Description: The Penguins have traded 24-year-old winger Eric Tangradi to the Winnipeg Jets for a seventh-round draft pick. SOURCE: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: Tangradi has just five points in 45 career games, including zero in five games this season. He saw some ice time with Evgeni Malkin earlier this season but had been a healthy scratch in the past eight contests. He has a better shot at fantasy relevance with Winnipeg but he's still a long shot to contribute this season.

Description: Penguins forward Eric Tangradi skated on Evgeni Malkin's line (Dustin Jeffrey centered the line since Malkin hasn't arrived at training camp yet) with James Neal on Sunday and will be there again when Malkin gets to camp on Monday. SOURCE: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Insight: Tangradi has played 40 NHL games over three seasons and scored just five points but playing with Malkin could make the Philadelphia native a valuable fantasy asset. Just ask Neal, who scored 40 goals with 41 assists on Malkin's line last season.
