Pittsburgh Penguins
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
$Signed a six-year, $21 million contract with the Penguins in July of 2019.
Produces assist Wednesday
LWPittsburgh Penguins
August 5, 2020
Tanev managed an assist, four hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
Tanev rushed into the zone around Canadiens defenseman Victor Mete, then set up a shot for Zach Aston-Reese. Teddy Blueger converted on the rebound to give the Penguins a 3-1 lead. While not an elite scorer -- Tanev had 25 points in 68 games in the regular season -- the speedy winger put 244 hits and 95 shots. In formats that reward physicality, Tanev is a solid depth option.

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.
