Tierney agreed to terms on a two-year, $7.0 million contract with Ottawa on Monday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Tierney failed to register a third straight 40-point season this year by just three points and likely would have reached that threshold were it not for the league going on hiatus. The center figures to continue filling a third-line role for the club this season and could push for a bigger role throughout the year, including logging more minutes on the power play.
Tierney finished the season with 11 goals and 37 points in 71 games.
Tierney likely would have cracked the 40-point mark for a third straight campaign had the NHL's regular season not ended prematurely. The 26-year-old pivot will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Senators have a ton of young talent at forward, particularly down the middle, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Tierney playing elsewhere in 2020-21.
Tierney has seven points in his last nine games, his strongest stretch of the year.
Given that he has just 37 points all season, this could be quite the finish if regular-season games are not completed. However, it's probably not sustainable when hockey resumes, given that it took so long for it to occur. Look at Tierney as more of an option for deeper leagues in 2020-21.
Tierney dished out three helpers in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
Tierney had just four assists without a goal in 13 previous February contests, so this bushel of apples came out of nowhere. It's still hard to trust Tierney despite his prominent role in Ottawa's depleted forward group, but this was a nice night.
Tierney managed an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Tierney set up Connor Brown for the first of his two goals in the game. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Tierney, although his goal drought extended to 12 contests. The 25-year-old has compiled 31 points, 86 shots and a minus-5 rating through 63 outings this year.
Tierney produced a shorthanded goal Monday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils.
The Senators staked a comeback with a pair of shorthanded goals to give them a 3-2 advantage in the third period, but the Devils ended up knotting the score courtesy of Kyle Palmieri. As fate would have it, the road team prevailed thanks to a flawless shootout series. This was Tierney's first shorthanded goal since joining the Senators ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
Tierney scored a goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Florida.
It was the first goal in 10 games for Tierney, who last found the net in a Dec. 9 win over Boston. He's generated more than one shot on goal in a game just once since the start of December but has still managed to chip in periodic offense for the Senators. Tierney has five goals and 21 points in 41 games on the season.
Tierney remains on pace for a third straight 40-point campaign, as he's on 20 points at the halfway mark of the year.
Tierney is never going to be spectacular, but he can be a decent contributor in deep leagues when he has the right matchup. He's a depth guy who has his place in a starting lineup in deeper leagues when Ottawa has a packed week of games, or when he gets a favorable matchup in daily formats.

Tierney managed an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.
Tierney set up Filip Chlapik's go-ahead goal in the second period, which produced the final score. The 25-year-old center has just three assists in his last nine games, but Tierney is at nine points in 19 games overall this year.

Tierney managed an assist and a pair of blocked shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

It was the third goal of the year for Tierney and his second in the last three games. The 25-year-old scored a career-high 17 goals in 82 games a couple of years ago for San Jose, but will be hard-pressed to reach that total with the low-scoring Senators. He had nine goals in 81 games for Ottawa in 2018-19.

Tierney's tally gave Ottawa a 3-2 lead heading into the second intermission, but St. Louis dominated the third period and walked away with the road win. After logging 48 points in his first season with the Senators, Tierney has a goal and an assist through three games in 2019-20.
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.
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.
