Alex Tanguay is a Canadian left winger on the Calgary Flames.
Tanguay was drafted 12th overall by the Colorado Avalanche in 1998. He joined the team in 1999, and played the next 7 seasons with the Avs. He won the Stanley Cup with the team in 2001, scoring the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Finals series against New Jersey. In 2006, Tanguay was traded to Calgary, where he had his best statistical season, scoring 22 goals and 81 points. Tanguay was traded to Montreal in the 2008 offseason. He scored 16 goals and 41 points for the Canadiens in 2008-09, and signed with the Lightning in 2009, as one of the major free agent splashes over the summer. He had a decent season in Tampa, scoring 10 goals and 37 points playing mostly on the 2nd and 3rd lines, but was not re-signed after the season and was picked back up by Calgary during the 2010 offseason.
