Eric Tangradi (knee) will start the season on injured reserve.
Tyler Bertuzzi (wrist) and Evgeny Svechnikov (neck) were also placed on IR by the Red Wings. It's possible they could all spend time in the minors once they are healthy because they missed most of training camp. Mon, Oct 2, 2017 03:18:00 PM

Eric Tangradi is looking for another shot at playing in the NHL.

Tangradi has one year left on his current contract with the Red Wings, but he's only played one game with them over the last two seasons. "I definitely feel like I have something to offer," Tangradi said. "I’ve been able to score at the AHL level. Whether that can translate to the NHL level ... I believe it can. I just need to get an opportunity. I’m trying to go into camp with a positive mindset and do what I do well and let the rest take care of itself." The 28-year-old had 17 goals and 44 points in 54 games with AHL Grand Rapids last season. He's a solid AHLer, but don't expect him to become a regular with the Red Wings in 2017-18.

Eric Tangradi picked up two assists in Grand Rapids' 3-2 win against the Syracuse Crunch in Game 4 of the Calder Cup Final.

Tangradi is up to 17 helpers, which is the most in a single playoff in franchise history. He is a former second-round pick of the Ducks, but was just never able to put it all together at the NHL level. The Grand Rapids Griffins have a 3-1 series lead with Game 5 scheduled to take place tomorrow. Tangradi has 19 points in 17 AHL postseason contests.

Tangradi has yet to suit up for Detroit this season, and has just 143 career NHL games since being drafted 42nd overall in 2007. So we would not expect much fantasy value from the veteran tweener.

The Canadiens acquired Tangradi from the Jets for backup goalie Peter Budaj. The 26-year-old played in seven games with the Habs but he didn't post a single point during that stint. Tangradi has an intriguing combination of size and skill but he just hasn't been able to put it together at the NHL level.
