Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Eligible for taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan cleared waivers Saturday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Tynan has been assigned to AHL Colorado and now becomes a candidate for the Avalanche's taxi squad. The 28-year-old center scored five goals with 42 assists over 42 AHL games in 2019-20.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Waived by Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colorado placed Tynan on waivers Friday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

Tynan appeared in 16 games with the Avalanche last season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him end up on Colorado's taxi squad, but he won't see enough NHL action in 2020-21 to warrant fantasy consideration.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Signs one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan inked a one-year, two-way contract extension with Colorado on Thursday.

Tynan appeared in just 16 games for the Avs this season, tallying one helper, seven shots and seven hits while averaging a mere 8:28 of ice time. In the minors, the center was significantly more productive, as he racked up 47 points in 42 contests with the Eagles. The 28-year-old should get an opportunity to secure a spot on the 23-man roster coming out of training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche reassigned Tynan to AHL Colorado on Thursday.

The 27-year-old was lifted from the minors Friday and saw action in the past two games with the big club. Tynan will head down to the AHL, where he's racked up 40 points in 34 games.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Called up from AHL Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was promoted from the minors Friday.

Tynan is leading the Eagles with 40 points this year, which is no doubt the reason he earned his promotion from the minors. If the center gets into the lineup for the Avs while Nazem Kadari (lower body) is sidelined, it will likely be at the expense of Vladislav Kamenev.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Drops to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche waived Tynan for the purpose of assignment to AHL Colorado on Sunday, Adrian Dater of reports.

Tynan toiled in the bottom six as the Avalanche worked through an assortment of injuries, but now that the team is getting healthy, he will head back to minors. The 27-year-old forward posted an assist and seven shots on net over 14 games, but he's had plenty of success in the AHL with 12 points over 10 contests.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Collects first career point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan registered an assist in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Tynan got the monkey off his back by setting up Tyson Jost's second-period tally that gave the Avalanche a 7-1 lead. The 27-year-old had no points through 13 career games entering Saturday, with 10 of those games coming in 2019-20. He's added six shots on goal and four hits this season, but once the Avalanche get some of their injured forwards back, Tynan will likely return to AHL Colorado.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Still searching for point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan has no points with a minus-2 rating and five shots on net in 10 games this season.

The 27-year-old still doesn't have a point in 13 career NHL games. The good news, though, is he played a season-high 11:01 on Friday night against the Blackhawks. In that game, Tynan posted a shot and two hits. Maybe that's a sign that he will break through soon, but until he does, his fantasy value is very limited.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Still pointless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan went without a point or shot in a 3-2 victory against the Flames on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old has appeared in six NHL games this season, and he's still searching for his first point. He played in three games during the 2016-17 season as well, and didn't tally a point in any of those contests either. Tynan doesn't shoot much or engage in physicality, so he's one to avoid in the fantasy arena.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Ascends to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Tynan from AHL Colorado on Wednesday.

Tynan tied for the team lead with 71 points in 71 games for AHL Chicago last year, and he's off to another hot start by posting 12 points over the first 10 minor-league games this season. The 27-year-old hasn't played an NHL game since suiting up three times for the Blue Jackets during the 2016-17 campaign. The 5-foot-9 winger figures to slot into the bottom six Thursday against the Predators since Mikko Rantanen (lower body) is still on the mend.

Avalanche's T.J. Tynan: Lands two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan agreed to terms on a two-year, two-way contract with Colorado on Tuesday.

Tynan hasn't appeared in the NHL since 2016-17 when he logged a trio of games for Columbus. The 27-year-old racked up 12 goals and 59 helpers in 71 contests for AHL Chicago last year. While likely a long shot to make the 23-man roster, the Illinois native should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the 2019-20 campaign.

Golden Knights' T.J. Tynan: On waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was placed on waivers by Vegas on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sportsreports.

Tynan notched 12 goals and 29 helpers in 72 outings with AHL Cleveland last season -- earning himself a two-way contract from the expansion franchise during the summer. Assuming he clears waivers, the 25-year-old will report to AHL Chicago, where he will likely spending the majority of the 2017-18 campaign.

Golden Knights' T.J. Tynan: Garners two-year, two-way deal with Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Golden Knights on Saturday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Instead of lazily writing Tynan off for his diminutive stature -- he's just 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds -- it appears that Vegas is realizing the forward's upside. The Illinois native is a deft passer who could thrive on an energy line. He posted 12 goals, 29 assists, and a plus-14 rating over 72 games for AHL Cleveland this past season. Expect growing pains coupled with flashes of offensive potential from Tynan as he grows along with the Golden Knights.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Sent down Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Monday.

The rookie is pointless in three games with Columbus this season, but he's been better in the minors, tallying 30 points in 55 games. He has bounced between the AHL and NHL lately, and seems to be the organization's go-to guy for call-ups when forward depth is needed.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Turns right back around to parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Thursday, TSN reports.

Tynan was sent down to the minors on Wednesday, only to get rerouted back to the parent club in quick fashion. We can't say we're surprised, as winger Josh Anderson (lower body) could miss a week of action and Tynan holds promise as a speedy forward who proved in the lower ranks that he can handle the penalty kill.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Moves back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was returned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

The Illinois native made his NHL debut against the Devils on Tuesday night, recording an empty shot on goal through 7:39 of ice time. Tynan is tiny by professional hockey's standards at 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, but he's a skilled playmaker with tremendous on-ice vision. The 25-year-old will pick up where he left off with the AHL's Monsters, having secured seven goals and 23 helpers in 55 games this season.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Back at top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After being sent back to the team's AHL Cleveland affiliate Sunday, Tynan was recalled again Monday on emergency conditions.

Tynan will serve as the team's 12th healthy forward following the news that Josh Anderson (lower body) is expected to miss at least a week. He's yet to draw into a contest at the top level, but has a decent shot at finally cracking the NHL lineup Tuesday. Even so, the 25-year-old forward is unlikely to do enough to gain fantasy consideration in either season-long or daily lineups.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan was called up to Columbus on an emergency recall Friday.

The center has been a potent scorer dating back to his college days at Notre Dame, and this year has tallied a stout 30 points in 55 games with AHL Cleveland. Without an NHL appearance to his name, it's unclear exactly what impact Tynan will have in his first stint in the big league, but if past history stands, he should be at least a decent point scorer.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Cleared for reassignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan (arm) has been reassigned to the minors after being cleared to return to action, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Tynan was injured in one of the first training camp practices, which likely forced the Blue Jackets to keep him on the roster longer than originally anticipated. The 24-year-old center has spent the last two campaigns in the AHL following a four-year collegiate career with Notre Dame. As part of the Calder Cup Champions last year, the 24-year-old tallied 46 regular season points before adding another six during the playoffs.

Blue Jackets' T.J. Tynan: Sustains possible arm fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tynan suffered a possible arm fracture when he was hit by a puck in practice last week, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Tynan, Columbus' No. 2 prospect at center (per Hockey's Future), will likely have to put his NHL debut on hold due to this injury. The 24-year-old has displayed playmaking skills, namely in setting up scores, as evidenced by 40 assists with AHL Lake Erie last season and back-to-back 45-plus point campaigns. The good news is that the start of the season is still over a month away, so the Illinois native has time to heal.
