Tangradi and Hutchinson sent down

According to the official website, both Eric Tangradi and Andrew Hutchinson were sent to Wilkes-Barre.

This isn't a surprise for either player. Tangradi was playing the fewest minutes of the forwards, and Hutchinson was the most recent call-up from Wilkes-Barre.

I think Tangradi has a future with the Pens in a top 6 role. He has the size and strength they desperately need. You want him playing tons of minutes in Wilkes-Barre instead of barely cracking 10 minutes per night in Pittsburgh. He'll be back.

This means that one of the injured forwards, most likely Jordan Staal, will return on Wednesday in Tampa.
