Chalk it up to terrible, terrible luck.

Vancouver Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev has been re-injured and is out for the rest of the season.

The news comes after a home game against the New Jersey Devils, which the Vancouver Canucks ultimately dropped in the shootout.

The 29-year-old blocked a shot from the Devils’ Kyle Palmieri during a penalty kill.

He disappeared into the dressing room mid-game and although he made a brief return, head coach Travis Green confirmed that his season was over.

He told reporters that it’s believed that the injury is a break.

Brendan Batchelor, play-by-play broadcaster for the Canucks and Sportsnet 650, tweeted that Tanev was seen in a walking boot and crutches after the game.

The Ontario native finishes the season with two goals and 10 assists (2-10-12) in 55 games.
