Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Ready for camp
Tkachuk (hand) is on the Panthers' training camp roster.
Tkachuk dealt with a hand injury during the Flames' playoff run last season, but it was never expected to interrupt his preparation for 2022-23. The 24-year-old heads into his first year with the Panthers coming off of a 104-point campaign. Tkachuk is expected to form a top-line partnership with Aleksander Barkov while also seeing first-unit minutes on the power play.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Dealt to Panthers, signs extension
Tkachuk (hand) was traded from Calgary to Florida in exchange for Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt and a first-round pick Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Tkachuk then signed an eight-year, $9.5 million AAV extension with the Panthers.
After a terrific 104-point campaign, Tkachuk entered the 2022 offseason as a restricted free agent that was looking to find a new home. The Panthers gave up a massive haul to acquire him, including 115-point winger Huberdeau. Tkachuk should immediately slot into Florida's top line alongside Aleksander Barkov while also seeing a healthy amount of power-play time. Prior to last season, the 24-year-old had never eclipsed the 80-point threshold and had just one 30-goal season (34 goals and 77 points in 2018-19).... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Won't sign long-term in Calgary
Tkachuk (hand) has notified the Flames that he will not sign a long-term deal in Calgary, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. Also, he hasn't formally requested a trade but has given a list of teams he'd be willing to sign with after the 2022-23 season (Dallas, Nashville, Vegas, St. Louis and Florida), per The Athletic.
The team has already initiated the arbitration process with Tkachuk, so it sounds like he'll spend one more season at most in Calgary before becoming an unrestricted free agent. He's likely to be traded well before then, but no matter the return the Flames might get for the 24-year-old, this is a tough bit of news for fans after fellow star forward Johnny Gaudreau departed earlier this month to Columbus in free agency....

Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Open to long-term deal to stay
Tkachuk (hand) would be open to signing a long-term contract to stay in Calgary, reports NHL.com.
Tkachuk is a restricted free agent after coming to the end of a three-year, $21 million deal ($7 million AAV). "Absolutely. I've loved it here," said Tkachuk. "I've grown up here." He also has the option of inking a one-year deal to get him to unrestricted status in 2023. Tkachuk is coming off a 104-point season (42 goals, 62 assists), which was second on the Flames to linemate Johnny Gaudreau, and his AAV will likely hit the $10 million mark.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Battled bruised hand
Tkachuk was nursing a hand injury during the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Tkachuk was involved in a few fights early in the first round, which may have been when he picked up the injury. The winger still managed 10 points in 12 playoff contests, but he was silenced in the last three games of the second round. The 24-year-old is a pending restricted free agent looking to cash in big after a 42-goal, 104-point regular season. It's unlikely his hand injury will linger throughout the offseason and it won't require surgery.... See More ... See Less

Flames' Matthew Tkachuk: Assist and fight in loss
Tkachuk notched an assist, three shots on goal and five PIM in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 3.
Tkachuk has as many fights as points through three games in this series. The winger is up to two assists, 12 PIM, five shots on net and four hits in the postseason. Time spent in the penalty box likely isn't the best use of his skills -- he had 42 goals and 62 assists in the regular season. He'll look to walk a more disciplined line in Monday's Game 4 as the Flames try to even a series in which they trail 2-1 after Saturday's loss.... See More ... See Less

With five goals and eight helpers during a nine-game point streak, Tkachuk is hot to begin the postseason. He should have plenty of chances to contribute while playing in a top-line role....
