2019 Fantasy Outlook
Caggiula began the 2018-19 campaign with the Oilers, notching seven goals and 11 points before a mid-season trade sent him to Chicago, where he picked up an additional five goals and 12 points in 26 contests. The 5-foot-10 winger's compete level is off the charts and he's surprisingly physical for his size, but he'll likely have to settle for a bottom-six role with the Blackhawks in 2019-20, and won't see much time on the man advantage, capping his fantasy upside. Caggiula could threaten the 30-point mark if he's able to stay healthy this season, but fantasy owners would be wise to target players with higher upside in the later rounds of this year's drafts.

Assist and fight in overtime loss
LWChicago Blackhawks
April 1, 2019
Caggiula posted a helper and five PIM in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.
ANALYSIS
The fight came late in the third period against hulking Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, who's got seven inches and 90 pounds on Caggiula. It's a little concerning to see Caggiula fighting in just his second game back from a concussion, especially as the winger is not known for his skill in fisticuffs. Caggiula has 19 points in 52 games between the Blackhawks and Oilers this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Caggiula finished the 2017-18 campaign with five points in the final 10 games, bringing his season total to 13 goals and seven assists through 67 contests. Last year, Edmonton deployed the Pickering, Ontario native across several lines as well as the power play (0:59) and penalty kill (0:44). The 23-year-old winger is best used in deep leagues and daily formats until he finds a more consistent role. Caggiula signed on for two more years this past offseason, affording him greater continuity within Edmonton's system.
After starring in his senior season at the University of North Dakota to the tune of 25 goals and 51 points in 39 games, Caggiula signed an entry-level deal with the Oilers and jumped right into the NHL last season. Though he missed the first month-plus to an undisclosed injury, Caggiula went on to play 60 games, recording seven goals, 11 assists and a plus-3 rating from Edmonton’s bottom-six ranks. Not a big guy at 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, Caggiula nonetheless plays a physical, high-energy game that complements his team’s high-end scoring well, and he has the potential to rise into the top-six ranks eventually. For now, though, he projects to be stuck in a fourth-line role at left wing, though he'll probably see some power-play time again after averaging 1:39 per game last year.
