June 2013 - Tatar was named MVP of the AHL Calder Cup playoffs after the Griffins won the championship. He had 16 goals and 21 points in 24 games. He is half a season away from an NHL job - at most. - Dobber
March 2013 – As expected, Tatar is trading places with Gustav Nyqvist for recalls with the Red Wings when needed and both have helped provide punch when inserted in the lineup. Tatar is flirting much closer to a point-per-game pace in the AHL than he has in the past and should be a shoe in for a regular NHL role next year and could provide very solid secondary scoring for a Wings team who’s core is not getting any younger or he could be good trade bait for the Red Wings to acquire a solid defenseman at the trade deadline.

December 2012 – Tatar has put on a few pounds and is Grand Rapids lone threat from the left side. His puck movement is very strong and he is on pace for a second season of over 200 shots. Likely to remain in the AHL for the rest of the season in the event the lockout ends, but would be a reliable call up when required. Jason Banks
June, 2012 – A dynamic player who has been on the fantasy radar seemingly forever, Tatar led the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL) in scoring (tied) as a 21-year-old. Although he could add some size and strength, he is (or will be) a good enough player to get by on skill alone at the next level. In the 2012 Men’s World Championship he posted five points in 10 games for Slovakia, good for sixth on the squad.
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Currently on the very fringe of an NHL roster spot. He is showing an ability to contribute well at the top level and making an impact despite his size.
Tatar is named MVP of the Calder Cup playoffs:
