      Canucks' Chris Tanev: Game-time decision Tuesday

      Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports. Tanev missed Sunday's game against New Jersey with an undisclosed injury, and is reportedly in danger of missing a second straight contest Tuesday against Columbus with the same issue. The 25-year-old blueliner's status should be confirmed prior to puck drop Tuesday night.

      Canucks' Chris Tanev: Won't play Sunday

      Tanev will miss Sunday's game against the Devils with an undisclosed issue, and is considered day-to-day. The team didn't release the issue behind Tanev's absence, but it will cause him to miss Sunday's contest at a minimum. The newly-recalled Alex Biega will draw into the lineup in his place, making Tanev's next chance to return Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.

      Canucks' Chris Tanev: Scores first goal of season on the power play

      Tanev scored his first goal of the season on the power play in Saturday's loss to Detroit. It was a busy night for Tanev, who also fired three shots on goal in a whopping 27:18 of ice time. Tanev's had a slow start to the season offensively, recording just two points in eight games, but he's been solid for Vancouver, sporting a plus-3 rating and logging heavy minutes. He's never surpassed 20 points in his career and is more valuable to Vancouver than to fantasy owners, but he can still produce some offense from the back end. Just don't expect too much.

      Vancouver Canucks' Chris Tanev Records plus-4 rating in season opener

      Tanev picked up an assist and finished with a game-high plus-4 rating in Wednesday's season-opening win over the Flames. An outstanding start to the season for Tanev, who also blocked three shots in 22:56 of ice time. The 25-year-old has become arguably Vancouver's most reliable defenseman and should log heavy minutes this season on the top defensive pairing. While he isn't a huge offensive contributor, Tanev isn't afraid to jump into the rush and should build off the career-high 20 points he recorded in 2014-15.

    • 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.
