Top Tyler Motte News

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Scores in victory

    Motte scored a goal on two shots and recorded three hits in Saturday's 5-2 Game 6 win over the Hurricanes.

    Motte opened the scoring in Game 6, firing a long-range wrist shot that made it through Antti Raanta in the first period. The 27-year-old forward has two goals in the series after he was sidelined for the final 10 games of the regular season with an upper-body injury. Motte has been productive in New York's bottom six, logging 26 hits and seven blocked shots in the playoffs.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Fills empty net

    Motte scored an empty-net goal on two shots, added three hits, blocked two shots and logged two PIM in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes in Game 3.

    This was Motte's first goal and point for the Rangers -- he was scoreless in nine regular-season games and four playoff outings since he was traded from the Canucks at the deadline. The 27-year-old winger has mainly been limited to a fourth-line role, adding eight shots on net, 15 hits, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through five postseason contests. Given his limited role, it's unlikely he'll be on most managers' fantasy radar.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Upgraded to game-time call

    Motte (upper body) will be a game-time decision versus the Penguins for Game 6 on Friday, Dan Rosen of reports.

    Motte has been out of action for the Rangers' last 15 contests due to his upper-body issue. Prior to his stint on the sidelines, the 27-year-old center was stuck in a 16-game goal drought and was pointless in his last 12 appearances.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Available if needed

    Motte (upper body) has been cleared to play, but it remains to be seen if he'll enter the lineup for Friday's Game 6 versus Pittsburgh, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Motte hasn't played since suffering an upper-body injury in a 3-0 win over the Penguins on April 7. The 27-year-old forward went scoreless through nine games after joining the Rangers at the trade deadline.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Facing long-term absence

    Motte is dealing with a "significant" upper-body injury and doesn't have a timeline for his return, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Given the uncertainty surrounding his recovery timetable, it wouldn't be surprising to see Motte land on injured reserve in the coming days. He's gone scoreless through nine games since joining the Rangers at the trade deadline, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on Motte's status.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Hurt in Thursday's win

    Motte (upper body) was hurt Thursday versus the Penguins, and head coach Gerard Gallant didn't have an update on the winger's status, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Motte received a high hit from Anthony Angello in the third period. After the hit, Motte was able to skate away under his own power to the locker room, but he didn't return to the contest. More information on his status could be available prior to Saturday's game versus the Senators. If he misses time, Ryan Reaves or Greg McKegg seem like the likeliest players to join the lineup in a bottom-six role.

  • Rangers' Tyler Motte: Headed for Big Apple

    Motte was sent to the Rangers by the Canucks on Monday in exchange for a 2023 fourth-round pick, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    Motte was struggling in the lead-up to the trade deadline, as he managed just two points in his previous 12 contests. Still, the 27-year-old center needs just two more points to set a new career best and top the 16 points he put up back in 2018-19. With the Rangers, Motte will likely slot into a middle-six role, especially while Kappo Kakko (upper body) remains unavailable.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Draws helper Tuesday

    Motte notched an assist, two hits and four PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    Motte had the secondary helper on Juho Lammikko's third-period tally. The 27-year-old Motte also had a double-minor for high-sticking, but the Canucks scored a shorthanded goal during that penalty kill. He's not the biggest scorer on the team by any means, but he's at 15 points, 80 shots on net, 80 hits, 22 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 46 contests. Two of his points have come in six games in March.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Nets insurance tally

    Motte scored an empty-net goal in Saturday's 6-4 win versus the Maple Leafs.

    Motte finished the contest with a goal, two shots, four hits, one block, and a plus-1 rating. The goal snapped a four-game point drought, and it brings Motte up to seven goals and seven assists in 42 appearances this season.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Earns two points in win

    Motte scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Monday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Motte tallied just 11 seconds into the game, and he also helped out on Travis Hamonic's second-period goal. The 26-year-old Motte has collected a goal and three assists in his last four outings. The American forward is up to 13 points, 64 shots on net, 61 hits and a plus-3 rating through 37 outings. He's a fixture in the Canucks' bottom six, so his fantasy value will be limited to deeper formats.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Grabs helper in loss

    Motte notched an assist in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Ducks.

    Motte set up Quinn Hughes' tally in the third period. This was Motte's second assist in the last three games, but he's on a nine-game goal drought. The 26-year-old forward remains limited mainly to a bottom-six role at even strength, though he plays a key defensive role for the Canucks. He's up to 11 points, 61 shots on net, 61 hits, 35 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 36 appearances overall. Motte's place in the lineup is secure thanks to his penalty-killing work.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Buries shortie

    Motte scored a shorthanded goal on five shots and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    J.T. Miller made a shot block and fed Motte for a breakaway for the Canucks' second goal. The 26-year-old Motte has found a bit of a groove in January with three goals and three assists in nine games. The American winger is at nine points, 49 shots on net, 50 hits, 24 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 27 contests. His shorthanded tally Tuesday was his first such goal since the 2018-19 campaign.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Snags pair of points in loss

    Motte recorded a goal and an assist during Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Deposits game-winner Saturday

    Motte scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Motte's tally at 4:46 of the third period stood as the game-winner. He snapped a nine-game point drought with the goal. The 26-year-old has just four points with 27 shots on net, 37 hits and a minus-4 rating through 19 appearances. While he played in a second-line role Saturday, his heavy-hitting style is better suited to bottom-six minutes.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Off protocols list

    Motte has been activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and will play Wednesday versus the Ducks, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Motte will return to his usual bottom-six role. The physical 26-year-old has three points and 35 hits through 16 contests this year, so he isn't likely to make much of an impact in fantasy.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Enters protocols

    Motte entered the league's COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    Motte joins four other teammates in the NHL protocols, and it's of course unclear when he might be able to return. The Canucks are scheduled next play Saturday against visiting Toronto.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Lights lamp Wednesday

    Motte scored a goal on two shots and added four hits in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Senators.

    Motte struck at 2:38 of the second period, and the Canucks held the lead the rest of the way. The 26-year-old has a modest three points in nine games this year, but he's added 19 hits, 16 shots on net and a minus-1 rating. The Michigan native is likely to stay in a bottom-six role, which will limit his fantasy appeal on a struggling Canucks team.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Buries equalizer in second period

    Motte scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Motte scored at 18:42 of the second period to tie the game at 2-2, but that was it for the Canucks' offense. The 26-year-old has picked up two points in six games since coming off of injured reserve after recovering from neck surgery. He's added 15 hits, four PIM and 10 shots on net as a tough presence in the bottom six.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: Nabs first assist

    Motte recorded an assist, two hits, a pair of blocked shots and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Motte set up Tucker Poolman for a go-ahead goal at 1:30 of the third period, though the Canucks' lead lasted for just 49 seconds. The assist was Motte's first point in two games since returning from offseason neck surgery. The Michigan native occasionally saw top-six usage last year, but he'll likely remain in a fourth-line role in the near term as he gets back up to NHL speed. Outside of hits -- he had 100 in 24 contests last year -- Motte doesn't add much of anything to interest fantasy managers.

  • Canucks' Tyler Motte: In Sunday's lineup

    Motte (neck) will make his season debut Sunday in Anaheim, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

    Motte was activated from injured reserve in order to play Sunday after undergoing neck surgery this offseason. The 26-year-old averaged 16:01 of ice time with nine points and 100 hits in 24 games last season.
