Canucks' Chris Tanev: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (lower body) has been given the green light to resume playing, according to general manager Jim Benning.

Prior to the league going on hiatus, Tanev managed to reach the 20-point mark this season for the first time since 2014-15. The Toronto native figures to remain in a bottom-six role heading into the 2020-21 campaign.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Dealing with week-to-week injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev's lower-body injury is considered week-to-week.

Tanev suffered an injury in Tuesday's contest against the Islanders and is now expected to miss at least a week. The 30-year-old blueliner has two goals and tied his career high with 20 points so far this season. Prior to the injury, Tanev had appeared in all 69 of Vancouver's contests.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Sustains injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (undisclosed) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Islanders.

Tanev skated 16:16 with a hit, a blocked shot and a shot on goal before he exited Tuesday's contest. If the 30-year-old isn't ready to go for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, expect Jordie Benn to enter the lineup, while Troy Stecher would be in line for a larger role.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Drops the gloves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev was involved in his first NHL fight during Thursday's loss to Ottawa.

It wasn't an easy game for Tanev, who also took a puck up high that drew blood. Tanev hasn't recorded a point in 10 straight contests since going on a four-game point streak. The fight however gave him five PIM, getting his name on the scoresheet in another manner.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Becoming assist machine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev provided an assist and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Tanev has five helpers over his last four games. The 30-year-old defenseman has 19 points, 120 blocks and 30 PIM in 53 games this year. Unfortunately, he has just 34 shots on goal -- Tanev isn't doing much to create his own offense, so this recent surge is likely to fizzle out in the near future.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Dishes helper Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev picked up an assist, three blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Tanev contributed in a number of ways in Wednesday's win. The defenseman is up to 17 points, 115 blocks and a plus-6 rating in 51 appearances this season. The 30-year-old is one pace to easily beat his career-high 20 points from 2014-15, achieved in 70 contests that year.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Sets up pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev delivered two assists in Monday's 3-1 win over the Blues.

Tanev set up J.T. Miller in the second period and added the secondary helper on Bo Horvat's last-second empty-net goal in the third. The two-helper outing double Tanev's January production to four assists in 10 games. He's at 16 points, 112 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 50 games, which puts him on pace for the most productive season of his career.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Earns assist in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev registered an assist in Sunday's win against the Wild.

He picked up the helper on Bo Horvat's empty-net goal. Tanev has points in back-to-back appearances, bringing him up to 14 points on the campaign. That sees him eclipse last year's total of 12 points, and it's the highest total he's produced since the 2015-16 season (18 points). His main contribution are his 102 blocks, so anyone depending on Tanev should be pleasantly surprised by the offense he's brought to the table.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev posted an assist and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Tanev is on a three-game point streak and has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six outings. He's got 12 points in 38 games this year, matching his output from 55 appearances in 2018-19. Tanev's never had more than 20 points in a single season, but the defensive specialist appears poised to challenge that mark this year. He's added 88 blocked shots and 12 PIM.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Continues to simmer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev recorded a power-play assist and four blocked shots in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Tanev has a goal and three assists in his last five games. The helper was his first power-play point since 2015-16 -- the defenseman is virtually never used in that situation at this point in his career. Tanev now has 11 points, 87 blocks and 27 shots on goal through 37 contests. Fantasy owners in deeper formats may want to take a look at the 30-year-old while he's running hot, although he may hold more appeal in DFS.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Unlikely hero in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

Tanev converted his second goal of the year 1:30 into overtime to secure the win in a back-and-forth game. The defenseman had three shots on goal and three blocked shots in the contest. Tanev has 10 points, 83 blocks and 26 shots through 36 games this season.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Pockets helper Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev had an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.

Tanev dished to Adam Gaudette, who set up Jake Virtanen for the Canucks' first goal of the game. Tanev has played a mostly defensive role on the Canucks' second pairing, with just eight points and 77 blocked shots through 33 contests. He's not likely to be of interest to most fantasy owners.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Dishes pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev had two helpers, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

Both of Tanev's assists came in the first period, on goals by Tanner Pearson and Zack MacEwen. The 29-year-old defenseman has seven points and 73 blocked shots through 29 games this season. He's earned three assists in his last four outings, but he's never earned more than 20 points in season -- a scoring binge doesn't seem all that likely.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Snaps point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev picked up an assist in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to the Penguins.

Tanev ended a 17-game point drought by picking up an assist on his team's third goal of the night. Prior to the drought, the defensive blueliner had four points in a six-game span. However, if you have him on your roster, chances are you're relying on his blocks. He blocked three shots during the contest, and is up to 68 on the campaign -- good for third in the NHL.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Puts body on line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (upper body) blocked four shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Jets.

Tanev briefly had to leave the game after ending up on the receiving end of a Patrik Laine shot in the second period. However, he was able to finish the contest just one day after exiting early against the Blackhawks due to injury. Tanev has four points and 49 blocks in 17 games this year. His usage is mostly defensive in nature, which allows Quinn Hughes to range forward on offense.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (upper body) will be in the lineup for Friday's game against Winnipeg, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Tanev was initially deemed unlikely to play against the Jets, but he's evidently made a quick turnaround ahead of puck drop. The veteran blueliner will slot into his usual spot skating on the Canucks' second pairing alongside Quinn Hughes.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Unlikely to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (upper body) isn't expected to play in Friday's tilt with Winnipeg, Iain MacIntyre of reports.

Tanev left Thursday's game early with an upper-body injury. He was able to work on the ice Friday morning, but doesn't appear to be healthy enough to play against the Jets. This opens the door for Oscar Fantenberg to make his debut as a Canuck.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev suffered an upper-body and won't return to Thursday's game against Chicago.

It's unclear how Tanev suffered the injury, but he left late in the first period with the injury and failed to return. The Canucks will roll with five defensemen for the time being, with Quinn Hughes likely to see a bump in ice time. The team heads to Winnipeg for a clash Friday, so expect a word regarding Tanev's health following the game or before Friday's clash.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev registered an assist in Sunday's victory in New York.

Tanev set up Jay Beagle for a short handed marker, which ended up being the game winner. He's had a strong start to the season, posting four points in eight games. Don't expect that level of production to last, but it's certainly looking like he'll eclipse the 12 points he totaled in 2018-19.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Hits 100 career points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev registered a pair of assists in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flyers.
