Tanner Pearson picked up an assist during Thursday's Game 1 loss to San Jose.

Pearson's scoring rates in the playoffs are far superior than in the regular season. Now through 26 career postseason games, he has nine assists and 13 points. Whereas during the regular season he has 59 points in 146 games. Some guys can just turn it up a notch at the next level.
Apr 15 - 1:44 AM

Tanner Pearson capped his sophomore season in style, with the 15th goal of the season.

Mar 24 - 4:03 PM

Tanner Pearson will be scratched from Tuesday's match for "personal reason."

Mar 22 - 8:19 PM

Tanner Pearson has been an offensive force of late with eight points in his last nine games.

Pearson also has six goals in his last 13 contests. He has been a solid performer of late and that has impressed coach Darryl Sutter. "Five-on-five he’s given us a more solid game, and obviously he’s scored, probably in our last 10 games, he’s probably got, what, six or seven? We need that. We need him to get his game back up, and with Tanner, he’s got to work from small parts of the game first, and then he has success the other way. When he stops working in the hard areas, then it looks like he’s not involved. Hey, he had to sit out a game because of that."
Mar 12 - 7:35 AM

Tanner Pearson's three game goal scoring streak ended Saturday.

Pearson has tied his career best mark of 12 goals as he had four goals during the streak. He has some fantasy value as he sees second line duty but gets little time with the man-advantage.
Mar 6 - 8:43 AM

Tanner Pearson is heating up.

With his tally during Thursday's 3-2 win over Montreal, Pearson is riding a three game goal streak with four total biscuits in the basket over that span. He's now matched his career high of 12 set last season.
Mar 4 - 2:05 AM

Tanner Pearson scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.

Feb 29 - 12:03 AM

Tanner Pearson notched two goals in the Kings’ 2-0 win against the Sabres on Saturday night.

He scored in the second period and third period. Pearson, the 30th overall pick from the 2012 draft, offers some upside on offense, even if his stats (10 goals, 26 points) don’t fully show it yet. Don’t forget he was a major factor in the Kings’ 2014 Cup run, recording four goals and 12 points in 24 games. Jake Muzzin, Rob Scuderi, Alec Martinez and Vincent Lecavalier got the helpers.
Feb 28 - 1:53 AM

Tanner Pearson netted the game-winning overtime goal for the Kings on Saturday night against the Predators.

Pearson has two goals in his past 19 games, but both have been overtime game winners. On the year, he has eight goals and 23 points, so he's not quite a usable fantasy player. Jake Muzzin notched the other goal. Nick Shore, Dwight King and Alec Martinez picked up the helpers.
Feb 20 - 10:58 PM

Tanner Pearson scored the overtime winner for the Kings on Friday.

Pearson had been a healthy scratch the last two games so this will keep him in the lineup for a while. Pearson has seven goals and 22 points in 52 games this season and is playing on a line with Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli which will help his fantasy value.
Feb 13 - 10:02 AM

Tanner Pearson will likely draw back into the lineup on Friday.

Pearson spent two straight games in the press box. However, he skated alongside Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli during Friday's practice.
Feb 12 - 12:19 PM

Tanner Pearson will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

This will be his second consecutive game in the press box. The 23-year-old has six goals and 21 points in 51 games this season. Jamie McBain and Nick Shore will also serve as healthy scratches.
Feb 11 - 7:14 PM

Tanner Pearson, Nick Shore, and Jamie McBain will be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with Boston.

Of the three, only Pearson has been able to put up a modicum of fantasy value this season. The youngster has posted six goals and 21 points in 51 games this season. Still just 23-years-old we wouldn't give up on him just yet in dynansty pools.
