Tangradi signs 2-year contract with Jets

WINNIPEG — Left-winger Eric Tangradi has a new two-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

The 24-year-old forward, acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins early last season, had one goal and four points in mostly a fourth-line role with his second NHL team.

Tangradi has landed his first one-way deal, making $650,000 next season and $700,000 the year after.

Tangradi has landed his first one-way deal, making $650,000 next season and $700,000 the year after.

Tangradi, who was on a two-way contract last season making $726,000 on the top end, has landed his first one-way deal, he confirmed. He’ll make $650,000 next season and $700,000 the year after, according to reports.

"After the way things went in Winnipeg, I wanted to return from the day I left at the end of the season," Tangradi said via phone from his Philadelphia-area home today. "I was eager to jump back on board.

"Sometimes these things take a little time but I’m glad it’s done, whether it was right after the season or today."

Tangradi, as a restricted free agent, had filed for salary arbitration. Having that contract taken care of still leaves Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff with restricted free agents Zach Bogosian, Bryan Little, Blake Wheeler, Anthony Peluso, Paul Postma and Zach Redmond to deal with from a primarily Jets focus.
