Senators' Chris Tierney: Returns but invisible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney returned from illness Saturday against Edmonton and logged 11:46 in a 4-3 overtime win.

He was pretty invisible to be honest. No shots, even on the power play, and just a 40 percent winning percentage in the face-off dot. The flu can take a lot out of anyone who gets it, pro hockey players included. It may take a couple more days for Tierney to get his strength back. However, you can put him back in your lineup if he's a better option than what you've got there now.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Set to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney (illness) will skate Saturday against Edmonton.

Tierney's return was expected, and he's already had success against Edmonton this year, making him a potential value play in daily leagues for Saturday's contest.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Expected to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney (illness) is on track to return against Edmonton on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Tierney had a goal in his first meeting against the Oilers this year, and his recent five-game point streak suggests that he's back on track after slumping through most of February. He's a solid option in deep formats.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Out with flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney (flu) will not play Thursday in Calgary.

In Tierney's place, Vitaly Abramov will be making his NHL debut. Tierney should be good to return to his top-six spot Saturday in Edmonton, but we'll await confirmation of that following Thursday night's contest.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Point streak at five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney provided a power-play assist in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.

The helper gave Tierney a five-game point streak, during which he's collected two goals and three assists. Tierney's first season in Ottawa has been a success, as he's extended his career high to 46 points (nine goals, 37 helpers) in 73 contests. He's been a rewarding depth addition for fantasy owners that can cover his minus-18 rating.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Sets new career mark in points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored a goal Thursday in a 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

The goal snapped an 18-game drought. But the point pushed Tierney to a new career mark in points (41) in just 64 games. He has a shot to clear 50 this year and is valuable in deep formats.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Inching towards career points mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney dished out two helpers to go with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-0 win over Anaheim.

Tierney's quietly putting together a career season, as he's already just five points shy of last year's career-high 40 in 28 fewer games. Only six of his 35 points have been goals, though, as the former Shark is converting on a career-low 7.1 percent of his shots. Considering Tierney more than doubled that rate at 14.4 percent with San Jose last season, there's some buy-low potential to be found with the 24-year-old center.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Strikes twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored a pair of goals, including the go-ahead marker, in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday.

Tierney has now scored five points in the last three games and seems to have rediscovered the form that made him a solid option at the beginning of the year. If you're looking for help in daily leagues, consider taking a chance on this heady pivot.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Provides spark in loss to Canes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney notched two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Hurricanes.

The 24-year-old had only two helpers in his prior nine games, but he was able to recapture his early-season form again for at least one night. Tierney now has four goals and 26 points through 43 games, and he's already tied his previous career high with seven power-play points (all helpers) on the year.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Brushes twine twice in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney registered a pair of goals in Friday's 4-2 road win over the Red Wings.

Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin had his stick broken on a shot attempt, and that created an instant odd-man rush for Tierney and assist-man Ryan Dzingel. Tierney would end up with another goal -- his fifth of the season -- with the net empty and only 18 seconds remaining in the contest. Packaged from San Jose in the Erik Karlsson trade, the Senators rely heavily on Tierney in special teams situations, and he's being utilized more than ever (17:20 on average) since the Eastern Conference club doesn't have nearly the amount of offensive weapons as Team Teal.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Sets up two markers Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney had a pair of assists Tuesday in a 7-3 rout of New Jersey.

With 12 assists, Tierney is running well ahead of his total from last season's 23 with San Jose. He's not a bad play in deep season-long leagues, but because he's a pass-first player at a deep position, his value is limited in leagues with a more standard player pool.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Sets up three goals Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney collected three power-play assists but still ended up with a minus-3 rating in Wednesday's 7-4 home loss to the Flyers.

Tierney's power-play apples paid him no favors in offsetting his ugly plus-minus output, but he proved to be a tremendous value play in most DFS contests on this three-game slate. Acquired in the Erik Karlsson trade, Tierney is a quality two-way forward who seems poised to take on a much larger role than he'd ever seen over his four years with the Sharks. Consider picking him up in deep season-long leagues if you're already short-staffed at the center position.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Dealt to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney was traded from the Sharks to the Senators on Thursday. San Jose has also sent Rudolf Balcers, Dylan DeMelo, Josh Norris, a 2019 second-round pick, a 2020 first-rounder and a pair of conditional picks in exchange for Erik Karlsson, Francis Perron and a first-round selection in 2019 or 2020.

Tierney swaps sweaters for the first time in his NHL career. To date, he's collected 104 points (41 goals, 63 assists) over 284 games -- all with San Jose. While the Ontario native has only averaged 14:15 of ice time in his career, that figure could rise now that he's with a rebuilding club looking for an identity and new leader after shipping Karlsson to the Bay Area. Tierney can be inserted on the power play and penalty kill, but fantasy owners need to remember that he's moved from a playoff-contending team to one with long odds of being in the top half of the Atlantic Division standings this year.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Inks deal with Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney signed a two-year, $5.875 million contract with the Sharks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

After originally filing for salary arbitration a couple weeks ago, Tierney and the Sharks were finally able to settle on a number. Tierney is coming off a career season in San Jose, setting career highs in goals with 17 and assists with 23. Tierney will now be making nearly four times what his salary was in 2017-18 as a key offensive weapon off the bench for the Sharks.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Elects salary arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney submitted his request for salary arbitration Thursday.

Tierney was an important depth scorer for San Jose in 2017-18, setting career highs in goals (17), assists (23) and shots on net (118) while averaging 16:00 of ice time in 82 contests. The fact that he's decided to file for salary arbitration should come as no surprise to the Sharks, as he's due for a substantial pay raise after taking home just $735,000 on a one-year deal last season.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Given qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney received a qualifying offer from the Sharks on Monday.

San Jose issued a "show me" contract to Tierney last July, with the third-line grinder ultimately settling for a one-year, $735,000 deal. The Ontario native would finish with a career-high 40 points (17 goals, 23 assists) over 82 games, so it's no surprise that he was tendered a qualifying offer to remain in the Bay Area.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Can't find back of net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney finished the 2017-18 campaign bogged down in a 23-game goalless streak.

Tierney's playoff contributions were limited to a meager two power-play helpers, despite averaging 1:17 of ice time with the man advantage. While he may have struggled in the closing weeks of the season, the center recorded career highs with 17 goals and 23 assists. Depending how the rest of the Sharks' lineup shakes out heading into 2018-19 -- they have a number of unrestricted free agents, including Joe Thornton (knee) and Evander Kane -- the 23-year-old could slide into a top-six role next year.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Snags helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney picked up an assist in Monday's 8-1 dismantling of the Ducks.

When your team racks up eight goals, it's hard not to tally at least a point. With his helper, Tierney ended a six-game pointless streak; however, he remains stuck in a 16-game goal drought. The Ontario native is locked into a bottom-six role but can still provide some mid-range fantasy value -- especially considering his inclusion on the power play.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Notches two points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored his 14th goal of the season and delivered an assist in Thursday's win over Vancouver.

Tierney has been a great third-line center this season, racking up 14 goals and 28 points in 58 games. The 23-year-old is locked into a depth role, but he's still one of the better bottom-six scorers in the league. Tierney now has five points in his last seven games and is valuable in some deep leagues.

Sharks' Chris Tierney: Nabs two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney dished out a pair of helpers -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's win over the Ducks.

Tierney had been held off the scoresheet in three straight games, but he got back on track in a commanding 6-2 victory over the Ducks. The 23-year-old has quietly been a decent fantasy center this season, racking up 11 goals and 21 points in 46 games. Tierney sees power-play time and produces steadily enough to warrant a look in some deep leagues.
