Chris Tierney Re-Signs in San Jose
One of the players that may have flown under the radar in the 2018 season was San Jose forward Chris Tierney, who situated himself well within in the scoring ranks among forwards, 146th with 17 goals and 40 points in all 82 games for the club. He quietly went about his business and didn't cause too much of a stir.
On July 1st, Tierney went to restricted free agency and in less than three weeks, he had himself a new deal, a 2-year pact, worth $5.875 million.
The 24-year old was hovering in the team's 3rd line for the better part of the season, but did see a little bit of power play time and with some of the team's depth from last season moving on through free agency, he could certainly see an increase in offensive responsibility. With that being said, I think there's a likely increase in his projections and he could be one of those guys you could add late on in the hockey pool draft and get a good bargain on.
