2019 Fantasy Outlook
After being signed by the Penguins to a six-year deal in the offseason, the gritty winger figures to slot into a bottom-six role in his new digs, but he should still be able to challenge for the 30-point threshold, a mark he missed by just one point in 2018-19. Additionally, the Penguins still have a potential spot on the top line available heading into training camp, which could open the door for Tanev to slide up the depth chart. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Toronto native's chance of earning power-play minutes are minimal. Read Past Outlooks

Assist in 200th game
LWPittsburgh Penguins
October 12, 2019
Tanev registered an assist and two hits in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Wild.
ANALYSIS
Tanev, skating in his 200th career game, had the secondary assist on Kris Letang's second-period tally. The 27-year-old winger had a career-high 29 points in 80 games with the Jets last year, and he's started with two helpers through five appearances with his new team. Tanev has also posted 23 hits and 10 blocked shots -- he finished 2018-19 with 278 hits, ranking third in the league.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
While Tanev achieved career highs across the board in 2017-18, a scant bottom-six role made it all too easy to overlook his offensive achievements as a third-year NHLer. He uncorked eight goals, 10 assists and a plus-13 rating over 61 regular-season games before scoring four times to supplement a pair of assists during the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs. Finding consistent playing time is the biggest hurdle that Tanev will need to clear on the path to fantasy relevance, but the good news is that he's no longer a perpetual press-box warmer, and most of his absences from the 2017-18 campaign were the direct result of an upper-body injury that he's since overcome. Tanev filed for arbitration and that wasn't the best look for an inexperienced player, though the two sides ultimately settled on a one-year, $1.15 million deal.
