Chris Tanev has been quarantined after presenting symptoms of the mumps virus.

Well, that's bad news. The mumps can be easily taken care of if caught in time but otherwise can linger and is contagious. Only Troy Stecher has been confirmed with a diagnosis, thus far. But Nikita Tryamkin, Mike Chaput and Markus Granlund have also presented symptoms. Consider Tanev day-to-day, for now.
Feb 24 - 4:35 PM

Chris Tanev's first goal of 2016-17 was a big one: the overtime game-winner as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 in overtime on Saturday.

That's just his sixth point in 35 games this season. Tanev is a fantastic defenseman in "reality," but it remains to be seen if he can be a consistent contributor in the box score numbers that matter most in fantasy. It hasn't happened this season.

Chris Tanev (lower body) will be a game-time decision Wednesday.

He has sat out the last three games because of a lower-body injury and coach Willie Desjardins is hoping to have him back against Montreal. The Canucks sent defensemen Troy Stecher and Tom Nilsson to the minors earlier, so Tanev appears to be likely to play.
