Now that Chris Tanev has been traded to the Dallas Stars and we gave out our grading of the trade, we shift focus to the top five moments that Tanev had in his time with the C of Red.

The Shot Block Warrior

Chris Tanev was never afraid to put his body on the line to make his goaltender's life easier. Over his parts of four seasons, Tanev played in 259 games in the Red and Yellow blocking 566 shots. Blocking at a rate of 2.2 blocks per game, Tanev is currently second in league blocks this season sacrificing his body 171 times so far this season. But nothing was bigger than this, earlier this season when the Flames were in a 1-1 tie with the Vegas Golden Knights, Tanev made a huge block with his face to keep it a tie game in the middle of the third period. Tanev would be out for the rest of the game, but his sacrifice wasn't for nothing as the Flames took the victory 2-1 in Overtime.
