Chris Tanev News

Defenseman

Vancouver Canucks

Tanev (face) will return to the Canucks lineup on Friday.

Tanev missed the last two games after taking a puck to the mouth in Toronto last Saturday. Tanev has missed a lot of time due to injuries this season but provides a big boost to the Canucks blueline when he’s in. However, he doesn’t boast the best offensive numbers, having scoring just two goals with four assist in 27 games this season.

Tanev (mumps) is hopeful that he will play on Tuesday.

Tanev missed Saturday’s game vs. the Sharks because of the mumps, but was on the ice for Monday’s practice and is expected to play Tuesday vs. the Red Wings. Tanev is a key member of the Canucks’ blueline, but isn’t an offensive threat—he has just six points (1G / 5A) in 36 games this season.

Tanev (lower-body) will not play on Thursday.

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.
