April 2015- Tatar sputtered just like the Detroit offence as a whole down the stretch. Luckily, the Wings were a resilient bunch and scratched and clawed their way to many late game heroics with many clutch goals coming from number 21. Seven gamewinners to be exact. Back in February it looked like 30 goals was a certainty, but a slow stretch saw him fall just shy of that milestone with 29 tallies. Still 29 goals,27 assists and 56 points made for career highs along with 211 shots on goal playing in all 82 games in just his second full season as an NHLer. If the Wings want to upend the youthful Lightning they will need some production from the former Calder Cup MVP. Tatar is still looking for his first career playoff point. Travis Watson


February 2015- 22 goals sets a new career high for Tomas Tatar who is well on his way to surpassing the 30 goal mark for the first time in his young career. Looking deeper into the young Slovak’s numbers you can make a case he’s actually underperforming compared to career comparisons. Typcially Tatar registers the same amount or more assists than goals so for the remainder of 2015 or your projections for the 2015-16 season you could expect even more offense to come. Detroit will be hoping that their blend of youth and battle tested experience can help lead them on another championship run while the twilight years approach for stars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. Travis Watson



November 2014- Tomas Tatar is heating up and scoring timely goals to boot. he’s the NHL’s reigning 2nd Star of the Week after posting four goals and an assist, including two game winners on consecutive wins to pace Detroit’s attack. Although they fell to Toronto he found the back of the net again on a lovely find from rookie Xavier Ouellet extending his point streak to a season high five games that would eventually end in six. Tatar has tantlizing skill and it’s now beginning to turn into points for the young Slovak winger who was a little snakebitten to begin the year. Tatar is a very exciting prospect and a player for you to target in a trade while you can! Travis Watson


September 2014- Fresh off a new contract, Tatar heads into camp with big expectations. That was only heightened when he kicked off training camp and the first exhibition game playing on Pavel Datsyuk’s wing. To all Wings fans disappointment they will be unable to see it in action for at least a couple weeks as Pav exited their tilt against Pittsburgh with a shoulder injury. Confirmed to being a grade 2 separation with expected recovery two-four weeks. However, just as last year proved these young guns in Detroit are hungry to win and have stepped up time and time again when needed. Look for Tat’s to have a big year and finish around the 25-30 goal mark and close to 60 points if he’s able to stay healthy himself. Draft with confidence. Travis Watson

August 2014- Detroit has locked up another key piece to the future re-signing Tomas Tatar to a new three-year deal. The former second round pick was a restricted free agent and despite not coming to terms until a month into the NHL offseason it was never in doubt that he and the Wings would come to terms. He was too valuable of a player especially when in
