Tangradi, who just turned 20, is having a fine season with the OHL's Belleville Bulls. In 52 games, he has 38 goals and 87 points. He was drafted by the Ducks in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
I guess the second round isn't so bad? PK Subban was taken next after Tangradi. Of course I know at least one of you in here thinks the late first and second is just one big mess of "probably-miss" prospects.
Here's a potential late first rounder for 2009, ranked 30th in fact. He currently has an Islanders emblem beside his name if you are into those Mock Draft thingies. We'll be sure to keep our eye on what happens in case he's the one that got away.
It's why I'm here folks!
