Agozzino netted a goal and served up two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche. Agozzino was claimed on waivers from the Penguins on Feb. 24, and his goal Wednesday was his first point in four games with the Ducks. The 29-year-old forward has three points in 21 contests overall -- he's mostly used in a fourth-line role that won't interest fantasy owners much, if at all.
Agozzino was claimed off waivers by the Ducks from the Penguins on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Agozzino recorded one assist, five shots and nine hits in his last seven contests, averaging a mere 7:10 of ice time. The move was likely designed to ship the winger down to the minors, but instead, he will now link up with the Ducks.
The Penguins placed Agozzino on waivers Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Even though the 29-year-old is in the Penguins' lineup for Sunday's game against Washington, he was placed on waivers by the team ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Agozzino will likely shift to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton if he goes unclaimed on the waiver wire.
Agozzino picked up an assist in Sunday's 5-1 victory over Detroit. Agozzino's helper ended a six-game pointless streak for the Ontario native, a stretch that included three contests as a healthy scratch. It was just the second point of the year for the 28-year-old, so fantasy owners will likely want to hold off on picking him up right away. Still, with Patric Hornqvist slotting into a fourth-line role, Agozzino could see an uptick in ice time and opportunities to write his name on the scoresheet.
Agozzino was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday. In nine appearances for the Penguins this season, Agozzino notched one assist, three shots and four PIM while averaging a mere 6:24 of ice time. Whether the winger gets into Friday's matchup with the Flyers will likely depend on the health of Dominik Kahun (concussion).
