Analysis: He racked up 33 points (10 G, 22 A) during 60 games with San Antonio (AHL) last season and he'll likely provide depth on the wing at times with the Coyotes this season.

Coyotes' Tikhonov: Assigned to San Antonio (AHL)

News: Tikhonov has been assigned to the minors from training camp, the Coyotes' official site reports.
Analysis: According to the team's site, only 25 players are left in training camp. As for Tikhonov, a first-round draft pick from 2008, he will look to make a good impression with the San Antonio Rampage.

Tikhonov loaned to KHL

News: The Coyotes have loaned RW prospect Viktor Tikhonov to Russia's KHL.
Analysis: Tikhonov has yet to live up to expectations, but he has plenty of time yet. Continue to stash him away in keeper leagues.

Coyotes option Tikhonov to minors

News: The Coyotes have sent forward Viktor Tikhonov to San Antonio of the AHL. Tikhonov had no points and a minus-1 rating in three preseason games.
Analysis: This is really no surprise since Tikhonov struggled as a rookie in 2008-09. A lot of folks called it a reach when Phoenix drafted Tikhonov late in the first round of the 2008 draft and he didn't let down the naysayers. Tikhonov is pretty much a long-term Fantasy keeper until he hits his stretch run in the NHL.

Defenseman helps Tikhonov score

News: Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Saturday's game against the Canucks. Phoenix upped its lead to 4-0 on a goal credited to Tikhonov at 10:30 of the second. As Tikhonov was called for a hooking penalty, he touched the puck inside the Vancouver line, but did not maintain control. When Vancouver defenseman Shane O'Brien attempted to poke check, the puck -- last touched by Tikhonov -- slide into a vacated Vancouver net. "That's definitely a first for me," said Tikhonov. "I was actually wondering, 'did that count?' I didn't know to celebrate or not."
Analysis: Tikhonov had his first goal in nine games Saturday via the assist from O'Brien. Tikhonov had his best run in late February when he scored four goals in a four-game period from Feb. 14-21, but then cooled off as soon as March began. The 2008 first-round pick hasn't had a stellar rookie season and has been a healthy scratch at times. He appears to be more of a long-term Fantasy keeper.

Tikhonov records sixth goal

News: Coyotes rookie LW Viktor Tikhonov scored his sixth goal of the season Thursday in a shootout win over the Thrashers.
Analysis: Tikhonov, a 2008 first-round pick, is still learning the NHL game and is best left for long-term Fantasy keeper leagues until further notice.

Tikhonov claims two goals, assist

News: Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Flames.

Tikhonov recalled from AHL

News: The Coyotes recalled LW Viktor Tikhonov from San Antonio of the AHL Monday. The team also sent David Schlemko to San Antonio.
Analysis: Tikhonov (hand) came off injured reserve Feb. 4 when he was assigned to the minors. He had two goals and one assist in four games with the Rampage and appears recovered from the hand injury he suffered in January. The 2008 first-round pick is still learning the NHL game and is best kept in long-term Fantasy keeper leagues until further notice.

Tikhonov close to returning

News: The Arizona Republic reports that Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov (hand) is close to returning to action. "My shooting, passing, that's not a problem," he said. "But as far as collisions go, it's something you've got to consult with the doctors."
Analysis: Tikhonov was a late first-round pick in June, but when Phoenix traded up for him he was still considered a project. It seems Tikhonov would have been better off in the minors or back in junior hockey, but he has stayed with the Coyotes as a lower-line forward. He has been lauded for his solid play on the penalty kill, but still has marginal Fantasy appeal when healthy.

News: Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov is listed week-to-week with a hand injury suffered during Phoenix's 3-2 victory Thursday night over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Tikhonov was a late first-round pick in June, but when Phoenix traded up for him he was still considered a project. It seems Tikhonov would have been better off in the minors or back in junior hockey, but he has stayed with the Coyotes as a lower-line forward.

Analysis: Tikhonov was a late first-round pick in June, but when Phoenix traded up for him he was still considered a project. It seems Tikhonov would have been better off in the minors or back in junior hockey, but he has stayed with the Coyotes as a lower-line forward. He has been lauded for his solid play on the penalty kill, but still has marginal Fantasy appeal especially when injured.

Tikhonov ends seven-game drought

News: Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov scored a goal during Friday's 5-4 win against the Islanders. Tikhonov opened the scoring when he gained control of the puck in the right faceoff circle, skated to the front of the net and backhanded a shot between Rick DiPietro's pads just 1:46 into the game. It was his first point in eight games and first goal since Nov. 26.
Analysis: Tikhonov was a late first-round pick in June, but when Phoenix traded up for him he was still considered a project. It seems Tikhonov would have been better off in the minors or back in junior hockey, but he has stayed with the Coyotes as a lower-line forward.

Analysis: Tikhonov was a late first-round pick in June, but when Phoenix traded up for him he was still considered a project. It seems Tikhonov would have been better off in the minors or back in junior hockey, but he has stayed with the Coyotes as a lower-line forward. He is still best kept in long-term Fantasy leagues.

Tikhonov scores first NHL goal

News: Coyotes LW Viktor Tikhonov scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Tikhonov was a first-round pick in this year's draft, but he hasn't got off to a great start in 2008. He has decent long-term keeper value, but until he starts to put up points more often, he has no use in seasonal leagues.

Tikhonov scoreless in return

News: Phoenix LW Viktor Tikhonov (shoulder) returned to action Saturday night against Calgary. Tikhonov played 14:14 and did not record any points.
Analysis: Tikhonov doesn't have a point in his first seven NHL games. Perhaps the Coyotes would have been best to let Tikhonov go back to junior hockey or to the minors to develop his game. Those are still options, but Tikhonov remains more of a long-term Fantasy keeper at this time.

Tikhonov injured during collision

News: Coyotes RW Viktor Tikhonov left Wednesday's game against the Capitals after a center-ice collision with Washington D Mike Green midway through the first period. He sustained a shoulder stinger and didn't return. He didn't record a point in 2:21 of ice time and finished at even. He took one shot on net.
Analysis: Tikhonov doesn't have a point in his first six NHL games and now he adds injury to insult. Perhaps the Coyotes would have been best to let Tikhonov go back to junior hockey or to the minors to develop his game. Those are still options, but Tikhonov remains more of a long-term Fantasy keeper at this time.

Tikhonov off to slow start

News: Coyotes rookie LW Viktor Tikhonov has no points and a minus-3 rating through five games this season.
Analysis: Tikhonov was drafted 28th overall by the Coyotes in this year's draft, and made the team along with three other rookies (Kyle Turris, Mikkel Boedker and Kevin Porter). The Russian is an intriguing keeper option who should get plenty of ice time to show off his stuff in Phoenix. Don't start him in seasonal formats, however.
