Top Tomas Tatar News

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Ready to rock

    Tatar (COVID-19 protocols) will be activated off the non-roster list and return to action Tuesday versus the Bruins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar is expected to return to a second-line role versus Boston following his three-game absence. The 31-year-old winger has picked up 14 points through 30 contests this year.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Tatar entered the COVID-19 protocols Sunday, according to Sam Kasan of the Devils' official site.

    The Devils removed five players from the COVID-19 protocols Sunday, but now they will be forced to play a few games without Tatar, who has been productive in his first year with New Jersey. Tatar has six goals and eight assists across 30 appearances in 2021-22.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Scores on breakaway

    Tatar scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

    Tatar brought the Devils within a goal after scoring on a breakaway set up by Dougie Hamilton in the second period. That was it for the Devils' offense in the contest. The 31-year-old Tatar has five markers, six assists, 43 shots, 21 hits and a minus-1 rating through 21 contests. He's been reasonably effective in a middle-six role lately, with eight of his points coming in the last 11 games.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Adds breakaway goal late

    Tatar scored a goal on his only shot in Friday's 4-2 loss to Nashville.

    Tatar took a perfect pass from Andreas Johnsson and beat Juuse Saros on a breakaway to close out the scoring with 28 seconds remaining in the third period. It was the third goal of the year for the first-year Devil, who is starting to heat up with a point in six of his last eight games. All three of his goals have come during that stretch.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Three points in last four games

    Tatar has amassed a goal and two assists in his last four games.

    Tatar produced an assist in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers. The winger went through a six-game drought recently, but he's bounced back with stronger play recently. Overall, he's at six points, 23 shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-1 rating through 14 appearances. He may move around the lineup, but don't expect Tatar to produce much more offense than a middle-six winger.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Notches helper Friday

    Tatar recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Tatar opened the season in a third-line role, but it was that unit centered by Dawson Mercer that created Andreas Johnsson's third-period tally. A somewhat streaky scorer, Tatar put up 30 points in 50 games with the Canadiens last year, although he saw no playing time after Game 5 of the first-round playoff series against the Maple Leafs. The Czech winger's role will likely go a long way in determining his level of production this year, but he should move up the lineup if head coach Lindy Ruff needs to shake things up.

  • Devils' Tomas Tatar: Spotted at practice

    Tatar (undisclosed) skated with Yegor Sharangovich and Jack Hughes during Friday's practice, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Tatar has missed Montreal's last 17 games, including the playoffs, but his presence on the ice Friday all but confirms he's no longer dealing with that injury. The 30-year-old winger picked up 10 goals and 30 points in 50 regular-season contests with the Canadiens in 2020-21 and should be able to produce 20-plus goals and 55-plus points with relative ease if he's able to stay healthy.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Signs with New Jersey

    Tatar (undisclosed) signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Devils on Thursday, The Fourth Period's David Pagnotta reports.

    Tatar was a solid contributor in a middle-six role for the Canadiens last season, racking up 10 goals, 30 points, 82 shots and 63 hits while averaging 14:59 of ice time through 50 contests. The 30-year-old winger will likely skate on New Jersey's first or second line and should produce similarly in 2021-22, making him a nice secondary fantasy option.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Remains shelved

    Tatar (undisclosed) won't play in Game 2 versus the Lightning on Wednesday, John Lu of reports.

    At this point, it's hard to imagine Tatar will be featuring at any point in this series considering he has been out of the lineup for the last 13 contests. In terms of the left-wing spot with Tatar still on the shelf, Joel Armia will return to the fourth line while Artturi Lehkonen mans the top trio.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Still out Monday

    Tatar (undisclosed) will remain on the shelf heading into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning on Monday, John Lu of reports.

    Tatar has missed 12 straight contests for the Habs and could struggle to even break into the lineup once cleared play, especially if Joel Armia (not injury related) and Jake Evans (concussion) are both available. With Tatar set to hit free agency this summer, it's possible he has played his final game in a Habs sweater.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Won't play Thursday

    Tatar (undisclosed) will remain unavailable for Thursday's Game 6 clash with Vegas, John Lu of reports.

    Tatar will be out of the lineup for the 12th straight contest. Even before he was hurt, the winger was stuck in a 17-game goal drought during which he managed just four helpers while averaging 14:37 of ice time. Even once cleared to play, Tatar is far from a lock to break into the lineup, especially once Jake Evans (concussion) is cleared to play.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Remains out Tuesday

    Tatar (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 versus the Golden Knights.

    Tatar will miss his 11th straight contest with the injury. There's been no word of the winger's timeline for a return. The 30-year-old's next chance to return is Thursday's Game 6 in Montreal.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Out again Sunday

    Tatar (undisclosed) will not suit up for Game 4 against Vegas on Sunday, per

    Sunday's contest will mark Tatar's 10th consecutive absence but he was on the ice during warmups prior to Game 4. It's unclear if he's nearing a return or if he could be ready to go at some point during this series. The veteran forward will be questionable for Game 5 on Tuesday.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Still not ready to return

    Tatar (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Friday's Game 3 versus Vegas, John Lu of reports.

    Tatar will miss a ninth straight game Friday and the Canadiens have yet to release an expected timetable for his return, so at this point he can be considered out indefinitely. The 30-year-old winger has picked up one helper and 17 hits through five contests this postseason.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Out again Wednesday

    Tatar (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights.

    Tatar remains sidelined by the mystery injury. It's unclear if he'll be able to return when the series shifts to Montreal for Friday's Game 3.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Out for Game 1

    Tatar (undisclosed) will not be available for Game 1 against Vegas on Monday, reports.

    There hasn't been much information on Tatar's injury but he'll miss his seventh straight game Monday. At this point, it's unclear if the veteran forward will be able to return during this series against Vegas. He has one point and 17 hits in five playoff games this season.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Missing Game 4

    Tatar (undisclosed) will not be available for Game 4 against the Jets on Monday, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

    As expected, Tatar will miss his sixth straight game, and there's been little information regarding the severity of his injury. The 30-year-old had just one assist and a minus-2 rating in five postseason games prior to being injured. If Wednesday's Game 5 is needed, Tatar will be questionable until another update is available.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Not playing Sunday

    Tarar (undisclosed) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's Game 3 against the Jets.

    Tatar has been out of action since Game 5 against the Maple Leafs, but the Canadiens have fared just fine without him, winning the last two games against Toronto to win that series 4-3 before racing out to a 2-0 series lead over Winnipeg. With Game 4 scheduled for Monday, the 30-year-old winger seems unlikely to dress for that contest after missing Sunday's game, but official word on Tatar's status should come down prior to Monday's 8:00 p.m. EDT puck drop.
