Tanev (upper-body) will travel on the Canucks’ two-game road trip.
Tanev missed Saturday’s game in Calgary with an upper-body injury that he suffered on Friday. Tanev will travel to Nashville for Tuesday’s game and the Canucks hope he can play after using just five defensemen on Saturday.
After missing three games with a lower-body injury, Tanev returned to the lineup last night, only to get hurt again. There has been no indication whether or not Tanev re-injured himself or if he suffered a new lower-body ailment. Either way, his injury means that Nikita Tryamkin will make his season debut.
Tanev (undisclosed) will return to the Canucks lineup on Wednesday.
Tanev has missed the last three games but will return to the lineup on Wednesday in Montreal. Tanev will return to his spot next to Alex Edler on the top pairing as well as see power-play time with the second unit.
Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.
Tanev has missed the last three games with an undisclosed injury, but it looks like he will return to the lineup on Wednesday. Tanev has picked up one assist and four shots on goal while averaging 20:03 TOI in his first six games this season.
Tanev (lower-body) is not expected to play on Tuesday.
Tanev was tangled up with Anze Kopitar on Saturday and absorbed a big hit from Nick Ritchie on Sunday, so he was too banged up to participate in the morning skate and won’t play on Tuesday. With Tanev out, Troy Stretcher was recalled from Utica (AHL) and he is expected to make his NHL debut.
Tanev (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Tanev missed Sunday’s game with an undisclosed injury and will be a game-time decision tonight in Columbus. Tanev has one goal and three assists in 14 games this season. He will likely replace Alex Biega if he does play.
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.
