Pens Send Eric Tangradi And Andrew Hutchinson Back To Wilkes-Barre

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they have demoted forward Eric Tangradi and defenseman Andrew Hutchinson back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL today.

↵

Tangradi, 21, played in all nine games this season, scoring one goal and one assist. His ice time had been drastically cut over the past three games, down to under 10 minutes a night, so sending him back to the minors should provide significant time for him to work on his game.

↵

Hutchinson, 30, filled in for five games with Pittsburgh due to injuries to Brooks Orpik (who has returned) and Zbynek Michalek (who is practicing with the team and close to returning).

↵

Forward Arron Asham, who has missed the entire season so far with a shoulder injury, is expected to make his debut with the Penguins in their next game on Wednesday.
