May 2022 – The breakout star of the year for the Predators, Jeannot was a fan favourite through his goal-scoring and on-ice antics. It is no secret around the NHL that he enjoys dropping the gloves, as proven by his league-leading 14 fighting majors, but Jeannot is more than just a goon. He finished the year with 24 goals in 81 games, the second-best rookie goal-scoring season in Predators franchise history. There is one cause for concern with Jeannot’s production, however. His shooting percentage to end the year was 19.4% which is seen as unsustainable on most accounts. Jeannot already started to see his regression to the mean as he finished his season on a 16-game goalless streak (regular season + playoffs). Can he keep the same production that he did this season heading into his sophomore year? It is hard to tell right now, but I think all parties will be happy if he can be a consistent 20-goal, 20 assist forward for Nashville. Curtis Rines

 

March 2022 – The big bruising power-forward has won over the hearts of the Predators faithful this season. Not only has he played at a 0.60 points per game pace, but he currently has the third-most penalty minutes in the league with 94. This is correlated with his ten fighting majors, which is tied for the league lead. Signed through 2022-23 at only $800,000 a year, Jeannot provides the Predators with one of the best value contracts in the league. Curtis Rines

 

November 2021 – Arguably the Predators biggest surprise to start the season, Tanner Jeannot has been one of Nashville’s best players thus far. The 6-2 winger is currently tied for first in team goal-scoring, alongside Filip Forsberg, with four goals through nine games. Jeannot should be looked at across all leagues, especially bangers, as he leads the Predators in hits along with his scoring touch. Curtis Rines

 

June 2021 – Jeannot took advantage of strong play once he earned his NHL call-up and never looked back. He stuck to his bread and butter of heavy board play and physicality and was a great addition to the Predator lineup. In many ways, Jeannot embodies the style of play that has been missing from the roster. Jeannot is tenaciously pursuing the puck on the forecheck and makes space for his linemates with his constant net drive. Through 15 games, he posted five goals and seven points and played a regular shift in the Predators’ first-round matchup with Carolina. Look for Jeannot to start with Nashville next season and it’s time to pick him up in your fantasy circles. Nicholas Kawka

 

March 2021 – Jeannot has a stint early on this season in the ECHL and made quick work of things scoring six points in five games. He earned his first NHL call up for a brief time in Nashville and has since settled into an AHL spot with Chicago. Jeannot has always been an excellent board player and made space for his line mates with his physical play. Jeannot has continued his hard-nosed play this season and evolved his offensive game to the next level scoring at a point per game pace. Should Jeannot continue to combine his physical style and steadily contribute to the scoresheet, he could be in line for another NHL look this season. Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2020 – In his second professional season, Jeannot continued his steady play in Milwaukee. Despite playing lower in the line up among a roster of veteran talent, Jeannot thrived within the hard-nosed style of the Admirals and evolved his game to mirror that of a power forward. He is using his large frame to engage in board play and solidify positioning in front of the net and is finishing off loose pucks with his scoring touch from his junior days in Moose Jaw. Jeannot has proven to improve year after year at any level and could eventually factor into the plans in Nashville. Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2019 – Jeannot finished his first pro season in Milwaukee with 11 points in 37GP.  The long-strided left winger plays with average pace, but excels down low around the net on rebound opportunities and tip in plays.  Jeannot does not shy away from physicality as seen by his 39 PIM this season and will engage oncoming checkers and defenders by shielding the puck and taking a hit to make a play.  He stands to play another season in Milwaukee and could be a call up option to Nashville in a bottom-six role should he continue to develop his offensive production.
