Angelidis was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Monday. Angelidis scored once on his only shot on net in his first call up this season. The 30-year-old has not provided the same level of production with Syracuse that he did last season, registering just eight points in 22 games.
Angelidis scored his first NHL goal in almost four years in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Senators. It stood as the winner. It came on a goalmouth scramble that led to a coach's challenge, but it was upheld. Angelidis has played in two games this season and just 12 in his career. His only other goal came in Jan. 2012. Nice night.
Angelidis was recalled by the Lightning on Thursday. Angelidis has yet to draw into a game for Tampa Bay this season. The 30-year-old forward is likely being called up to provide depth in the wake of the Lightning's multitude of forward injuries. It is difficult to say when or if Angelidis will actually see the ice.
Angelidis was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday. For the second time in two weeks, Angelidis has been called up to Tampa Bay then sent back down to Syracuse without seeing the ice. The Lightning are still hurting for forward depth, but it doesn't seem like they think the 30-year-old will be the answer anytime soon.
Angelidis was recalled by the Lightning on Saturday. With Tyler Johnson (undisclosed), Cedric Paquette (undisclosed), and Jonathan Drouin (undisclosed) all nursing injuries, Tampa Bay is in desperate need of depth at forward. The 30-year-old Angelidis will provide the Lightning with additional depth up front, and could immediately slot into Tampa Bay's lineup Saturday against the Islanders as a bottom-six forward. The 30-year-old winger has tallied four points (one goal, three assists) in 15 games with AHL Syracuse this season.
