“We believe Chris has yet to hit his prime, but has already proven that he can be a key member on our penalty kill and the defensive side of the puck,” General Manager Doug Wilson said Thursday in a release announcing the signing.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Tierney was selected by San Jose in the second round, No. 55 overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.
