34-Year-Old CenterC

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Primarily relied upon for his defense, Beagle finished the 2018-19 season with just 13 points in 57 games. The 33-year-old veteran forward had his lowest point output over a five-year span a season ago, failing to live up to his price tag. Because of his contract status -- three years left at $3 million per year -- it's unlikely Vancouver will be able to move on from Beagle following an underwhelming first season with the team, but moving forward, his role with the Canucks is only going to get smaller. With that in mind, outside of deeper formats, steer clear of Beagle and look for younger options to fill out your reserve unit. Read Past Outlooks

Beagle (undisclosed) has returned to the ice as part of the Canucks' Phase 2 skates, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.
ANALYSIS
Beagle missed the last five games prior to the league going on hiatus due to an undisclosed injury but was considered day-to-day at the time. With the extra months to get healthy, the veteran center will likely have to earn a spot in the lineup during training camp, which means he's a high-risk selection in playoff pools with little reward considering his offensive limitations.

A potent defensive forward, Beagle was once again a fixture in Washington's bottom six throughout the 2017-18 campaign. While his offensive totals regressed from a career-high season a year earlier, the veteran continued to be an effective contributor on the penalty kill and, most notably, in the faceoff circle (58.5 percent). With a Stanley Cup pedigree, Beagle will return to his roots in Western Canada having procured a four-year, $12 million deal with Vancouver. While he will provide a boost to the young Canucks, it is likely that Beagle will regress offensively due to the lack of talent and opportunity around him.
It seems like Beagle's been around forever, but at 31 years old, he's still got plenty of bottom-six grinding left to do. A relatively big center at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Beagle doesn't really play to his size in terms of physicality, but he’s always an asset at the faceoff dot. He’s also coming off a 2016-17 season that saw him post new career bests in goals (13), points (30) and shots (100), but it would be unwise to expect him to continue improving from there. The Caps seem to agree with that sentiment, as they left Beagle unprotected in the expansion draft, though Vegas passed him over in favor of defenseman Nate Schmidt.
A reliable fourth-line center for many seasons in D.C., Beagle’s future in the nation’s capital is questionable. Panic forced former head coach Adam Oates to try Beagle alongside Alex Ovechkin on the top-line, but the promotion was short-lived. With Barry Trotz in town, it looks like the Capitals will want former Predator Michael Latta to take the reins as the pivot on the fourth-line, so despite being a good soldier for many seasons, Beagle will have to prove his worth during training camp to make the team this September.
Beagle played in all 48 games last season, notching eight points on two goals and six assists. He will get plenty of playing time in Washington but he has limited fantasy value in most formats.
Beagle has a crack at making the roster this season as he appeared in 31 games with the Capitals last year. With a far deeper team last season he will have way less competition coming into camp in 2011. As an undrafted player he has spent most of his career in the minors but has notched three career goals and two assists in 41 games. Do not expect anything from a fantasy perspective, but he may be a relevant piece to the Caps depth chart this season.
Beagle just signed an extension with Washington during the offseason making him an interesting player going into the season. An undrafted player spent most of his last three years in Hershey, but has made a few appearances in D.C. Look for him to have a roster shot, but he is more than likely a year or so away from playing in the NHL.
Beagle is a 6-1 center who played three games with the Caps last season. He has upside, but will probably start the year in AHL Hershey. With center being a position with not much depth, Beagle may see some time in the NHL again this coming season.
