Flames Give Injury Update On Star Defenseman

Today the Calgary Flames gave the first update on star defenseman Chris Tanev since he suffered an injury. According to the team, he will be day to day going forward.

@MFradiology Injury Update: #Flames defenceman Chris Tanev (upper body) is day-to-day.

Defenceman Nick DeSimone has been recalled from the @AHLWranglers while forward Matt Coronato has been assigned to the Wranglers.

With Tanev out this will throw a major wrench into trade plans for some competing teams in need of a defenseman.

Will Tanev's Injury Impact His Value?

Over the last couple of weeks, Chris Tanev has been a very popular name on the trade market.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been the team most linked with Tanev. Rumors had indicated the teams were discussing a trade centered around Tanev. Now those talks will need to be put on hold.

Depending on how long Tanev is out other teams in need of a defenseman could look elsewhere for a solution. This could mean the Flames and Tanev could miss out on their window to part ways.
