The Montreal Canadiens won't make Eric Tangradi a qualifying offer.

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.

Eric Tangradi feels like he'll fit in well on the Canadiens.

"The guys in this dressing room push each other to be better," he said. "I think when I'm playing fast and moving my feet, I can be an effective player and in this dressing room I'm surrounded by speed." Tangradi was a junior teammate of P.K. Subban in Belleville, so he has some familiarity in the room as well. He will be looking to cement a roster spot with Montreal when he gets the chance to play.

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.

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 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.
