Vancouver Canucks re-sign defencemen Chris Tanev and Andrew Alberts

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed defenceman Chris Tanev.

The 23-year-old Toronto native recorded seven points (two goals, five assists) and added 10 penalty minutes in 38 games with Vancouver last season.

He originally signed with the Canucks as a free agent May 31, 2010.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
