Flames' Chris Tanev: Played through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Chips in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Offers helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Sends assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Bags helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Flames' Chris Tanev: First multi-point game in 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev dished out two assists and blocked five shots in a 4-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday.

Tanev, who entered the night with just four points in 42 games this season, figured in on goals by Mark Giordano and Sean Monahan to help the Flames earn their fourth straight victory. Tanev, in his first season in Calgary after spending his first 10 years with the Canucks, is a valuable real-life defender but offers no fantasy appeal.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Friday's matchup with Edmonton, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Tanev will slot into his usual spot on the Flames' second pairing Friday. He's picked up six points through 37 games this season.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's clash with the Canucks.

The nature of Tanev's injury remains a mystery, but his status against Vancouver likely won't be confirmed until Calgary takes the ice for pregame warmups. The 31-year-old blueliner has picked up six points in 37 games this season.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Slides assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev notched an assist and went minus-2 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Jets.

Tanev was on the ice for both of the Jets' tallies Saturday. He also picked up the secondary assist on an Andrew Mangiapane tally in the third period. Tanev hasn't done much on offense this season, as he has only six points to go with 69 blocked shots, 42 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 36 appearances.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Ends nine-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two hits in Friday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

Tanev's first-period tally ended a nine-game point drought. The 31-year-old hasn't come anywhere near the scoring pace needed to match last year's output of 20 points in 69 games. Tanev has five points, 36 shots on net, 62 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating as a stable defensive presence in the Flames' top four.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Gets on scoresheet with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev notched an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Senators.

Tanev had the secondary helper on Milan Lucic's second-period tally. Entering Thursday, Tanev hadn't recorded a point in nine games. The 31-year-old blueliner has a goal, three assists, 43 blocked shots, 24 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 21 games as a stalwart defender in the Flames' top four.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Strikes from long range
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev scored a goal on four shots, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets.

Just seven seconds into the second period, Tanev scored from the blue line to get the Flames on the board. The trick: it was his defensive blue line, a 122-foot knuckler that fooled Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck. Fluky plays aside, it was a steady performance from Tanev. The 31-year-old defenseman has just two points in eight outings this year, but he's added a plus-6 rating and 17 blocked shots. He's fit in well on the Flames' second pairing, but his value will almost always be higher on the ice than it is on the scoresheet.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Shot-blocking maestro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev recorded eight blocked shots in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Canucks.

Familiar faces came back to haunt the Canucks -- their former goalie, Jacob Markstrom, had a 32-save shutout, and Tanev stepped in front of another eight shots, which was two more than the rest of the Flames combined. Perhaps he still has a copy of the Canucks' playbook. Either way, Saturday's performance highlights Tanev's best path to fantasy value, which is his solid work defensively. In standard formats, he probably won't score enough to be of interest, but he'll provide a big boost in the blocks category.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Garners helper in Flames debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev notched an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

Tanev, who signed with the Flames in October after 10 years with the rival Canucks, was solid Thursday. He went plus-1 and blocked a shot while skating 20:22 in the contest. Tanev is expected to begin the year alongside Noah Hanifin on the second pairing in Travis Hamonic's old role. A reliable defender, Tanev has only reached 20 points twice in his career -- his fantasy value is limited to deeper formats that count blocked shots.

Flames' Chris Tanev: Latches on with Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev signed a four-year, $18 million contract with the Flames on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

It's the second time a former Canuck has landed with the Flames on Friday, as Tanev follows goalie Jacob Markstrom to Alberta. Tanev tied his career high of 20 points and played in 69 regular-season games last year. He added 159 blocked shots, the third-highest total of his 10-year career. The 30-year-old defenseman will likely fill the void left by Travis Hamonic on the Flames' second pairing, which would put him in position to skate with either Noah Hanifin or Mark Giordano. Tanev isn't likely to make much of a fantasy impact with his new team, as he is typically a defensive-minded player.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Registers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev posted an assist, five blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Tanev was his usual reliable self defensively, and he added the secondary helper on Quinn Hughes' third-period tally. The assist ended a nine-game point drought for Tanev. He's produced a goal and six helpers with 46 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in 16 contests.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Picks up shorthanded helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev posted a shorthanded assist, five blocked shots and three shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blues in Game 2.

Tanev set up the first of Bo Horvat's two goals Friday. The playoffs have been kind to Tanev, who has a goal and five helpers during a four-game point streak. The Toronto native is seeing more ice time in the postseason -- he averaged 19:32 in the regular season but hasn't skated less than 20 minutes in any of his six outings in the playoffs.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Nabs power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev picked up a power-play helper in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 1 of their first-round series.

Tanev had the secondary helper on J.T. Miller's goal in the final minute of the third period. The 30-year-old Tanev is on a rare hot streak with a goal and four assists in his last three games. The blueliner had 20 points in 69 regular-season contests to match his career high from 2014-15. Only one of his 20 points came on the power play this season.

Canucks' Chris Tanev: Overtime hero Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanev scored the game-winning goal and added two assists in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Wild in Game 4.

Tanev helped out on equalizers from Tanner Pearson and Bo Horvat during the contest as the Canucks were either trailing or tied with the Wild for most of regulation. Then, 11 seconds into overtime, Tanev ripped a low point shot stick-side past goalie Alex Stalock to clinch the 3-1 series win. The three-point outburst gave the veteran defenseman four points in the series. He added eight blocked shots, six shots on net and a plus-2 rating.

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.
