Senators' Chris Tierney: Re-ups with club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Enjoys solid 2019-20 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Hits hiatus with flurry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: In giving mood Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Records assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Beats Devils on breakaway
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Snaps goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Records eight points in December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Collects three points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored the game-winning goal and added a pair of assists in Monday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

Tierney's line with Anthony Duclair and Vladislav Namestnikov combined for eight points in a stunning win over the Atlantic Division leaders. Tierney improved to four goals and 17 points through 31 games this season.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Delivers pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney produced two helpers and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Tierney had a strong performance, with his assists coming on Connor Brown's go-ahead goal in the second period and Vladislav Namestnikov's insurance tally in the third. Tierney is up to 14 points, 37 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating through 29 games this season. The center is on track to record a third consecutive 40-point campaign.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Sends helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. He's currently playing center on Ottawa's fourth line -- a role that won't lead to much offense for the two-time 40-point man.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Supplies assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Tierney's helper came on the first of two goals by Nick Paul in the contest. With five points in his last six games, Tierney is beginning to find his scoring touch this year. The center has seven points in 11 appearances overall while enjoying a top-six role.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Notches goal and assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored a goal and an assist with two shots and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

Tierney opened the scoring just over six minutes into the first period, driving hard to the net to slam home a Thomas Chabot rebound. 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.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Scores shorty in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney potted a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Blues.

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.

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.

March 21, 2019 08:40 PM
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.
