Eric Tangradi demoted to the AHL

Top prospect Eric Tangradi will return to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL now that forward Arron Asham is ready to return to the lineup.  Asham’s services will be more than needed on the bottom lines considering the Pittsburgh Penguins will play his former team, the Philadelphia Flyers tomorrow.

Over his nine games this season the rookie had a goal and an assist playing mostly on the fourth line.

We could see Tangradi again this season should the Pens get hit with injuries, however it appears that Mark Letestu has passed him on the depth chart for the time being.
