April 2013 - Matt Tennyson has been recalled by the San Jose Sharks. This could signify a trade brewing with the big league club or they just like what they see. Tennyson has been arguably the best defenseman in Worcester. This is well-deserved call up for him. He does have fantasy value but only if he sticks in the lineup long term. Tim Graveline


December 2012 - Tennyson is having a solid rookie season in the AHL with the Worcester Sharks. He is providing solid help on the powerplay. He still needs to refine his play in his defensive zone as he is a minus 7. However, as a rookie his is the second highest scoring defenseman for the baby Sharks. As of December 17th, he now has 2 goals and 11 assists in 26 games.Tim Graveline


July 2012 – Tennyson is a defenseman with good size and a quality shot. His defense improved under the tutelage of Andy Murray at Western Michigan, so much so that he was signed following his junior season by the Sharks. Tennyson lit the lamp 11 times last year, and nine the year before, so he knows how to put the puck in the net. If he can hone his defensive game, he’ll put up some points with playing time. San Jose has a crowd at defense at the moment, so Tennyson will have to wait for his chance. Rich Dillon


Fantasy Outlook:  C


Will need a couple of AHL seasons before he’s ready, but has ability to produce when he arrives.




Tennyson scores on a double on-timer:
