  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Needs surgery, out for season

    Tanev (knee) will undergo ACL surgery and miss the remainder of the season.

    The 29-year-old suffered the season-ending injury Dec. 18 against Edmonton. Tanev finishes his brief 2021 campaign with nine goals and six assists in 30 games.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Lands on injured reserve

    Tanev (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Tanev left Saturday's game versus the Oilers with the injury, and he needed help off the ice. He'll be sidelined for at least the first game back from the holiday break Monday versus the Canucks, though the Kraken have yet to provide a timeline for Tanev's return.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Departs with lower-body injury

    Tanev left Saturday's game versus the Oilers late in the third period with a lower-body injury, and head coach Dave Hakstol didn't have an update on his status after the game, Marisa Ingemi of The Seattle Times reports.

    Tanev collided awkwardly with William Lagesson, and the former needed help back to the Kraken's bench. The play happened with less than five minutes in the game, which explains why any update on Tanev's status will have to wait until Sunday at the earliest. The Kraken's next scheduled game is Tuesday versus the Coyotes, and Max McCormick would be the likely option to enter the lineup if Tanev can't play.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Bulges twine against Sharks

    Tanev scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over San Jose.

    Tanev has nine goals on the year and just needs five more to match his personal best set with Winnipeg back in 2018-19. The Toronto native should be capable of reaching the 30-point threshold this year, which would be a career first, and could also push for the 20-goal mark. As such, Tanvi figures to offer solid top-half fantasy value throughout the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Puts up assist Saturday

    Tanev notched an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Tanev helped out on a Morgan Geekie goal in the third period. The assist ended a four-game point drought for Tanev. The 29-year-old winger has eight goals, six assists, 47 shots on net, 92 hits and a plus-4 rating through 27 contests. His physicality could still help in deeper formats, but he's slowed down on offense as the season has progressed.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Erupts for three points

    Tanev scored a shorthanded goal on two shots, dished two assists, went plus-4 and added four hits in Monday's 7-4 win over the Sabres.

    Tanev battled with a Sabres defender all the way down the ice before scoring on a second effort at 14:40 of the first period. He also had assists on goals by Jared McCann and Mason Appleton in the contest. Tanev had gone three games without a point and hadn't produced a multi-point effort since he scored twice versus the Canadiens on Oct. 26. For the season, the winger has eight goals, five helpers, 39 shots on net, 75 hits and a plus-4 rating in 22 contests.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Helps out on empty-netter

    Tanev registered an assist, two shots on goal, a pair of hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.

    Tanev set up Yanni Gourde for the empty-netter in the final minute of the game. The 29-year-old Tanev has four stretches in which he's gotten on the scoresheet in consecutive games, but he wasn't able to turn any of the first three into a true streak. The winger is up to seven goals, three assists, 36 shots, 66 hits and an even plus-minus rating through 18 contests.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Snaps goal drought

    Tanev scored a goal and added four hits in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Tanev had recorded just two assists in his last eight games, but he tallied on a power-play in the third period of Friday's lopsided loss. The 29-year-old has seven goals, two assists, 34 shots on net, 64 hits and 13 PIM through 17 contests overall. He should continue to see middle-six work, although his recent dry spell suggests regression has taken hold after the winger started the year extremely and surprisingly well.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Earns 100th career point

    Tanev provided an assist, four hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Tanev's helper on Yanni Gourde's second-period goal was the former's 100th NHL point. Often deployed on a checking line throughout his career, Tanev has seized a larger role in the Kraken's offense. He has six goals, two assists, 31 shots on net, 13 PIM and 47 hits through 13 contests.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Finds first assist

    Tanev registered an assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Tanev setup Yanni Gourde's goal in the first period. The 29-year-old Tanev has been a surprise so far with six goals, but this was his first assist in 12 contests. The winger has added 30 shots on net, 43 hits and a plus-1 rating while playing in a middle-six role.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Fills empty cage

    Tanev scored an empty-net goal on five shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Wild.

    Tanev provided insurance late in the third period to up his team-leading goal total to six. The winger has seven goals in 32 outings last year, and his career high is 14 tallies in 80 contests with the Jets in 2018-19. The 29-year-old has added 18 shots, 29 hits, nine PIM and a plus-4 rating in a third-line role for the Kraken, though his 33.3 shooting percentage is bound to drop throughout the year.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Strikes twice in win

    Tanev scored twice on three shots, doled out six hits and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens.

    Tanev leads the Kraken with five goals in seven contests, fueled by a pair of two-goal games. The power winger has yet to record an assist, but he's picked up 13 shots on net, 27 hits and nine PIM. The scoring rate will decrease over time, but the 29-year-old remains a constant source of gritty play.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Pots third goal of year

    Tanev tallied a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus.

    The 29-year-old broke a scoreless deadlock at 14:32 of the third period, jumping on a loose puck in the offensive zone before going forehand-to-backhand on Columbus netminder Elvis Merzlikins. It was Tanev's team-leading third goal of the season on just seven shots.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Scores pair in win

    Tanev scored twice, doled out four hits and added four PIM in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Predators.

    The power winger gave the Kraken their first lead in franchise history with a power-play goal in the first period. He added an empty-netter in the third, which stood as the game-winner after the Predators pulled a goal back. Tanev figures to be a mainstay on the third line and penalty kill, but a stronger showing on offense could see him earn some power-play time as well. Fantasy managers will likely be more interested in his hit totals -- he hasn't posted fewer than 128 in a season since becoming an NHL regular.

  • Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Headed to the Pacific Northwest

    Tanev was grabbed by the Kraken from the Penguins in Wednesday's Expansion Draft, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Tanev was left exposed in favor of veteran Jeff Carter, a decision that no doubt was impacted by the potential absence of Evgeni Malkin (knee) to start the upcoming season. While the 29-year-old Tanev's role with his new club will be to provide depth, his speed and tenacity could see him challenge for a top-six spot, and he figures to be a mainstay on the penalty kill. Regardless of where he lands on the depth chart, the Toronto native should be capable of pushing for the 25-30 point threshold.

  • Penguins' Brandon Tanev: Puts away game-winner

    Tanev scored a goal on three shots and piled up a team-leading eight hits Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Islanders in Game 3.

    The 29-year-old swatted home a loose puck in front to break a 4-4 tie with 3:36 left in the third period. It was the first goal of the series for Tanev, and his first playoff tally since 2018-19 with Winnipeg.

  • Penguins' Brandon Tanev: Removed from LTIR

    Tanev (upper body) has been removed from injured reserve, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Tanev hasn't played since April 3 but will be available for Sunday's Game 1 against the Islanders, though he may require a few practices to get back up to speed before being reinserted into the lineup. The 29-year-old winger racked up seven goals and nine assists in 32 games this season.

  • Penguins' Brandon Tanev: Officially ruled out Saturday

    Tanev (upper body) practiced in full with the Penguins on Friday but won't be available for Saturday's regular-season finale versus Buffalo.

    Tanev has been sidelined for the Penguins' last 17 outings due to his upper-body issue but he's trending in the right direction for a postseason return. With the late-season emergence of Frederick Gaudreau (five points in his last five games), Tanev figures to reunite with Zach Aston-Reese and Teddy Blueger on the fourth line once he's given the green light to return.

  • Penguins' Brandon Tanev: Cleared to resume contact

    Tanev (upper body) has been cleared to begin taking contact but won't be ready to play against the Flyers on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

    Tanev appears to be trending in the right direction, but with a back-to-back on the schedule, he may be hard-pressed to slot into the lineup versus Philadelphia on Tuesday. Once cleared to play, Tanev will likely rejoin Teddy Blueger and Zach Aston-Reese on the fourth line but could also push for a spot with Jeff Carter on the third line.
