Canucks' Tanev Assists Twice In Win

News: Chris Tanev earned two assists in Friday's Game 2 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: After wrapping up a career-best 20-point season last weekend, Chris Tanev remained productive in Game 2, setting up the second and fourth Vancouver tallies of the evening. While it's possible the 25-year-old will attain some more offensive involvement in future seasons, he doesn't score quite frequently enough at this stage to attract much interest in fantasy circles.

Canucks' Tanev Bags Two Points Again

News: Chris Tanev dished out a pair of assists in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
Analysis: Chris Tanev just reached the 20-point plateau with the multi-point effort, but it's now the second consecutive contest in which he's collected a pair of assists. The 25-year-old entered the weekend with just two multi-point outings on the season -- the first of which came in the opening game of the year. Despite his impressive back-to-back performances, Tanev hasn't found the back of the net himself since Dec. 20 and likely won't get on the scoresheet with as much regularity going forward.

Canucks' Tanev Logs Two Assists

News: Chris Tanev registered a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: While it was a good offensive night for Chris Tanev, he was a mess defensively, finishing a minus-2. The 25-year-old now has a career-high 18 points in 63 games, while averaging 20:59 of ice time. He shows flashes of offensive brilliance and his plus-9 rating is solid, but with just 48 shots on goal and two power-play points, Tanev's fantasy value is mostly restricted to deeper formats.

Canucks Extend Tanev

News: Chris Tanev signed a five-year, $22.25 million contract extension with the Canucks on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The blueliner recorded an assist Sunday against the Coyotes to giving him 16 points in 60 games to date, but he earned the extension more for his work in front of the Vancouver net. By both traditional (plus-10 rating) and advanced (plus-5.44 Corsi 5-on-5; third on the team), the Canucks are a better unit when Chris Tanev is on the ice. He'll continue to see 20-plus minutes per game on the top pairing with Alex Edler.

Canucks' Tanev (Upper Body) Will Play Monday

News: Chris Tanev (upper body) will play Monday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Chris Tanev suffered a setback in his recovery process last week, but it appears he is ready to go for Monday's contest. Given that he needs to go through protocol before returning, there's no reason to believe he shouldn't be fine moving forward.

Canucks' Tanev Suffers Setback

News: Chris Tanev (concussion) appears to have suffered a setback in the recovery process, Blake Price of TSN 1040 AM reports.
Analysis: After Chris Tanev participated in practice Saturday, the Canucks were hoping to have him available for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, but those plans were dashed when the blueliner failed to get back on the ice the last two days. The extent of Tanev's setback remains uncertain at this time, but the Canucks have recalled Frank Corrado from AHL Utica in the interim to fill out their blue line.

Canucks' Tanev Practices Saturday

News: Chris Tanev (head) returned to practice Saturday, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Tanev looked to be a full participant in the session, joining Luca Sbisa as part of a regular pairing. While such involvement would normally indicate his availability for the Canucks' game Sunday against the Blues, Tanev said after the workout that he would "probably not" be able to play in the contest. Assuming that holds true, Tanev's next chance to play would come Tuesday against the Sharks.

Canucks' Tanev Resumes Skating

News: Chris Tanev (upper body) resumed skating back in Vancouver on Wednesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 AM reports.
Analysis: Chris Tanev isn't traveling with the Canucks on their road trip and won't have a shot at playing until the team returns home for a Mar. 1 tilt with the Blues. More likely, though, he'll probably need a few days beyond that date in order for him to pick up some practice time with the rest of the team.

Canucks Place Tanev On IR

News: The Canucks placed Chris Tanev (undisclosed) on injured reserve over the weekend.
Analysis: The team was in need of an extra forward for Sunday's game against the Islanders, so Chris Tanev was placed on IR to facilitate the call-up of Nicklas Jensen from AHL Utica. Tanev has been out since Feb. 14 with the injury, so he'll be eligible to return to action as soon as the Canucks feel he's fully healthy.

Canucks' Tanev Likely Out For Five-Game Road Trip

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) didn't travel with the rest of the team to New York for the beginning of the Canucks' five-game road trip, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: While it's still plausible Chris Tanev could join the team at some point in the trip, it's more likely that's he's not viewed as especially close to a return. Expect the team to provide more information regarding the nature and extent of his injury in the coming days.

Canucks' Tanev (Undisclosed) Will Not Play Monday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will be unavailable for Monday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: Chris Tanev is dealing with an undisclosed injury and will sit out Monday after seeing 22:35 of ice time in Saturday's loss to Calgary. The defenseman has a pair of assists this month but has not scored a goal since mid-December. He's officially listed as day-to-day and should be considered questionable for Thursday's contest.

Canucks' Tanev (Undisclosed) Will Play Monday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will play against the Wild on Monday.
Analysis: Chris Tanev has been off the ice for the past two games with an undisclosed injury. However, he apparently feels well enough to play Monday and will look to add onto his already accumulated two goals and 11 assists this season.

Chris Tanev

Canucks' Tanev (Undisclosed) A Game-Time Decision

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: Chris Tanev missed each of the past two games due to the undisclosed injury, but was a game-time decision for Saturday as well. The blueliner has totaled two goals and 11 assists over 49 games this season, but has been a huge factor on the defensive end, blocking 122 shots and sporting a plus-10 rating on the season.

Chris Tanev

Canucks' Tanev Will Not Play Saturday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Chris Tanev was able to take part in the Canucks' morning skate, but he will not be able to play Saturday night. Yannick Weber will suit up in Tanev's place.

Canucks' Tanev Back On Ice

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Penguins.
Analysis: After missing Thursday's game against the Sharks along with Friday's practice, Chris Tanev was able to get back on the ice Saturday morning. It's unclear how much involvement Tanev saw during the session, so his availability will likely remain a question mark up until pregame warmups. If Tanev ends up being ruled out, Yannick Weber would join the lineup in his stead.

Canucks' Tanev Out Of Lineup Thursday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) will not play Thursday against the Sharks, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Tanev wasn't present for the Canucks' morning skate, signaling that he may have suffered an injury in Tuesday's win over the Jets. He should be considered day-to-day until more information is provided on his condition. Tanev will be replaced in Thursday's lineup by Yannick Weber.

Canucks' Tanev Registers Two Assists In Win

News: Chris Tanev tallied two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Chris Tanev isn't exactly known for his scoring prowess, so it's always a bonus when he's able to generate some points. Tanev is known, however, for his willingness to sacrifice his body, as he currently has the fifth-most blocked shots in the NHL with 119. Tanev is on pace to post career-highs in both points and blocked shots this season.

Canucks' Tanev (Undisclosed) Appears Set To Play

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) is taking part in pregame warmups and looks set to play Thursday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Chris Tanev was listed as a game-time decision after missing the Canucks' morning skate, but it looks like whatever injury he's nursing isn't significant enough to keep him out of action. He'll man his usual spot on the Canucks' top defensive pairing next to Alex Edler on Thursday.

Vancouver's Tanev Iffy For Thursday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed injury) is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Flyers, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Chris Tanev snapped a seven-game streak without a point on Tuesday by notching a helper against Nashville. Overall, the blueliner has recorded 10 points in 41 games.

Chris Tanev

Canucks' Tanev Uncertain For Thursday

News: Chris Tanev missed Thursday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The injury might explain why Chris Tanev saw 17:52 of action in Tuesday's loss to the Predators -- about three minutes fewer than he typically receives. Coach Willie Desjardins is hopeful that the day off will be enough to allow Tanev to suit up Thursday against the Flyers, but his status probably won't be known for certain until the team concludes its gameday skate.

Canucks' Tanev Is Overtime Hero Saturday

News: Chris Tanev scored the overtime-winning goal on his birthday in Saturday against the Flames.
Analysis: The 25-year-old now has two goals and eight points in 32 games, to go with a plus-3 rating. While Chris Tanev has been most effective defensively this season, blocking 80 shots and logging 20:49 of ice time, the youngster is still on pace for the first 20-point season of his career.

Canucks' Tanev Stands Out In Win

News: Chris Tanev collected an assist, had a plus-3 rating, and was credited with a whopping eight blocked shots in Sunday's win over Chicago.
Analysis: Quite the night for Chris Tanev, who now has a point in two straight games and is up to six assists in 21 games on the season. While he is yet to score a goal in 2014-15, Tanev is averaging a steady 20:33 of ice time and should break the 20-point barrier for the first time in his career.

Canucks' Tanev Likely to Play

News: Chris Tanev was paired with Alexander Edler during Vancouver's morning skate on Saturday, and appears as though he will likely play in the Canucks' matchup with the Oilers on Saturday night, the Vancouver Province's Ben Kuzma reports.
Analysis: Chris Tanev was questionable to play in Saturday's game after suffering an undisclosed injury during Wednesday's tilt with the Flames, but now it appears as though the defenseman isn't in any danger of sitting out. Fantasy owners should deploy Tanev as they normally would.

Chris Tanev

Canucks' Tanev Questionable For Saturday

News: Chris Tanev (undisclosed) appears questionable to play Saturday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins wouldn't shed much light on Chris Tanev's condition, other than stating that the defenseman's status would be decided following Saturday's morning skate. Yannick Weber would fill in on the blue line if it's determined Tanev can't go.

Canucks' Tanev Nursing Injury

News: Chris Tanev sustained an injury during Wednesday's game against the Flames and will be reevaluated later Thursday.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins didn't offer much insight into Chris Tanev's injury, other than saying that he hoped the defenseman would be available for the Canucks' next game Saturday. Tanev tallied two assists in Wednesday's victory.
