Tanev (upper body) returned to practice Saturday, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.

While such involvement would normally indicate his availability for the Canucks' game Sunday against the Blues, Tanev said after the workout that he would "probably not" be able to play in the contest. Assuming that holds true, Tanev's next chance to play would come Tuesday against the Sharks.
