Christopher Tanev is out week to week for the Vancouver Canucks with a lower-body injury.

The defenseman was injured during a 5-4 shootout win against the New York Islanders on Tuesday. He had 20 points (two goals, 18 assists) in 69 games for Vancouver this season.

The Canucks recalled defenseman Jalen Chatfield from Utica of the American Hockey League. He has four assists in 48 AHL games this season and has yet to play in an NHL game.

Vancouver (36-27-6) is tied with the Nashville Predators for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference, two points behind the Winnipeg Jets.

The Canucks play at the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday (10 p.m. ET; FS-A, FS-A PLUS, SNP, NHL.TV).
