Alex Tanguay: Joins AHL Iowa bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay will become an assistant coach with AHL Iowa, which closes the door on his professional career.

Tanguay actually hasn't played in the NHL since 2015-16. Over the course of his 16-year career, the winger played for Calgary, Montreal, Tampa and Arizona, but will be best known for the nine seasons he spent with the Avalanche. In just his second year in the league, the Quebec native lifted Lord Stanley's cup, racking up 21 points in 23 postseason contests that year. In all, Tanguay saw action in 1088 games in which he tallied 283 goals and 580 assists.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay tallied a pair of assists in Monday's loss to the Blues.

Tanguay helped Arizona race out to a 2-0 lead in the opening frame, but St. Louis took control from there and registered the game's final five goals. The winger has taken a liking to playing with his new mates, registering 13 points in 15 contests since being traded before the deadline.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Picks up assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay assisted on an Oliver Ekman-Larsson goal during Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Capitals.

The veteran winger has certainly enjoyed the change of scenery this season. Since debuting with the Coyotes on March 5, he's put up 11 points with four goals and seven assists. That is stellar production when compared to his 22 points in 52 games with Colorado earlier in the year. Tanguay has three points over the last four games and should continue to be a solid producer over the final week of the regular season.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Continues to stay hot with Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay recorded a goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Tanguay continues to be on quite the roll with his new team out in Arizona. He's now tallied four goals and four assists with a plus-7 rating in nine games since being dealt to the desrt. That's a big change of pace from the 22 points he managed in 52 games with Colorado earlier this season. As long as he's scoring like this, the veteran winger can be rolled out with confidence.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Scores power-play goal in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay scored a power-play goal during Saturday's 4-0 victory over the Oilers.

Since coming to Arizona, the veteran winger has three goals and three assists in just five games. After not offering much in the way of fantasy value in Colorado this season, Tanguay has certainly put himself on the fantasy radar. This type of outburst isn't typical from the 36-year-old, so it could be tough for him to sustain it. However, there's nothing wrong with using him while he's hot.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Dishes out two helpers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay assisted on both Arizona goals in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

Tanguay has been incredibly productive since being traded to the Coyotes, with two goals and three assists in three games with his new team. The 36-year-old veteran has shown great chemistry with Arizona's crop of talented young forwards right off the bat, and should continue to get on the scoresheet frequently as long as he can maintain his first-line winger role.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Makes history in Coyotes debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay scored a pair of goals and had an assist in his Arizona debut Saturday against Florida.

It was a big night for the top line, as Tanguay, Anthony Duclair and Antoine Vermette combined for nine points in a 5-1 win. With his impressive performance, Tanguay becomes the first player in Coyotes/ Jets history to record three points in his team debut. Arizona is currently 10 points back of a playoff spot and had lost seven straight games prior to Saturday, but Tanguay is a proven goal-scorer who could thrive in a new environment.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Set to debut with Arizona Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay is set to make his Arizona debut Saturday against Florida, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

After missing Thursday's contest, head coach Dave Tippett confirmed Saturday that Tanguay will be on the ice. The veteran winger skated on the top line with Antoine Vermette and Anthony Duclair during Thursday's practice, but it's not clear which line he'll be on for the tilt with the Panthers. Tanguay put up four goals and 18 assists in 52 games with Colorado this season.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Out Thursday with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay (lower body) will miss Thursday's game against the Ducks, Craig Morgan of AZ Sports reports.

Tanguay practiced Wednesday and was expected to make his debut with the Coyotes on Thursday, but that will have to wait. He had 22 points in 52 games with the Avalanche this season and should provide some veteran leadership to a young Coyotes team.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Questionable for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay is questionable to make his Arizona debut Thursday night, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Head coach Dave Tippett stated after Thursday's morning skate that Tanguay is, "Dealing with a couple minor things." The news comes as a bit of a surprise considering the veteran winger practiced with the team Wednesday and skated on the top line Thursday morning. Before deploying him in fantasy lineups, check his status to see if he's on the ice for pregame warm-ups.

Coyotes' Alex Tanguay: Traded by Avs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay was traded by the Avs to the Coyotes on Monday along with Conner Bleakley and Kyle Wood in exchange for Mikkel Boedker.

Tanguay checks in with just four goals and 22 points in 52 games this season, but the 36-year-old does give the Coyotes some added depth and experience up front. How the deal impacts Tanguay's immediate fantasy prospects, however, will hinge on who his linemates with Arizona end up being.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Scratched from Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay was a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Kings.

Tanguay tallied five assists over his last nine games, but head coach Patrick Roy decided to give him an early start to his All-Star break by holding him out Wednesday night.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Scores first goal since Oct. 30
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay scored a goal, and added an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.

Tanguay now has four points in the last four games, and his first-period tally broke a 26-game goalless drought spanning back to Oct. 30. The veteran winger is currently seeing first-line minutes alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Matt Duchene, but his measly 18 points through 37 games should leave critics rightfully skeptical of Tanguay's ability to maintain that role long term.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Sets up two goals in win over Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay collected two helpers in Monday's win over San Jose.

While he's only scored twice this season, Tanguay has piled on four helpers in his last four games and is up to 12 points on the season. The veteran skated on the second line with Nathan Mackinnon and Jarome Iginla, in addition to playing on the second power-play unit, so he should continue to rack up points. While you can expect him to produce in a top-six role, his 24 shots on goal this season make it very hard for him to record goals, so look elsewhere if you're league relies heavily on goal-scoring.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay (knee) will return to action Thursday against the Rangers, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

Tanguay has missed Colorado's last 11 games with a knee injury he suffered on Nov. 6, but has participated in practice for over a week, and is now healthy enough to return to game action. The 36-year-old winger, who has tallied six points (two goals, four assists) in 14 games this season, is expected to skate alongside Mikhail Grigorenko and Jarome Iginla on the Avalanche's third line in Thursday's tilt.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay has missed 11 games with a knee injury but has been a participate at practice for nearly a week.

Before the injury, Tanguay tallied two goals and four assists in 14 games.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Resumes skating Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay (knee) skated Tuesday, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

Tanguay is still expected to miss at least another week of action with a knee injury he sustained on Nov. 6, but his return to the ice Tuesday is an encouraging indication of his progress nonetheless. Given his recovery timetable, the 36-year-old winger could potentially return to game action on Dec. 3 against the Rangers. Tanguay has tallied six points (two goals, four assists) in 14 games this season.

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: To miss extended time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay (knee) is expected to miss an "extended period" of time, Tommy Chalk of Fox Sports reports.

Tanguay will likely miss a significant amount of time as he recovers from a knee injury he suffered on Nov. 6. The team called up Andreas Martinsen to help lessen the blow of losing Tanguay, who's posted the second best plus-minus on the team with a plus-3 rating.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avalanche's Alex Tanguay: Scores first goal, drives offense in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanguay scored his first goal of the year and added an assist in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Lightning.

Everything the Avs did on offense in this one was accomplished by the line of Tanguay, Jarome Iginla and Nathan MacKinnon. The goal came on Tanguay's only shot of the game; he has just seven shots on goal over nine contests this year, the worst rate of his career, but has still managed to help fantasy owners with five points and a surprising 10 PIM.
