Top Christopher Tanev News

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Mixed results in loss

    Tanev registered two assists and two blocked shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks.

    Tanev's multi-point effort was a bright spot, but both assists came after he put the puck in his own net for the Sharks' third goal. He has five helpers and 44 blocks over his last 13 appearances. The 34-year-old is at 12 points, 40 shots on net, 153 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating through 51 outings overall, putting him one point shy of matching his total from 2022-23.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Picks up helper in win

    Tanev logged an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Tanev put on a bit of a show of what he can do for potential trade suitors. The helper was his third point in the last 10 games, and he also took a couple of knocks that briefly sent him to the locker room but couldn't keep him off the ice. The 34-year-old is up to 11 points, a plus-11 rating, 146 blocked shots and 38 shots on net through 49 outings overall. Tanev's value is higher on the ice than in fantasy, but he'll command a top-four role with virtually any team in the league due to his defensive prowess.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Records assist Tuesday

    Tanev notched an assist and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.

    Tanev has just two helpers over 11 outings in January, but he's added 37 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating. The 34-year-old defenseman continues to carry more value on the ice than in fantasy due to his strong defense and work ethic. He's produced nine points, 128 blocks, 34 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 44 appearances this season.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Solid at both ends of ice

    Tanev registered an assist and blocked nine shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Tanev snapped a 14-game point drought with the helper. The 34-year-old also posted his second-highest total of blocks in a game this season, trailing only the 10 blocks he recorded Dec. 18 versus the Panthers. He's up to eight points and 118 blocks through 39 appearances this season, ranking third in the league in the latter category behind only Jacob Trouba (124) and Mario Ferraro (121).

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Career night in his own way

    Tanev blocked 10 shots and went plus-3 in Monday's 3-1 win over the Panthers.

    The 10 blocks were a career high for Tanev, who is established as one of the top shot-blockers in the NHL. More impressively, he did that in his first game back after missing three with an upper-body injury. The 33-year-old has seven points, 75 blocks, 26 shots on net and a plus-4 rating over 29 appearances this season. In his career, he's racked up 1,520 blocked shots over 746 contests, ranking 34th in league history since the stat was tracked beginning in 2005-06.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Good to go

    Tanev (upper body) will be back in the lineup Monday versus the Panthers, according to Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun.

    Tanev is slated to return to the second pairing following a three-game absence. He has registered one goal, six assists, 26 shots on net and 65 blocked shots in 28 outings this campaign. Tanev is projected to replace Jordan Oesterle in Monday's contest.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Won't play Saturday

    Tanev (upper body) won't play Saturday against Tampa Bay, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Tanev will miss his third straight contest, but he might be available to return Monday against Florida. He has picked up one goal, six assists, 26 shots on net and 65 blocked shots across 28 outings this campaign. Nick DeSimone has been playing during Tanev's absence.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Returns to Calgary

    Tanev (upper body) has traveled back to Calgary to be evaluated and won't be in the lineup versus Minnesota on Thursday, Eric Francis of Sportsnet reports.

    Tanev will be out of action for a second straight contest due to his upper-body issue -- he should probably be considered doubtful to face Tampa Bay on Saturday. Prior to getting hurt, the 33-year-old defender was stuck in a four-game pointless streak.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Day-to-day with upper-body injury

    Tanev (upper body), who won't play Tuesday versus Vegas, is considered day-to-day.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Ruled out Tuesday

    Tanev (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup versus Vegas on Tuesday, Eric Francis of Sportsnet reports.

    The Flames haven't provided a clear update on Tanev's status other than to rule him out for Tuesday's contest. Jordan Oesterle figures to step into the lineup for Calgary for the first time since Dec. 5 against Minnesota. Through 28 games this season, Tanev has produced one goal and seven assists and should be capable of reaching the 20-point threshold as long as he isn't sidelined long-term.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Injured early Monday

    Tanev (undisclosed) left Monday's game versus the Avalanche in the first period, and the Flames had no update on his status after the contest, Julian McKenzie of The Athletic reports.

    A Ross Colton hit took Tanev out in the opening minute of the contest. With the Flames playing in Vegas on Tuesday, there may not be clarity on Tanev's situation until warmups. Jordan Oesterle would likely check into the lineup if Tanev can't play, while Dennis Gilbert could move onto the second pairing.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Hands out helper

    Tanev posted an assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Tanev has a goal and four assists over his last seven contests, and he's gone plus-6 with 16 blocks in that span. The 33-year-old defenseman won't keep his scoring numbers up in the long run, but his 59 blocks on the year have him in a tie for 11th in the league. He's added seven points, 23 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 24 games.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Nets goal in win

    Tanev scored a goal on two shots and blocked four shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars.

    Tanev didn't miss a game after blocking a shot with his face Monday versus the Golden Knights. He quickly alleviated any concerns about his health with a goal 8:02 into Thursday's game, tying the score at 1-1. Tanev has six points, 56 blocks, 23 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 23 contests as one of the steadiest defenders on the Flames' roster.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Good to play Thursday

    Tanev (face) is expected to play Thursday against Dallas, according to Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Tanev left Monday's 2-1 overtime win over Vegas after taking a shot to the face, but it seems he won't miss a full game due to the incident. He has five assists, nine hits and 52 blocks in 22 contests this season. Tanev is projected to play on the second pairing alongside Noah Hanifin.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Hurt in Monday's game

    Tanev took a shot to the face and couldn't finish Monday's game versus the Golden Knights, Darren Haynes of The Canadian Press reports.

    Tanev was bloodied after getting in the way of a William Karlsson shot in the third period. There was no concrete update on Tanev's status after the contest, so it's questionable if he'll play Thursday versus the Stars. If he can't go, the Flames will likely need to call up a defenseman -- perhaps Nick DeSimone -- from AHL Calgary.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Solid in comeback win

    Tanev notched an assist, two hits and a plus-4 rating in Friday's 7-4 win over the Stars.

    Tanev has a helper in each of the last three games, adding six blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in that span. The 33-year-old defenseman rarely sustains offense over long stretches. He's up to five assists, 20 shots on net, 49 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 20 contests overall.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Plucks apple in loss

    Tanev notched an assist and blocked three shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Predators.

The 33-year-old blueliner has added 19 shots on net, 48 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating. He continues to be a defensive stalwart on the Flames' second pairing, though that role doesn't offer him much fantasy interest.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Offers helper

    Tanev notched an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken.

    All three of Tanev's assists this season have come over his last nine games. The defenseman snapped a five-game point drought with the secondary helper on an Andrew Mangiapane tally in the third period. A lack of offense is nothing new for the defensive-minded Tanev, who has added 45 blocked shots, 19 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 18 appearances.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Provides assist Tuesday

    Tanev notched an assist and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.

    Tanev helped out on a Noah Hanifin tally in the third period, which tied the game at 2-2. Those two blueliners have been paired together in recent games as head coach Ryan Huska looks to stabilize the Flames' defense. While Tanev has two assists over his last three games, his role is to shut down the opposition more than produce offense. He's added 28 blocked shots, 14 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 12 outings this season.

  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Snags helper in loss

    Tanev posted an assist and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Stars.

    Tanev set up Connor Zary's first NHL goal early in the first period. The helper was Tanev's first point in 10 outings this season, though it's not surprising for the 33-year-old shutdown defender to go long stretches with little offense. He's added 14 shots on net, 24 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating while filling a top-four role this season.
