Tkachuk tallied two assists, three shots and 17 penalty minutes during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals. Tkachuk scrapped with Capitals defenseman Madison Bowey in the second period, but added a couple of helpers to bring him to 10 goals and 20 points in 28 games in his rookie campaign. He's on his way to being a multi-category stud just as his brother Matthew is for the Calgary Flames, and he should be on the fantasy radar for many years to come.
Tkachuk picked up an assist Saturday in a 5-2 loss to Montreal. He snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper. Tkachuk still has 17 points in 23 games, a total that's solid for a teenage rookie. But you need to use caution because of the depth of this drought. Tkachuk needs to prove he is on the way back up and fast before he's fantasy worthy.

Tkachuk seems to have recovered well from his leg injury, scoring in just his second game back with the Senators. If he's back to full strength, he'll be a big help to Ottawa's attack as the season continues. As for now, play him regularly if he's on your team and monitor him if someone wants him.
Tkachuk was scoreless in his return to the ice from a leg injury, as his team fell 5-3 to the Golden Knights on Thursday. Tkachuk's ice time of 14:07 was just 23 seconds less than his most recent game on Oct. 15, so Guy Boucher clearly believes he is ready to go at full strength. If you own him in a dynasty league, it's time to activate him again.
