Right now Tanev is the Canucks top blueliner although not in fantasy hockey. Tanev is not expected to play Monday when the Canucks take on the Kings in Los Angeles. Tanev has four goals and 16 points with a minus-one rating in 60 games this season. Consider him day-to-day.

Chris Tanev picked up the 12th goal of his career during Friday's 2-1 shootout win over Anaheim.

That's not all, Tanev had a game-high of five blocks. Or the same sum as Anaheim. Tanev may never quite be an offensive juggernaut, but that kind of production can go a long way in many leagues.
Jan 2 - 12:54 AM

Chris Tanev (lower body) is expected to return on Friday.

Tanev is one of those defensemen that's more valuable to his team than he is to fantasy owners in standard leagues. He has just five points in 35 games, but the Canucks lean on him heavily when he's available. Tanev was out for two contests.
Jan 1 - 3:12 PM
