  • Sabres' Matt Tennyson: Headed to Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Tennyson signed a two-year deal with the Sabres on Saturday, NHL.com's Joe Yerdon reports.

    Tennyson played 45 games for Carolina this past season, notching six helpers and registering a minus-13 rating. The 27-year-old will serve as a depth defenseman on the right side; at best, he'll play on the third pairing, and at worst, he'll spend most of the season with AHL Rochester. The first year of Tennyson's deal is two-way before it switches to a one-way in the second year.

    Hurricanes' Matt Tennyson: Suiting up Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Tennyson will play Tuesday against Detroit.

    Out of the lineup as a healthy scratch since March 14, Tennyson will finally make an appearance with Ryan Murphy (lower body) sitting out. His production on the stat sheet has been unimpressive, with the most notable stats a modest 46 hits and 34 blocks in 37 games, but he doesn't generally see a lot of ice time even when he's able to escape the press box.

    Hurricanes' Matt Tennyson: Continues to see press box time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/17) Tennyson was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Senators.

    The defenseman has seen action in just two games in the month of February, spending most of his time as a spectator in the press box. When he has been on the ice he is scoreless with a minus-6 rating over the past five outings. Coach Bill Peters isn't likely to hurry to include Tennyson into the lineup anytime soon and you should follow suit.

    Hurricanes' Matt Tennyson: Marginal role on Canes' blue line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/17) Tennyson skated a season-low 12:06 in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.

    Following a one-game absence as a healthy scratch, Tennyson returned to the lineup and extended his pointless drought to 13 games. Going forward, Tennyson is expected to continue platooning with Ryan Murphy and Klas Dahlbeck on the Canes' third defensive pairing, giving him minimal fantasy value in most formats.

    Hurricanes' Matt Tennyson: Back-to-back assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/30/16) Tennyson recorded an assist for the second consecutive game Tuesday against the Rangers.

    Tennyson has now played in nine consecutive games since being activated Nov. 12. He's still only averaging roughly 14 minutes of ice time, but he's been doing a good job of taking care of his defensive responsibilities (plus-4 rating), so it's likely he will continue to see regular ice time going forward. He's worth a speculative play in most deeper formats.
