Chris Tierney knows he'll be in a battle to stick with San Jose out of training camp.

"I want to come in and earn my spot and make the team. Nothing's guaranteed," Tierney said. "But I do have the mindset like I did last year. Just come in, work hard and try to get better every day." In 43 NHL games last season, he recorded six goals and 15 assists. Tierney played well as the team's third-line center late in the 2014-15 campaign when he produced 14 points in his last 19 games. Look for him to occupy that role again this season.
