Cole Caufield

23-Year-Old Right WingRW
Montreal Canadiens
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Caufield potted 26 goals and earned 36 points in 46 games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. The 22-year-old sniper tied for first on the Canadiens with seven power-play goals and led the team in even-strength goals (19) despite sitting out the final 36 contests of the 2022-23 campaign. Caufield was rewarded for his outstanding potential with an eight-year, $62.8 million contract during the offseason. It probably won't be long before he is a 50-goal scorer, but a more conservative expectation for this year would be somewhere in the 30-40 range, which depends greatly on his ability to stay healthy. Caufield, who is expected to be available for training camp, is a worthwhile gamble to take in fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed an eight-year, $62.8 million contract with the Canadiens in June of 2023.
Seven-game, nine-point streak
RWMontreal Canadiens
April 14, 2024
Caufield scored twice Saturday in a 5-4 shootout loss to Ottawa.
ANALYSIS
Caufield stretched his scoring streak to seven games and nine points, including seven goals. In that span, he has fired 34 shots. Caufield has been a shooting machine this season -- he has fired 306 overall, which ranks top-10 league-wide. His shooting percentage in 2023-24 is just 8.8, but if Caufield converted at his career mark of 11.7 percent, he'd have 35 goals instead of his current 27. The 23-year-old winger has 40-goal potential in 2024-25 and should be drafted accordingly.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Hopes to play for Team USA
RWMontreal Canadiens
April 9, 2024
Caufield hopes to play for Team USA at the upcoming IIHF World Championship, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.
ANALYSIS
As long as Caufield is able to get through the last five games of the regular season without sustaining an injury, he's expected to get the opportunity to suit up for Team USA in May. He's picked up 24 goals and 59 points through 77 contests with Montreal this year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
It seemed as if the hockey world was ready to write Caufield off after he scored just once through his first 30 games a in2021-22, but the light bulb went off for the youngster midway through the year and Caufield proceeded to light the lamp 22 times in his final 47 contests. That's nearly a 50-goal pace over the course of a full year, and while no one expects Caufield to produce at that level in 2022-23, it's pretty clear the real Caufield is the guy we saw late in the year. Still just 21 years of age and locked into a major role on a team trying to find its footing, Caufield should crack the 30-goal plateau with ease assuming he is able to remain healthy in 2022-23.
Caufield burst onto the scene late in 2020-21 with five points in 10 games after wrapping up his season at the University of Wisconsin. The diminutive winger then proved he was set to stay in the NHL with four goals and eight assists in 20 postseason contests as the Canadiens made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals. The 20-year-old winger showed great chemistry with Nick Suzuki in the playoffs, which could lead to a promising pairing of young forwards in the Habs' top six to open the season. Caufield may still play some sheltered minutes as a young forward, but he'll likely see plenty of power-play time. Fantasy managers will likely draft him in the middle rounds with the expectation of 40 points, a high shot volume and perhaps a nomination for the Calder Trophy at the end of the campaign.
