Jets Trade Tangradi To Canadiens

News: Eric Tangradi was traded to the Canadiens on Sunday, Dave Stubbs of The Gazette reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi was placed on waivers by the Jets on Friday, but will instead report to AHL Hamilton. He tallied three goals and six total points in 55 games with the Jets last season, but doesn't appear to be in line to make the Candiens roster.

Jets' Tangradi Placed On Waivers

News: Eric Tangradi (lower body) was placed on waivers Friday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The lower-body injury Eric Tangradi sustained in Monday's preseason game might have motivated the Jets' decision, as he was squarely on the roster bubble heading into that game. It looks like he'll lose out to T.J. Galiardi and possibly Anthony Peluso for the Jets' extra forward spots.

Jets' Tangradi Injures Lower Body

News: Eric Tangradi left Monday's exhibition game with a lower body injury and wasn't able to return.
Analysis: The severity of Eric Tangradi's injury has yet to be released, although the Jets are likely being overly cautious since their season opener on Oct. 9 is just around the corner. Hailing from Philadelphia, the 25-year-old will likely be slotted in the Jets' fourth line during their 2014-15 campaign.

Jets' Tangradi Notches Rare Goal

News: Eric Tangradi scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi saw just 8:27 of ice time in the victory, but with Dustin Byfuglien out of the lineup, he was able to play with higher-quality linemates in his limited action. Working alongside leading scorer Blake Wheeler and Olli Jokinen, Tangradi was able to slip the puck past opposing goalie Reto Berra in the first period for his first tally since November.

Jets' Tangradi To Play Friday

News: Eric Tangradi will be in the lineup when the Jets take on the Vancouver Canucks on Friday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi has just four points in 36 games this year to go with a minus-7 rating. Friday will be his first game under new coach Paul Maurice. Scoring one point every eight or nine games is not enough to make Tangradi a fantasy option.

Jets' Tangradi Dealing With Flu

News: Eric Tangradi missed Monday's morning skate with a case of the flu, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Look for the Jets to err on the side of caution and keep Eric Tangradi out Monday, with a return to the lineup Thursday a possibility. Tangradi has either been a fourth-line player or healthy scratch on most occasions this season, so his potential absence from Monday's game shouldn't raise much concern in the fantasy realm.

Jets' Tangradi Notches Assist In Opener

News: Eric Tangradi (general soreness) assisted on the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Oilers.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi missed some time in the preseason due to injury, but showed no ill effects during his six minutes of ice time in the opener, sending a fancy back-handed pass to Michael Frolik for the decisive goal. The big play isn't something that Tangradi is expected to provide on a nightly basis, as he totaled just four points in 36 games last season while averaging over 10 minutes of ice time.

Jets' Tangradi Out For Thursday

News: Eric Tangradi will sit out Thursday's preseason game due to general soreness, Sarah Orlesky of TSN reports.
Analysis: The winger's status for the Jets' first regular season is still unknown, but this doesn't sound like an injury that should keep him out for any games that count. That being said, with just a goal and three assists in 36 games last season, he's not a viable fantasy guy whether he's healthy or not.

Eric Tangradi

Jets Bring Back Tangradi

News: Eric Tangradi agreed to a contract with Winnipeg on Tuesday.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi could be on the AHL-NHL fringe this year despite playing 36 NHL games in the previous season. He posted just four points in those 36 games, which gives Tangradi just nine points in 81 career NHL appearances.

Jets' Tangradi Nets First With New Team

News: Eric Tangradi scored his first goal as a member of the Jets in Thursday's 2-1 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi's goal was his first point of the season. Although he had some promise as a prospect coming up through the Ducks' system, subsequent trades to the Penguins and now the Jets haven't translated into any consistent production. As such, Tangradi can't be considered a fantasy-worthy option until he delivers some more offensive production.

Jets Acquire Tangradi

News: The Penguins have traded Eric Tangradi to the Jets for a 2013 seventh-round draft pick, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi has managed just five points in 45 career games with the Penguins, but perhaps a change of scenery/role will lead to a boost in production in Winnipeg for the 2007 second rounder.

2/8/2013

Eric Tangradi, LW, WPG Pens Continue To Scratch Tangradi

Eric Tangradi

Pens Continue To Scratch Tangradi

News: Eric Tangradi, who has served as a healthy scratch in five straight games, has six hits and zero points in five games.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi proves that not everyone can score on a line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. Tangradi played a bit better as part of Pittsburgh's fourth line prior to being scratched, but it's safe to say there are likely more productive fantasy options available in most leagues.

Pens' Tangradi Scratched Tuesday

News: Eric Tangradi served as a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Islanders.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi has played a little bit better in his last two starts, but remains pointless in five games. He's out of options, otherwise Pittsburgh would've likely sent him back to Wilkes-Barre by now.

Pens' Tangradi Playing A Bit Better

News: Eric Tangradi skated just over eight minutes (8:18) in Pittsburgh's shootout victory Sunday, finishing plus-1 against the Senators.
Analysis: He was on the ice with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal when the Pens netted their lone goal of the game. Eric Tangradi looked pretty good Friday on the fourth line and it's possible that he shuttles between lines going forward.

Pens Demote Tangradi Thursday

News: Eric Tangradi practiced on the Pens' fourth line during Thursday's practice, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: With zero points and decreased ice time, Eric Tangradi's stock is at a season low. It's unknown when and if he'll get another shot with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. He has one NHL goal in 43 games. Tyler Kennedy took his spot next to Malkin on Thursday and will likely get a shot there Friday in Winnipeg.

Pens' Tangradi Gets Timed Out Wednesday

News: Eric Tangradi totaled less than five minutes (4:27) of action in Wednesday's game against Toronto.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi's ineffective play at both ends of the rink could tighten his leash and push him back to Wilkes-Barre in a hurry. GM Ray Shero has stated he wants to see what the big forward can do in an extended run, but his patience has to be wavering.

Pens' Tangradi Pointless After Two Games

News: Eric Tangradi, who has yet to point in either of Pittsburgh's first two games, saw under 10 minutes (9:32) of action Sunday.
Analysis: Pens coach Dan Bylsma recently said that the only way to find out about Eric Tangradi is to give him a run of games, but his patience has to be wearing thin. The fact that Pittsburgh is winning takes some of the heat off Tangradi, but he could find himself benched rather quickly if he doesn't begin producing.

Pens' Tangradi Makes Team

News: Eric Tangradi has made the Penguins' 23-man roster heading into the regular season.
Analysis: Pittsburgh kept Eric Tangradi over Beau Bennett, but the power forward will likely be on a short leash. Dustin Jeffrey has also played well in the week-long training camp and could see time with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal.

Pens' Tangradi Misses Out On Golden Opportunity Wednesday

News: Eric Tangradi failed to take advantage of his opportunity to skate on Evgeni Malkin's line Wednesday, missing out on several scoring opportunities close to the net.
Analysis: The fact that he got those chances bodes well for him, but power forwards unable to finish don't stick around in the NHL for too long. Eric Tangradi all too often looks a step slow in the Penguins' system.

Eric Tangradi

Pens' Tangradi Gets First Crack With Malkin And Neal

News: Eric Tangradi will get the first audition on Evgeni Malkin's line, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi has a short history of playing well alongside Malkin, as he did so a couple preseasons ago. If he's able to succeed, his fantasy value soars. As of now, he's still the player who's scored one goal in 40 NHL games. He must show he has the speed to keep up in the league.

Pens Make Call To Tangradi And Friends Saturday

News: The Penguins have invited Eric Tangradi - along with Simon Despres, Beau Bennett and Jayson Megna - from AHL Wilkes-Barre to compete in training camp, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi scored 10 goals and 18 points in 34 games for the Baby Penguins, but slumped badly over the last month. Still, he has a shot at making the team and if that happens, he could become fantasy relevant. The power forward has one goal in 40 NHL contests spread across three seasons.

Pens' Tangradi Putting The Biscuit In The Basket

News: Eric Tangradi has five goals in seven games for AHL Wilkes-Barre.
Analysis: He's put up big Baby Penguins numbers before, only to flop at the NHL level. That said, he's a possible top-six forward option if and when the lockout ends.

Pens Ink Tangrani To One-Year, Two-Way Deal

News: Eric Tangradi agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Penguins, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi appeared in 24 regular season games with the Penguins in 2011-12 but had his strongest showings in the team's first-round playoff series against the Flyers. Tangradi's deal is worth $726,000.

Tangradi Sent Down

News: Eric Tangradi has been sent down to AHL affiliates Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Penguins Official Website reports.
Analysis: Following the Penguins' first-round playoff exit against the Flyers, Eric Tangradi has been sent down to play in the remainder of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton playoff series against the Hershey Bears. Tangradi recorded two points in 24 games for the Penguins this past season.

Pens' Tangradi To Play Saturday

News: Eric Tangradi is expected to get a rare start Saturday in New Jersey, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Eric Tangradi, who has played only two times in March, has one assist in 18 games. He's already shown an ability to succeed at the AHL level, but securing an NHL slot has proven to be another matter thus far. Poolies should hope Tangradi gets moved to another system that doesn't rely upon speed, as does Pittsburgh's.
