The Montreal Canadiens acquired Eric Tangradi from the Winnipeg Jets for goaltender Peter Budaj and forward Patrick Holland.
The Jets sent Tangradi to the minors on Saturday. He will probably be sent to the Canadiens' AHL affiliate in Hamilton. This trade was made because of the logjam of goaltenders on Montreal's roster. The Habs will now move forward with Carey Price as their starter and Dustin Tokarski as their backup. Tangradi had six points in 55 games last season. Oct 5 - 12:57 PM

The Winnipeg Jets assigned middling winger Eric Tangradi to the AHL after he cleared waivers on Saturday.

While the 25-year-old has 136 games of NHL experience (including 55 games with Winnipeg in 2013-14), he hasn't really been able to put it together. Perhaps he'll find his place as a decent depth forward with moderate PIM potential at some point, but the 42nd pick of the 2007 NHL Draft seems to be in a tough spot right now.

Eric Tangradi has been placed on waivers by the Winnipeg Jets.

Eric Tangradi suffered a lower-body injury during Monday's exhibition loss to Edmonton.

Sep 30 - 9:43 AM

Eric Tangradi skated alongside Olli Jokinen and Blake Wheeler in Wednesday's overtime win over Colorado.

He received the promotion because of Dustin Byfuglien's injury and took advantage of the situation by scoring his second goal of the season. "It was definitely a big exhale, that's for sure," Tangradi said. "There's been a lot of ups-and-downs for me this season. I tried to stay positive through them all and when you get an opportunity like (Wednesday), you try to take advantage of it." He has five points in 44 games this campaign.
Mar 21 - 7:28 AM

Eric Tangradi has been scratch for seven of Winnipeg's last 11 games.

This is just an FYI as Tangradi shouldn't be on your fantasy radar. He has one goal and two assists in 28 games this campaign, while averaging just 9:19 of ice time per contest.

Eric Tangradi is excited to play in Saturday's preseason contest in Belleville Saturday night because he played in the OHL with the Bulls for three seasons.

"The pre-game skate was an opportunity to take it all back in," he said before switching his focus back to trying to earn his roster spot. "But there's a lot of guys on this team that are trying to fight for a job and there's a couple spots up for grabs. When we leave the rink now there's a lot of guys who are really dialed in and focused on just playing a good game and, of course, we're here to try and win." Saturday's Kraft Hockeyville contest will see the Jets "host" the Washington Capitals.

Eric Tangradi has agreed to a two-year/$1.35 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Tangradi's deal is one-way, so he should make the Jets' opening game roster. He had a goal and four points in 41 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Winnipeg Jets last season. He'll earn $650k next season and $700k in 2014-15.

Eric Tangradi met a games-played condition following his trade to Winnipeg, so the Pittsburgh Penguins will get a sixth-round choice instead of a seventh-round pick.

He skated in 36 games with the Jets after he was acquired from the Penguins. Tangradi recorded a goal and three assists over that span. Pittsburgh now owns the No. 164 overall pick in the 2013 draft.

Eric Tangradi's goal may have bought himself a little more time on the Jets' roster.

He had played in all 16 games since being acquired from the Penguins, but he had no points to show for it. He scored in the first period on Thursday, in 4:48. "That felt great. I’ve been trying to contribute and I think I have with my size, but scoring is something I have to do as well," said Tangradi. "Hopefully this will give me more opportunity and I can build on this."

Eric Tangradi admits it's weird to make his Winnipeg Jets debut against his old team, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tangradi was traded to Winnipeg on Wednesday. "It's kind of like seeing your ex-girlfriend at the bar the next night," Tangradi joked. "It's a little bit different feeling. But I've got a mindset: No friends tonight. I've got new teammates on my side. I'm just going to try to play my game and be physical." If anything, getting to play against his former teammates so soon after being traded should provide Tangradi with extra motivation.

Winnipeg brought in Eric Tangradi and dealt out Alexei Ponikarovsky in two separate moves Wednesday.

"(Tangradi) is 24 years old and we're very hopeful that he's someone that, given an opportunity to play in our organization, is going to blossom," said GM Kevin Cheveldayoff. "It was really more about creating an opening and opportunity for Eric as opposed to anything with Alexei." Tangradi will probably slot into the club's third line, where he'll try to gain some traction at the NHL level following an unproductive stint in Pittsburgh.
