The Penguins have recalled Eric Tangradi from Wilkes-Barre (AHL). He will play tonight against the New York Islanders.
The Pens re-assigned him two days ago, before the Pittsburgh/Los Angeles game.
With no WB/S games scheduled in that time frame, Tangradi hasn't played a game since the Columbus loss at CONSOL last Tuesday.
Tangradi has only been given limited NHL fourth-line minutes as of late, but he needs to display the physicality and grit that helped him get to this level.
He's very capable, so don't be surprised if he plays a more feisty brand of hockey this evening on Long Island.
