Tangradi Call Up in Near Future?


With injuries starting to take their toll on the Penguins a little earlier this year, Tangradi could be making his season debut shortly. A look at how Big Dog has faired in WB/S after the jump.

It's no secret that the play of Tangradi in recent seasons has caused some Pens fans to throw in the towel when it comes to the player deemed to be the next power forward of the organization. He didn't look very impressive before his 2010-11 season was cut short due to a concussion, finding the back of the net only one time in 15 games. His chances of making the opening night roster this year seemed bleak with the addition of new faces and sure enough, he was assigned to WB/S. Tony Androck has done a great job of keeping us up to date on happenings of the farm club at Highland Park Hockey and it appears Big Dog my be receiving a call from Ray Shero soon. Tangradi hasn't exactly taken the AHL by storm this season as many had hoped, but he has netted three goals and tallied seven points in as many games. He impressed in front of GMRS during the team's recent 3-0 blanking of Springfield, recording a goal and showing toughness by dropping the gloves. Not to be over looked, but sophomore forward Bryan Lerg has tickled the twine six times and added four assists in seven games. Should Tyler Kennedy's concussion keep him on the shelf much longer, I think we'll be seeing Tangradi in a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey sooner than later. Thoughts on his potential call up or have you lost hope in the 22 year old?
