Forward Tangradi in the fold with Penguins

Penguins/NHL Videos

Friday, Nov. 11, 2011
 

The Penguins have recalled their best forward prospect, left wing Eric Tangradi, from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.

Tangradi leads Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and is 10th in the AHL with seven goals. He has 12 points in 12 games.

Coming off an indifferent training camp, Tangradi's recall comes at a surprising time. The Penguins sent center Dustin Jeffrey and left wing Steve MacIntyre to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for a "conditioning assignment" Tuesday, but the Penguins said both remain on the active 23-man roster.

Earlier in the day, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma announced right wing Tyler Kennedy as a "game-time decision" for Friday night. He has not played since Oct. 15 because of a concussion.

Celebrating the vets

The Penguins will honor military veterans with a full day of activities Friday through their game Friday night against Dallas at 7 p.m. On the "Support Our Heroes" agenda:

• 12 wounded veterans will attend the game-day practice at Consol Energy Center. They represent Wounded Warrior Project, Operation Troop Appreciation and the Veteran's Administration.

• Players will wear special camouflage jerseys in pre-game warm-ups. The jerseys will be autographed and auctioned with proceeds going to Wound Warrior Project and Operation Troops Appreciation.

• Fans in attendance will receive an American Flag Foundation wristband.

• ROTC members will be stationed at all entry gates.

• Military veterans will participate in Zamboni rides during game breaks and intermissions.

• Select military members will be hosted in suites purchased by Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

• All veterans will receive a 20-percent discount at the team store today and Saturday.
