Tkachuk scored his 14th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Wild. He fired home a deflected pass from James Neal midway through the third period, a tally that proved to be the game-winner. The 21-year-old now has 38 points in 33 games, and Tkachuk's breakout has given the Flames a strong offensive presence on their second line and helped fuel their rise to the top of the Pacific Division.
Tkachuk registered four assists and seven shots on goal in a 6-5 overtime victory against the Flyers on Wednesday. This is actually the second time this season that Tkachuk has recorded four assists in a game, but the seven shots is a season high. Those two contests account for one third of his helpers this season (24), which is just one shy of his mark in the category last season. Tkachuk also has 13 goals, giving him a healthy points per game average with 37 points in 32 contests.
Tkachuk scored a goal and three points in a 9-6 victory against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. The Blue Jackets jumped out to a 4-1 lead, but then the Flames and Tkachuk went to work. He scored the game-tying goal about halfway through the second period and then picked up the primary assist on the go-ahead marker. Tkachuk added another assist on the game-winning power-play goal. Tkachuk had a great November is now continuing his strong play into December. The soon-to-be 21-year-old has 13 goals and 32 points in 28 games.
Tkachuk posted two assists in a 4-1 victory against the Kings on Friday. The 20-year-old slowed his pace after Thanksgiving, but Tkachuk still finished November with seven goals and 15 points in 13 games. Just like last season, he's a complete fantasy asset because he averages close to 1.0 PIM per game. But in 2018-19, he's also posting more than a point per contest, and while owners should expect a decline in his 20.3 shooting percentage, Tkachuk is still a candidate to score 30 goals. He already has 12 goals, 29 points, 24 PIM and a plus-4 rating in 26 games this season.
Tkachuk scored both his team's goals in a 3-2 loss to the Canadiens on Thursday. Tkachuk's first goal came with the Habs down a man and gives him seven points so far this year with the man advantage. Meanwhile, the 20-year-old has posted two or more points five separate times already, and with seven in his last six games, he'll look to stay hot Saturday versus the Oilers.
