Senators' Chris Tierney: Entering contract year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney saw a dip in his numbers in 2020-21, scoring 19 points in 55 games.

Tierney is a UFA in 2022, so he could be a nice add in daily leagues as he tries to prove he deserves a new deal, either in Ottawa or elsewhere. He could be a target in the expansion draft, and his situation could change drastically if he's taken by Seattle.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Pots another game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored his fifth goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

His tally midway through the third period broke a 1-1 tie, and gave Tierney his second straight game-winning goal against Calgary. Despite his recent heroics and current top-six role, on the season the 26-year-old has a modest 13 points through 35 games.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Halts slump with GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney registered the game-winning goal with 2:26 left in the third period of Monday's 2-1 win over Calgary.

Tierney found a rebound in the slot and fired it past Jacob Markstrom to break a 1-1 tie. It was Tierney's first goal since Jan. 21, bringing to an end his 29-game dry spell. In fact, Tierney had lit the lamp three times in his first four contests of the season before falling into his two-month slump. The 26-year-old has 12 points in 34 games after a 37-point campaign in 2019-20.

Tierney had the secondary helper on Drake Batherson's second of two goals in a span of 53 seconds. The 26-year-old Tierney has only two helpers in eight games since the start of March. The veteran center is up to 11 points, 29 shots on net and a minus-10 rating in 31 outings overall.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Bags helper in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney recorded an assist, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Flames.

Tierney set up Ryan Dzingel in the first period to give the Senators a 2-0 lead. The 26-year-old Tierney has gone 23 games without a goal, and he's picked up a modest seven helpers with a minus-9 rating in that span. The veteran center has 10 points, 28 shots and a minus-7 rating in 27 contests overall. He played a season-high 21:21 in Sunday's contest, but Tierney has bounced around the lineup all year.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Adds helper in narrow loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney registered an assist Wednesday in a 2-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

With consideration to Tierney's seven points and career-high shooting percentage (16.7), he makes for an excellent, low-cost option in DFS contests. Tierney skates on the fourth line but produces at a relatively high level.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Slides helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Oilers.

Tierney had the secondary helper on Austin Watson's third-period goal, which was the last in the contest. Offense hasn't been easy to come by for Tierney -- he has three goals and an assist in nine outings.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Nabs third goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney scored a goal on his only shot and had two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Jets.

Tierney foiled Connor Hellebuyck's shutout bid with just under three minutes remaining, scoring on a redirection while driving to the net. It was the third goal in four games for Ottawa's third-line center, who's managed to score on all three of his shots on goal early in the season. Even once regression inevitably hits, Tierney is a solid bottom-six player who had 11 goals and 37 points in 71 games a year ago.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice session, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Tierney retook his spot on the third line after linking up with the first group. The 26-year-old center registered 37 points in 71 contests last year and figures to produce at a similar rate in 2020-21, starting with Friday's clash with the Maple Leafs.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Skating with second group
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney (undisclosed) was on the ice with the Senators' second practice group Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Tierney was still unable to join the main group but the fact that he is at least skating is a good sign. Still, there is just over a week left until the season opener versus Toronto on Jan. 15. The 26-year-old center garnered 11 goals and 26 helpers last year and should be capable of producing at a similar rate in a top-six role this season.

Senators' Chris Tierney: Battling minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tierney is dealing with a minor, undisclosed injury and wasn't on the ice Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Tierney isn't expected to be out much longer. The 26-year-old center signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Senators back in October, and he should push for a third-line role once he's back to full health.

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.
