The Canucks have signed Chris Tanev to a five-year, 22.25 million ($4.45M AAV) contract extension.
Tanev does not provide much in terms of offence or fantasy value, but he has been an outstanding defenseman for the Canucks this season. He was set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season, but is now locked up through the 2019-20 NHL season.
Tanev (concussion) will return to the Canucks lineup on Monday.
Tanev has been out with a concussion since February 14th, but will be back in tonight vs. Anaheim. Tanev will play in his usual spot on the top-pair with Alex Edler. The 25-year-old has registered 15 points (2G / 13A) in 53 games this season.
Tanev missed Monday’s game with an upper-body injury that is believed to be related to his hand. GM Jim Benning announced after Monday’s game that Tanev’s injury is not all that serious and he is day-to-day.
Tanev was reportedly spotted leaving the morning skate with an ice bag on his hand. With Tanev out, the Canucks will be without their top-pair because Alex Edler is also out. Alex Biega will make his NHL debut alongside Luca Sbisa in Tanev’s absence.
Tanev was not on the ice for the Canucks morning skate, so he must have suffered the injury on Tuesday vs. the Jets. The team did not specify too much information on Tanev’s status, so consider him day-to-day. He will replaced by Yannick Weber in the lineup tonight.
Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.
Tanev missed Wednesday’s practice and Thursday’s morning skate and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s meeting with the Flyers. If he can’t go, Yannick Weber will slide back into the lineup.
The Canucks are hopeful Tanev (undisclosed) will play on Saturday.
Tanev suffered an injury in Wednesday's season opener that forced him to miss practice on Thursday, but he was back on the ice Friday and could be in the lineup when they take on the Oilers. Tanev will be evaluated tomorrow and then a decision will be made.
Tanev (undisclosed) missed practice Thursday and will be reevaluated on later today.
Tanev suffered an undisclosed injury in Wednesday's season opening 4-2 win over the Flames. Head coach Willie Desjardins did not shed any light onto Tanev's situation but hopes he is back for their next game which comes on Saturday. Tanev finished Wednesday's game with two assists, two shots and a minus-1 rating in 19:45 TOI. Note that Tanev had just 11 assists in 64 games last season.
Tanev missed the last seven games with a thumb injury, but will return tonight vs. the Wild. There is no official word as to who will come out of the lineup for Tanev. The Canucks could elect to go with seven defensemen like they have many times this season. Tavev has 14 points (5G / 9A) with a plus-8 rating in 54 games this season.
Tanev is out tonight and day-to-day with an upper-body injuries.
There are reports that Tanev is more like week-to-week and will be out until after the Olympic break. Yannick Weber wil return to regular shifts on defense while Dale Weise draws back into the lineup .
