  • Canucks' Chris Tanev: Doubtful against Flyers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tanev (thumb) isn't expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's tilt versus Philadelphia, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Despite being all but ruled out Tuesday, coach Travis Green still is hoping to get Tanev back during the remaining five games of the team's East Coast trip. The defenseman -- who has missed the Canucks' previous five contests -- was bogged down in a 12-game goal drought prior to getting hurt. For now, Vancouver has called up Philip Holm, but expect the 25-year-old to head back to AHL Utica once Tanev or Troy Stecher (knee) is given the green light.

  • Canucks' Chris Tanev: Out 2-3 weeks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tanev (thumb) will be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks, Iain MacIntyre of reports. The 27-year-old blueliner won't require surgery on his injured thumb, a prognosis that significantly reduces his expected recovery timeline. Tanev has enjoyed a strong start to the campaign, notching five points (two goals, three assists) while posting a plus-9 rating in 15 games, so the Canucks will undoubtedly be more vulnerable on defense during his absence. He'll be placed on injured reserve until he's given the green light to return to the lineup.

  • Tanev (upper body) is out for the next three games after returning to Vancouver amidst the team's three-game, California road trip. It's unclear when the 27-year-old blueliner suffered the injury, as he was able to play 23:19 in Tuesday's contest in Calgary. With five points in 15 games, Tanev's producing at a career-best rate and also owns an impressive plus-9 rating. Expect the Canucks to give an update on Tanev's condition when they conclude their road trip and Alex Edler to enter the lineup in Tanev's absence.

  • Tanev is leading all Canucks with a plus-6 rating through the first eight games of the season. Tanev has been producing steadily for Vancouver, racking up two goals and four points. He doesn't play on the power play, but Tanev sees heavy minutes on the top defensive pairing and can be a decent fantasy play in deeper formats. Tanev may be more regarded for his defensive abilities, but that doesn't mean he isn't capable of jumping into the rush and creating offense. With the way he's operating right now, Tanev could smash the career-high 20 points he set in 2014-15.

  • Canucks' Chris Tanev: Pots second goal of the season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tanev scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's loss to Winnipeg. It's only three games into the NHL season and Tanev has already scored as many goals as he did in his 2016-17 campaign. The 27-year-old is in the prime of career and logging heavy minutes on Vancouver's top defensive pairing, so there's no reason he can't keep producing offense. The goal scoring will obviously slow down, but he makes for a decent play in deeper formats.
