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.

The six-foot-two, 185-pound blue-liner has 10 points and 12 penalty minutes in 92 career games, all with Vancouver.

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

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
