Top Christopher Tanev News

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Assist streak at three games

    Tanev notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

    Tanev had a shot attempt tipped in by Joe Pavelski in the second period, and that goal stood as the game-winner. This is the third straight game with an assist for Tanev, who has remained steady as ever on defense since he was traded from the Flames to the Stars. The blueliner has five points and a plus-7 rating over 16 contests with Dallas, and he's up to 19 points, 52 shots on net, 201 blocked shots and a plus-23 rating through 72 outings this season.

    Tanev notched an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Avalanche.

The 34-year-old defenseman is up to 18 points, 52 shots on net, 199 blocks, 39 hits and a plus-21 rating over 71 appearances between the Stars and the Flames this season.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Should be good to go

    Tanev (upper body) practiced fully Tuesday and is expected to be available for Wednesday's matchup with Edmonton, Lia Assimakopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Tanev was evaluated for an injury after exiting Saturday's win over Seattle early, but it appears whatever forced him from that contest wasn't overly serious. The 34-year-old vet has picked up two points through 12 games since joining the Stars in a trade with the Flames.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Being evaluated for injury

    Tanev (upper body) wasn't able to complete Saturday's 3-0 win over Seattle, Darren Brown of NHL.com reports.

    Adam Larsson was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for elbowing Tanev early in the third period. The 34-year-old Tanev played four shifts following the hit before being forced to leave the game for good. He will be evaluated Sunday to determine his status. Dallas is off until Wednesday against Edmonton, so Tanev has some time to recover.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Posts helper in win

    Tanev notched an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Tanev has picked up two points over seven outings with the Stars since he was traded from the Flames in late February. The defenseman continues to hold a top-four role and could see heavier usage as long as Jani Hakanpaa (lower body) is out. Tanev has 16 points, a plus-19 rating, 179 blocked shots and 48 shots on net through 63 appearances this season.

Tanev has already matched his goal total from 56 contests with the Flames to begin the year. He's up to 15 points, 44 shots on net, 174 blocked shots and a plus-19 rating over 58 appearances. Tanev is likely to fill a defense-focused top-four role in Dallas.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Ready for Dallas debut

    Tanev is expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Sharks.

    Tanev has apparently gotten his immigration paperwork settled and will be eligible to play Tuesday. Expect the defenseman to see a heavy workload defensively with no power-play time. The 34-year-old had 14 points and 171 blocked shots over 56 contests before the Flames traded him to the Stars last Wednesday.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Game-time decision Tuesday

    Tanev (not injury related) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Sharks, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Tanev hasn't made his Dallas debut yet due to a work visa issue but could meet up with the team to play in Tuesday's contest. He recorded 14 points and 171 blocked shots in 56 games with Calgary before being traded to the Stars on Wednesday.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Questionable for Saturday

    Tanev is working through his visa issues, raising doubts regarding his availability versus San Jose on Saturday, Stars radio analyst Bruce LeVine reports.

    According to general manager Jim Nill, Tanev should be available and ready to play against the Sharks on Tuesday at the latest, though the situation remains fluid. During his time in Calgary this season, the veteran blueliner generated one goal on 43 shots and 13 assists while averaging 19:50 of ice time through 56 contests. Once available to play, Tanev figures to bump either Joel Hanley or Jani Hakanpaa from the lineup.

  • Stars' Chris Tanev: Heading to Lone Star State

    Tanev was traded from the Flames to the Stars via the Devils on Wednesday in exchange for a 2024 second-round pick, a conditional 2026 third-round pick and Artyom Grushnikov, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    The Flames will retain 50 percent of Tanev's remaining salary and the Devils will retain 25 percent more to help the Stars fit him in after the three-team trade. Tanev's role will not change much from switching teams -- he's a top-four defenseman who's sound in his own zone. Tanev is second in the NHL with 171 blocked shots, but he also has just 14 points through 56 outings, so his fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats. Per Lia Assimakopoulos of The Dallas Morning News, Tanev won't play Thursday versus the Jets, but he could be available by Saturday's game versus the Sharks.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Two helpers Tuesday

    Tanev recorded a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Tanev set up Blake Coleman's tally in the second period before grabbing a second assist on Mikael Backlund's empty-netter in the third. It's just the second multi-point game of the season for Tanev, who'd gone scoreless in four games since he recorded a pair of helpers Feb. 15 against San Jose. While Tanev won't contribute much offensively, he's been a solid defensive presence on Calgary's top pairing. He's up to 14 points (one goal, 13 assists) with 171 blocked shots and a plus-16 rating through 56 games this year.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Mixed results in loss

    Tanev registered two assists and two blocked shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks.

    Tanev's multi-point effort was a bright spot, but both assists came after he put the puck in his own net for the Sharks' third goal. He has five helpers and 44 blocks over his last 13 appearances. The 34-year-old is at 12 points, 40 shots on net, 153 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating through 51 outings overall, putting him one point shy of matching his total from 2022-23.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Picks up helper in win

    Tanev logged an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Tanev put on a bit of a show of what he can do for potential trade suitors. The helper was his third point in the last 10 games, and he also took a couple of knocks that briefly sent him to the locker room but couldn't keep him off the ice. The 34-year-old is up to 11 points, a plus-11 rating, 146 blocked shots and 38 shots on net through 49 outings overall. Tanev's value is higher on the ice than in fantasy, but he'll command a top-four role with virtually any team in the league due to his defensive prowess.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Records assist Tuesday

    Tanev notched an assist and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.

    Tanev has just two helpers over 11 outings in January, but he's added 37 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating. The 34-year-old defenseman continues to carry more value on the ice than in fantasy due to his strong defense and work ethic. He's produced nine points, 128 blocks, 34 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 44 appearances this season.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Solid at both ends of ice

    Tanev registered an assist and blocked nine shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Tanev snapped a 14-game point drought with the helper. The 34-year-old also posted his second-highest total of blocks in a game this season, trailing only the 10 blocks he recorded Dec. 18 versus the Panthers. He's up to eight points and 118 blocks through 39 appearances this season, ranking third in the league in the latter category behind only Jacob Trouba (124) and Mario Ferraro (121).

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Career night in his own way

    Tanev blocked 10 shots and went plus-3 in Monday's 3-1 win over the Panthers.

    The 10 blocks were a career high for Tanev, who is established as one of the top shot-blockers in the NHL. More impressively, he did that in his first game back after missing three with an upper-body injury. The 33-year-old has seven points, 75 blocks, 26 shots on net and a plus-4 rating over 29 appearances this season. In his career, he's racked up 1,520 blocked shots over 746 contests, ranking 34th in league history since the stat was tracked beginning in 2005-06.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Good to go

    Tanev (upper body) will be back in the lineup Monday versus the Panthers, according to Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun.

    Tanev is slated to return to the second pairing following a three-game absence. He has registered one goal, six assists, 26 shots on net and 65 blocked shots in 28 outings this campaign. Tanev is projected to replace Jordan Oesterle in Monday's contest.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Won't play Saturday

    Tanev (upper body) won't play Saturday against Tampa Bay, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Tanev will miss his third straight contest, but he might be available to return Monday against Florida. He has picked up one goal, six assists, 26 shots on net and 65 blocked shots across 28 outings this campaign. Nick DeSimone has been playing during Tanev's absence.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Returns to Calgary

    Tanev (upper body) has traveled back to Calgary to be evaluated and won't be in the lineup versus Minnesota on Thursday, Eric Francis of Sportsnet reports.

    Tanev will be out of action for a second straight contest due to his upper-body issue -- he should probably be considered doubtful to face Tampa Bay on Saturday. Prior to getting hurt, the 33-year-old defender was stuck in a four-game pointless streak.
