Tanev will be in a walking boot for another 10 days and hopes to be fully healthy by May. Tanev has struggled with injuries in his career, having never appeared in more than 70 games in a season. He finished 2018-19 with 12 points in 55 contests, his highest point total since 2015-16. He was asked to go to the World Championship, but given his injury, chances are he won't participate. He'll need the summer to make a full recovery and turn his attention toward training camp.
Tanev (ankle) isn't expected to be cleared medically until a few days prior to the beginning of the 2019 IIHF World Championship, which means he won't be available for Saturday's season finale against St. Louis, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports. Tanev will finish the campaign having totaled just two goals and 12 points in 55 games. The 29-year-old Canadian is still unsure if he'll represent his country in the IIHF World Championship, but he'll be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp either way.
Tanev (ankle) will remain out of the lineup versus Nashville on Thursday, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports. Tanev has played just twice in the Canucks' last 22 games due to injuries, and at this point, should probably be considered doubtful at best versus St. Louis on Saturday. The blueliner reached the 10-point mark for the sixth consecutive season, but is unlikely to get back to being the 20-point producer he was in 2014-15.
Tanev (ankle) is projected to remain sidelined for Saturday's contest against the Stars, Kevin Woodley of NHL.com reports. Tanev has drawn into just two games since Feb. 13 and there is no sign that his status will change anytime soon. With only three games remaining on the schedule, there's a decent chance he's played his last game of the campaign. If that's the case, he finishes with just 12 points -- two goals and 10 assists -- to go along with 122 blocked shots and 29 hits over 55 games.
Tanev (ankle) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's matchup with LA, NHL.com's Kevin Woodley reports. Tanev is still recovering from the fractured ankle he suffered March 15 against the Devils, and with just five games remaining on the schedule, the Canucks may opt to simply shut him down for the remainder of the campaign. If that ends up being the case, the 29-year-old blueliner will finish the campaign having notched two goals and 12 points while posting a plus-3 rating in 55 appearances.
