2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dzingel was one of the only Senators to take a real step forward last season, scoring 23 goals to tie Matt Duchene for the team lead. Yet, Dzingel isn't getting much attention because he hasn't proven himself on a regular basis. His upward progression -- from three goals to 14, and now to 23 -- suggests he could possess the talent required to become a consistent producer for Ottawa. Odds are he's going to get plenty of chances this year which makes him a reasonable target as a late-round flier or an early waiver-wire pickup. Once you've filled out your starting lineup, feel free to take a flier on the 26-year-old, who is well-positioned to have a breakout season as one of the only legitimate offensive threats in Ottawa.

Ottawa placed Dzingel (lower body) on injured reserve Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Dzingel likely suffered his injury during Wednesday's 7-4 loss to Philadelphia, and will now be sidelined for the Senators' next two games at a minimum. The recently recalled Nick Paul will likely take on a bottom-six role until Dzingel is cleared to return to game action.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Dzingel enjoyed a breakout of sorts in his first full NHL season, setting career highs in goals (14), assists (18) and shots on goal (123) last year. A natural center, he’s still adjusting to playing on the wing, but if his performance last season is any indication of how well he’s adapting to his new position, he could burst through the 40-point threshold in 2017-18 if he gets enough opportunities. The American forward will likely occupy a bottom-six role while the Senators are at even strength next season, but he should also continue to skate on Ottawa’s second power-play unit. Dzingel won't be a sexy pick in this year’s fantasy drafts, but he'll be a decent option for fantasy owners in deeper leagues who are looking to round out their forward corps in the later rounds.
