Tanner Jeannot is coming of a 2021-2022 season that many thought he deserved the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year. He has not lived up to the hype that surrounded him last season through the first half of this season.
Jeannot burst onto the scene in 2021-22 for the Nashville Predators with 24 goals and 17 assists in 81 games. It’s been a far cry from that through his 42 games this season. Just three goals and six assists. His point-per-game average has decreased considerably.
Jeannot has also accumulated 55 penalty minutes. Known for his physicality and not being afraid to back down from a fight, Jeannot has seven fighting majors. With the seven fights that leaves him with 20 minutes of minor penalties.
On the good side of things, Jeannot is a +2 in the +/- column. Given his ability to get in hard on the forecheck and be relentless on the puck it is very possible that he turns his season around during the last half. But, based off how the first half of the season went, he deserves to be on the “Not Hot List”.
