Penguins Roster Moves: Pittsburgh Recalls Eric Tangradi

The Penguins continued their busy week of roster moves, recalling left winger Eric Tangradi.

On Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins continued a busy week of roster moves, recalling Eric Tangradi from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The forward has 12 points in only 12 AHL games this season, notching five goals and seven assists in the minors. Pensburgh speculated that Tangradi will likely see action tomorrow against the red hot Dallas Stars if Tyler Kennedy is unable to go. Kennedy continues to recover from a concussion and is expected to sit out this weekend's games against the Stars and Carolina Hurricanes.

It's still unclear how the Pens plan to use Tangradi, whether it's as a fourth line forward in a limited capacity or with an opportunity to contribute on the Pens top lines. Tangradi played in 15 NHL games last season, notching three points on one goal and two assists. He did see action in one postseason game against Tampa Bay last April. With Mark Letestu traded to Columbus, and both Kennedy and Sidney Crosby out, the 22 year old left winger prospect will likely be up for at least the duration of the weekend.
