Brady Tkachuk

22-Year-Old Left WingLW
Ottawa Senators
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Tkachuk scored 17 goals and 36 points through 56 contests last season, setting new career lows in each of those categories. However, on a per-game basis, his offensive production was nearly identical to his first two seasons. In fact, the 6-foot-3 winger has scored between 0.62-0.64 points-per-game in each of his three years in the NHL. Tkachuk also ranked second among all skaters with 248 hits while averaging 18:14 of ice time. The 21-year-old will have a secure spot on the Senators' first line and top power-play unit, giving him a good chance to reach the 50-point mark for the first time in his career in 2021-22.

$Signed a seven-year, $57.5 million contract with the Senators in October of 2021.

Tkachuk (not injury related), as expected, will be in the lineup against the Sharks on Thursday, telling reporters, "I've been chomping at the bit for a while now and I'm definitely excited to go tomorrow."
ANALYSIS
Tkachuk missed the Senators' first three games as a result of his offseason contract dispute, but with his seven-year deal signed, the 22-year-old winger is set to play versus San Jose. In his first two seasons, the Arizona native was able to produce 20-plus goals and reach the 40-point threshold and should be able to surpass those marks in 2021-22 over a full 82-game season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2019
2018
Tkachuk is a tough kid with a ton of skill whose game is a lot like Washington's Tom Wilson, one of the few true power forwards in the NHL. Tkachuk's nasty streak puts his game on the edge, but fantasy owners should be happy to walk that line with a guy who has 50-point, 100+ PIM and 300-hit (and shot) potential (or more). You need to be able to swallow a putrid plus-minus to gain those hard-to-get categories, at least for the next couple years. Tkachuk is a building block for the young Sens and he could be for your specialty league, too.
The No. 4 overall pick from last year's draft impressed as a rookie, registering 22 goals and 45 points in 71 contests. Much like his brother Matthew, Tkachuk has a nasty streak to his game, which led to him racking up 75 PIM and 174 hits last season. The 19-year-old winger is likely to be a liability in the plus-minus department, but he should contribute in every other category this campaign, especially if he earns the trust of new head coach D.J. Smith and averages more than the 16 minutes per game he logged in 2018-19. Should that happen, Tkachuk could easily post upwards of 25 goals, 50 points, 200 hits and 1.0 PIM per game in 2019-20.
The Senators selected Tkachuk, 18, fourth overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. There's a reason GM Pierre Dorion and Co. spent such high draft currency on him, passing on Filip Zadina (Detroit) in the process. Last season, playing at Boston University, Tkachuk tallied 31 points in 40 games, posting a plus-15 rating along the way. Ottawa desperately needs scoring after trading away Matt Hoffman, and while the left winger does not currently possess the scoring touch of Hoffman, Tkachuk does profile as a playmaking forward who, with time, should be able to notch 20-plus goals over an 82-game span. The rebuild is on in Canada's capital, and with it comes an influx of young talent to assess. Monitor Tkachuk's training camp closely. Should he crack the Opening Night roster, he is worth taking a late-round flier on, especially in dynasty formats.
