A two-way defenceman at the top of his class in intellect, composure, and decision-making. Elite-level hockey IQ pairs seamlessly with smooth skating and quick puck movement. Defensively assertive and diligent; keeps the opposition to the outside and along the boards, and doesn't give much to work with up the middle. Finds key lanes and takes them away proactively. Good first pass and can provide support offensively. Chris Tanev is the total package defenceman that can offer positives in all three zones due to his calm disposition and superb poise. [EP]

Brothers: Brandon Tanev, Kyle Tanev
