Tangradi signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Red Wings on Monday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Tangradi would have been a free agent at the end of this season, but the new deal locks him up for another couple seasons. The winger has drawn into just one game for the Red Wings this season, seeing 6:55 of ice time, and remains largely off the fantasy radar.
Tangradi will rejoin AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday. Tangradi has appeared in just one game for the Red Wings this season, seeing less than seven minutes of ice time. The 26-year-old has performed well in the minors, registering 31 points in 36 contests.
Tangradi was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday. Tangradi continued a strong run of scoring since his last brief appearance in the majors, now at 31 points in 36 games and leading the Griffins in scoring. The 26-year-old didn't register any ice time during his last stint with the Red Wings, but his AHL stats at least indicate there is something capable of scoring in there.
Tangradi has been returned to AHL Grand Rapids, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Tangradi simply served as depth for the Red Wings over the last couple contests, but he didn't draw into the lineup. He'll now rejoin the team's AHL affiliate and await another opportunity to rejoin the parent club.
Tangradi was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Monday. Tangradi's first recall as a member of the Red Wings organization likely comes in wake of Dylan Larkin being expected to miss his second consecutive game Monday against Minnesota. Tangradi is a big-bodied wing who has produced consistently at the AHL level, but has never scored more than three goals in an NHL season.
