Tangradi has 1 goal in 40 career NHL games so he isn't really an ideal fantasy player. He's been able to find the net in the AHL, so maybe playing with Malkin and Neal will spark some goal scoring from Tangradi.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-assigned forward Eric Tangradi to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Tangradi found his way into two games, taking a shot on goal and handing out two hits. He did not get a big chance to succeed while playing on the fourth line but knew his time in Pittsburgh would be limited.
