Eric Tangradi Suspended for Griffins/Moose Game 5

NHL: Preseason-Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League today announced that Grand Rapids Griffins forward Eric Tangradi has been suspended for one (1) game as a consequence of a cross-checking incident in a playoff game vs. Manitoba on Apr. 26.

Tangradi was suspended under the provisions of AHL Rule 28.1 (supplementary discipline). He will miss Game 5 of the Central Division Semifinals, Monday (Apr. 30) vs. Manitoba.

Tangradi wasn’t penalized for the cross-check during game four, but the league decided it was worth another look and now the Griffins will be without the veteran forward for Monday’s series-deciding game in Grand Rapids.
