Tangradi (knee) was placed on waivers by Detroit on Wednesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports.

EDGE Analysis

The big winger missed the vast majority of training camp through injury, which certainly didn't help his case for earning an NHL roster spot. Should he clear waivers, Tangradi is likely to be reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids, where he spent the entirety of last season, scoring 44 points in 54 contests.

Tangradi (knee) is slated to return to the lineup on the team's top line alongside Justin Abdelkader and Michael Rasmussen during Saturday's preseason finale, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tangradi played well for the team's AHL affiliate last season and will get one last look Saturday before the Red Wings make more cuts to the roster. He should get plenty of run during the preseason finale, but doesn't figure to be a huge fantasy contributor during the regular season this year even if he earns a roster spot.

Tangradi (knee) was scratched from Thursday night's 4-2 home loss to the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old is an organizational depth player who is unlikely to break camp with the parent club, yet he has an outside chance of filling in when injuries strike.

Tangradi (knee) isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's preseason game in Boston, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The burly winger sustained his malady on the first day of training camp Friday. Tangradi has appeared in just eight NHL games since 2014-15, as he's mostly been deployed in the minor-league ranks. His next chance to suit up will be Wednesday against the Penguins.

Tangradi suffered a knee injury on the opening day of training camp and will be reevaluated Saturday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tangradi will battle throughout camp for an Opening Night roster spot, though an early injury that holds him out an extended period of time could detract from his chances at securing one. More information on the injury and a potential timetable should arrive Saturday after he gets checked out by doctors.

Tangradi signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Red Wings on Monday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
