Calgary's power play was in a 2-for-31 slump when coach Glen Gulutzan made some personnel changes to his top unit on Thursday. One move was inserting Tkachuk into the role of net-front presence.

Dec. 10, 2017 Tkachuk had two goals as the Flames rallied for a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. This rare outburst shouldn't be expected from Tkachuk, who scored his second into an empty net.
Dec. 7, 2017 Tkachuk received a one-game suspension from the NHL for unsportsmanlike conduct during Wednesday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The suspension is the third in 103 career games for Tkachuk. The 19-year-old is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and will forfeit $11,280.49.
Dec. 1, 2017 Tkachuk recorded his 13th assist of the season Thursday. Tkachuk has yet to go more than two straight games without a point. The 19-year-old became the second-youngest player to reach 100 games played in franchise history, behind only Dan Quinn.
Nov. 20, 2017 Tkachuk had two assists at Washington on Monday in his return from a one-game suspension for his role in a brawl at Detroit last week. Tkachuk has a goal and five assists in his last five games.
Nov. 17, 2017 Tkachuk has been suspended one game for triggering a mini-brawl in Detroit on Wednesday night by tapping Luke Witkowski on the back of the leg as he was being escorted off the ice by officials. Tkachuk ignited two fights when he wacked Witkowski in the back of the leg as Witkowski was walking down the tunnel and barking at the Calgary bench. Tkachuk, 19, is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the NHL's most irritating players. He was suspended two games last season for an elbow to the head of Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.
Oct. 25, 2017 Tkachuk had a goal in regulation and the shootout as the Flames beat Nashville 3-2 on Tuesday. All three of his goals have come in two games.

March 18, 2017 Tkachuk posted a goal and an assist Friday while finishing at plus-3. This was a good sign for Tkachuk's fantasy owners after it appeared he might be hitting the rookie wall. Tkachuk had just three points in his previous eight games. He's still fifth among first-year players with 46 points.
Feb. 25, 2017 Tkachuk registered a pair of assists Friday. Tkachuk moved past Johnny Gaudreau for the team lead with 30 assists. Eight of those have come in Calgary's last eight games, a span in which he's also scored twice. The rookie is a plus-7 during the Flames' current 4-0-1 stretch.
Feb. 16, 2017 Tkachuk's faceoff win led to his game-tying goal, and the rookie later assisted on the winner to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night. Tkachuk has totaled two goals and three assists over the past four games.
Feb. 5, 2017 Tkachuk had a goal with an assist Sunday. This snapped a three-game point drought.
Jan. 18, 2017 Tkachuk had two assists in Tuesday's win over Florida. Tkachuk took over the team lead in assists from Dougie Hamilton with 21, including 12 in the past 14 games.
Jan. 12, 2017 Tkachuk had a power-play goal, an assist and two penalty minutes Wednesday. The rookie has 12 points in his last 11 games and ranks third in the NHL with 76 penalty minutes.
Jan. 8, 2017 Tkachuk had an assist Saturday to extend his point streak to nine games, the longest such streak for a rookie this season. He has one goal and nine assists over that stretch.
Jan. 7, 2017 Tkachuk had an assist Friday to extend his point streak to eight games. He has one goal and eight assists over that stretch.
Jan. 1, 2017 Tkachuk extended his point streak to six games with an assist and the Flames beat the Coyotes 4-2 on Saturday night. Tkachuk's point streak ties the New York Rangers' Brady Skjei for longest by a rookie this season.
Dec. 28, 2016 Tkachuk had an assist and the Flames beat the Avalanche 6-3 on Tuesday night. Tkachuk has a goal and seven assists in his last seven games, and is tied for fifth among rookies with 13 assists on the season.
Dec. 21, 2016 Sam Bennett got the Flames on the scoreboard early in the third period Tuesday after taking a nice pass from Tkachuk, who has six assists over the last five games. Tkachuk now has six goals and 12 assists on the season.
Nov. 17, 2016 Tkachuk scored the tying goal in the third period before the Flames went on to beat the Coyotes 2-1 in overtime Wednesday. The sixth overall pick in 2016 has four goals and three assists in his first 14 NHL games.
Nov. 10, 2016 Tkachuk (cut on hand) returned Tuesday after missing two games, not recording a point in 17:52 of ice time. Tkachuk joined Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik on the second line. The sixth overall pick in 2016 has three goals and three assists in his first 12 NHL games.
Nov. 4, 2016 Tkachuk recorded his first two-goal game, including the game-winner with 4:21 to play, as the Flames won 3-2 in San Jose on Thursday night. It was certainly a surprising performance by the 18-year-old, who thought he would be scratched after scoring only one goal in his first nine NHL games. ''I woke up this morning not really expecting I was playing,'' he said. ''I got the news I was playing and got fired up pretty quickly. I was running on adrenaline tonight, that's for sure.''
Oct. 29, 2016 On Friday, Tkachuk played in his seventh game, creeping closer to the point where the Flames need to make a decision on whether to send him back to London of the OHL. If he plays in a 10th game, the first year of his entry-level contract will kick-in.

2018-04-09 analysis This comes as positive news for the player, as he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Tkachuk made notable strides in the past season, becoming more of a presence on the scoresheet and during the course of games. After scoring 13 goals as a rookie in 2016-17, Tkachuk potted 24 markers in 2017-18, including 10 on the power play. The sixth-overall pick of the 2016 draft, Tkachuk

2018-03-28 analysis Tkachuk has missed the last six games, but the team had been reluctant to change his "day-to-day" status until now. The second-year winger's 2017-18 output includes 24 goals, 25 assists -- not to mention 17 points on the man advantage -- through 68 games. Still, his rapid ascension among the forward ranks is not the least bit surprising, though, as the Flames took the hard-nosed skater sixth overa

2018-03-21 analysis Tkachuk will miss his fifth consecutive game due to his upper-body problem. Prior to getting hurt, the Scottsdale native was bogged down in an eight-game goal drought in addition to going pointless in four straight. Despite the recent lack of production, the winger should resume top-six minutes once given the all-clear to return -- although when that will happen remains to be seen.

2018-03-17 analysis Tkachuk thus can be ruled out for his third-and-fourth-straight games for the Flames as he continues to nurse an upper-body injury stemming from a collision with the Islanders' Mathew Barzal. The team should update his status again when it returns home from the west coast swing, but Tkachuk's next opportunity to play arrives Wednesday.

2018-03-16 analysis This news doesn't come as a surprise, as it was reported Thursday that Tkachuk has no timeline for his return. Calgary is in serious jeopardy of missing the postseason, and losing its second-highest scorer -- No. 19 has 24 goals through 68 games -- for any length of time is obviously not going to help matters.

2018-03-13 analysis Tkachuk departed Sunday's game against the Islanders early because of the issue after tripping over the Islanders' Mathew Barzal. His absence from the lineup boosts Sam Bennett into a top-six role, with Michael Frolik being a top candidate to join the power play. Tkachuk will now take aim at rejoining the action Friday against the Sharks.

2018-03-12 analysis During the play, Tkachuk tripped over Barzal, who was down on the ice, and appeared to hit his head or neck against the boards as he tumbled over, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports. Tkachuk has been especially hot since the calendar turned to 2018, reeling off 25 points (14 goals, 11 assists) in 30 games, and should have his status updated before Tuesday's game against Edmonton. If he's un

2018-02-24 analysis Tkachuk is on fire right now -- he's riding a six-game, eight-point streak that includes four goals. And he has 11 points (eight goals) in his last nine games. Tkachuk is taking a step forward from his rookie season and has a bright, if not abrasive future.
2018-02-24 update Tkachuk had two helpers in a 5-1 win over the Avalanche.
2018-02-15 analysis The two-point showing improves Tkachuk to 21 goals and 20 assists through 56 games for the campaign, as he continues to build on last season's strong rookie showing. Additionally, his 13 points with the man advantage, 145 shots and 47 PIM check out as solid peripheral numbers. Tkachuck is locked into a top-six role and skates with the No. 1 power-play unit, so fantasy owners can expect the 20-year
2018-02-15 update Tkachuk scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Thursday's 4-3 win over Nashville.
2018-01-26 analysis Tkachuk did everything he could to try and help the Flames win the Battle of Alberta, striking twice in regulation and converting on a nice move in the shootout. The feisty forward has been hot of late, scoring six times in his last seven games. Tkachuk is now up to 16 goals and 34 points in 47 games on the season and is thriving as a top-six forward. The 20-year-old has a very high fantasy ceilin
2018-01-26 update Tkachuk netted a pair of goals in Thursday's shootout loss to the Oilers.
2018-01-13 analysis The sophomore has now collected four tallies and three helpers through his past six games and is up to 29 points -- 12 goals -- for the campaign. Tkachuk should cruise past last season's numbers, and he's also continued to provide a nice boost in the PIM column. Savvy keeper/dynasty owners should probably also view this as a buy-low spot, as power-forward types like Tkachuk are usually a little sl
2018-01-13 update Tkachuk recorded a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating during Friday's 4-2 win over Florida.
2018-01-01 analysis The 20-year-old ended the year on a high note, posting six goals and seven points in his final 10 games. During that stretch, Tkachuk has been a complete fantasy asset, also contributing 2.7 shots per game and nine penalty minutes. Tkachuck hasn't spent as much time in the penalty box this season, but as a result, he's receiving more ice time and scoring more goals.
2018-01-01 update Tkachuk scored twice and posted five shots on goal in a 4-3 overtime victory against the Blackhawks on Sunday.
2017-12-10 analysis Tkachuk returned from a one-game suspension for spearing and made an immediate impact. The feisty forward was credited with five shots on goal in 16:02 of ice time. The 19-year-old has aided fantasy goers with 19 points and 29 PIM this season, but his two goals Saturday were just his first tallies in 12 contests. Tkachuk's PIM contributions and steady offensive production make him worth owning in
2017-12-10 update Tkachuk potted a pair of goals in Saturday's win over Vancouver.
2017-12-09 analysis The second-year winger has the undivided attention of the NHL Department of Player Safety, having already been suspended twice this season -- once for inciting a brawl against the Red Wings, and also for spearing Maple Leafs forward Matt Martin on Wednesday. As the son of legendary center Keith Tkachuk, Matthew has huge shoes to fill, and fantasy owners have to be hoping that he doesn't keep up th
2017-12-09 update Tkachuk's one-game suspension has concluded. He'll be eligible to return against the Canucks on Saturday.

2017-12-07 analysis If Tkachuk ultimately gets suspended, it would be his second ban within a month's time, as he was the instigator in a Nov. 15 brawl against the Red Wings. It will be important to track this situation carefully with the Flames facing the Canadiens on the road Thursday night. Tkachuk made the unfortunate decision to jab the midsection of Toronto's Matt Martin while standing in the Calgary bench area. The 2016 first-round pick will miss Thursday's clash in Montreal, with either Jaromir Jagr (lower body) or Freddie Hamilton set to take his place in the lineup.
2017-12-07 update Tkachuk will be subjected to a league hearing for spearing Toronto's Matt Martin in Wednesday night's game. Tkachuk was handed a one-game suspension after a spearing incident in Wednesday's loss to Toronto, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

2017-12-06 analysis Tkachuk was on the bench when a teammate pinned Martin along the boards at the Calgary bench. Cameras caught Tkachuk spearing Martin in the side, but officials didn't see it or penalize him. He has developed a reputation for chippy play, but this is a real brain burp. The NHL will likely have something to say about it Thursday.
2017-12-06 update Tkachuk may face suspension or supplementary discipline after he speared Toronto's Matt Martin from the bench in the first period of Wednesday's game, reports Sportsnet's in-game broadcast.

2017-11-17 analysis Tkachuk started an all-out brawl between the two clubs during the contest, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that the team will miss another contest. The Flames' lines will inevitably be jostled around in his absence and the 19-year-old winger will need a replacement on the man advantage as well. Tkachuk will be eligible to rejoin the action Monday against the Capitals.

2017-11-16 analysis Tkachuk started an all-out brawl with the Red Wings when he tapped Luke Witkowski's leg with his stick in the third period of Wednesday's contest, so additional punishment in the form of a fine or suspension certainly isn't out of the question. The 19-year-old winger was suspended for two games last season for elbowing LA's Drew Doughty, which means he'll be considered a repeat offender during his
2017-11-16 update Tkachuk will have a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday regarding his actions in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Red Wings, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
2017-11-14 analysis Now up to four goals and 13 points through 17 games, Tkachuk has quickly proven last season's 48-point debut wasn't a fluke. He's a cross-category contributor with untapped scoring upside, and he's probably already a better real-world player than fantasy asset -- a true rarity among 19-year-old NHLers. It might take some time for Tkachuk to reach his offensive potential, but he's already establish
