Chris Tierney (undisclosed) will play Thursday night.

Tierney was out for "bumps and bruises" so it wouldn't be if Tuesday's absence was primarily motivated in a desire to get him as close to 100% as possible before the playoffs as oppose to him being simply unable to play. He has seven goals and 20 points in 77 games this season.

Chris Tierney won't play Tuesday because of some undisclosed "bumps and bruises."

Michael Haley will play in Tierney's place. Tierney has registered seven goals and 20 points in 77 games this year.
Apr 5 - 1:43 PM

Chris Tierney was the recipient of the goal award to the Sharks after an accidental own-goal by Boyd Gordon of Arizona.

Not that Tierney wasn't in the right position to make a play on the puck, or that he hadn't attempted, but Gordon gave the Sharks the extra bit of help they needed to go up 2-0. Tierney now has six goals on the season with three coming over his last five games.

Chris Tierney had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Tierney opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal at the 15:18 mark of the first period, and he assisted on Joel Ward's empty net goal. The 21-year-old has four goals and 12 points in 39 games this season.
Jan 12 - 10:46 PM

Chris Tierney expected to play Saturday night versus Toronto.

The 21-year-old forward hasn't quite had the season of improvement the Sharks were hoping for in his sophomore campaign. He's posted just eight points in 36 games, down from 21 points in 43 games last season. However, he's just up from a stint in the AHL where he had two goals and three points in three games. Perhaps that'll get him going again.
Jan 9 - 6:26 PM

San Jose has called up Chris Tierney.

Tierney only ended up spending a few days in the minors. He has three goals and eight points in 36 games with the Sharks in 2015-16.
Jan 8 - 4:02 PM

The San Jose Sharks have demoted Chris Tierney to the AHL San Jose Barracudas.

Tierney has seen 36 games with the Sharks this season with just eight points and not much else to his credit. A significant drop-off from the 21 points in 43 games with the last season. Until he improves, the 21-year-old has no fantasy value even when he's up in the National.
Jan 3 - 3:50 PM

Chris Tierney had an assist in a 5-4 overtime win Thursday night.

Tierney has three goals and eight points in 30 contests in 2015-16. He has more offensive upside than those numbers imply, but the 21-year-old isn't worth owning in standard leagues yet.

Chris Tierney will be scratched from Friday's match with the Ducks.

Tierney has posted six points and little else through 21 games thus far. Which should tell you about his fantasy viability.

Chris Tierney registered an assist in a 5-3 win over Columbus.

Tierney snapped a four-game point drought. He has two goals and six points in 21 contests in 2015-16.

Chris Tierney scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Washington.

Tierney picked up the primary assist on Mike Brown's second period goal and he scored an empty netter to extend San Jose's lead to 5-0. The 21-year-old is a useful player, but don't count of him having multi-point games too often. He played a season-high 13:44 in his role as a bottom-six forward. Brown, Tierney, Joe Thornton, Tomas Hertl and Matt Nieto scored for San Jose.

Chris Tierney will center San Jose's fourth line on Wednesday night.

He will play between Barclay Goodrow and Mike Brown, with Ben Smith serving as a healthy scratch. Tierney appeared in 43 games with San Jose last season and he contributed 21 points.

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.

Tierney had six goals and 21 points in 43 games this season. He will add some quality to Worcester's lineup as they make a playoff push in the AHL.
