign had the NHL's regular season not ended prematurely. The 26-year-old pivot will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Senators have a ton of young talent at forward, particularly down the middle, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Tierney playing elsewhere in 2020-21.
Tierney has seven points in his last nine games, his strongest stretch of the year. Given that he has just 37 points all season, this could be quite the finish if regular-season games are not completed. However, it's probably not sustainable when hockey resumes, given that it took so long for it to occur. Look at Tierney as more of an option for deeper leagues in 2020-21.
Tierney dished out three helpers in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Tierney had just four assists without a goal in 13 previous February contests, so this bushel of apples came out of nowhere. It's still hard to trust Tierney despite his prominent role in Ottawa's depleted forward group, but this was a nice night.
Tierney managed an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets. Tierney set up Connor Brown for the first of his two goals in the game. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Tierney, although his goal drought extended to 12 contests. The 25-year-old has compiled 31 points, 86 shots and a minus-5 rating through 63 outings this year.
Tierney produced a shorthanded goal Monday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils. The Senators staked a comeback with a pair of shorthanded goals to give them a 3-2 advantage in the third period, but the Devils ended up knotting the score courtesy of Kyle Palmieri. As fate would have it, the road team prevailed thanks to a flawless shootout series. This was Tierney's first shorthanded goal since joining the Senators ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
