Tanev played through multiple injuries at the tail end of the season, including broken ribs and a torn pectoral muscle, per Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun. Talk about a warrior -- Tanev suited up in all 56 games for the Flames this year, posting a modest 12 points. Also, his 21:44 of average ice time was just one second off his career high back in 2015-16. Tanev should have plenty of time to heal ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
Tanev provided an assist and went plus-3 in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Canucks. Tanev helped out on the second of Matthew Tkachuk's two goals Wednesday. The 31-year-old Tanev completed his second consecutive campaign without missing a game. The defenseman recorded 12 points, 107 blocked shots, 66 shots on net and a plus-15 rating in his first season with the Flames after signing a four-year deal last October.
Tanev provided an assist and a team-high five shots on goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canucks. Tanev helped out on Elias Lindholm's third-period tally. The 31-year-old Tanev is up to 11 points, a plus-11 rating, 103 blocked shots and 65 shots on net through 53 contests. He'll likely continue to see a top-four role if he isn't rested in any of the Flames' last three games.
Tanev collected an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers. Tanev earned the secondary helper on Johnny Gaudreau's second-period tally. The assist was Tanev's second in the last four games. The veteran defenseman has 10 points, 57 shots on net, 100 blocked shots, 30 hits and a plus-7 rating through 50 contests. He remains a solid defensive presence, but his offense isn't strong enough for most fantasy managers to consider.
Tanev produced an assist, six blocked shots and two shots on net in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens. Tanev earned the secondary assist on a Johnny Gaudreau goal in the final minute of the first period. The 31-year-old Tanev saw a game-high 28:01 of ice time after Noah Hanifin (undisclosed) exited early in the first period. More defensive responsibilities could fall to Tanev if Hanifin misses any additional time. Through 47 outings, Tanev has nine points, a plus-7 rating, 54 shots on net and 96 blocked shots.
