Caggiula (undisclosed) was added to injured reserve Sunday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. The second-year winger was able to play two games before going down, and the team hasn't provided much information since it happened a week ago. Edmonton is expected to recall a forward in Caggiula's absence and should provide additional updates s he nears full health.
Caggiula (undisclosed) is projected to sit out Monday's home game versus the Jets, NHL.com reports. It remains unclear what he's going through, but by sitting out Monday, the bottom-six winger will have all the way until Saturday to rest and better prepare for the next contest.
Caggiula is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. Currently, there aren't any specific details concerning Caggiula's condition, but we imagine he'd be reevaluated ahead of Monday's home tilt against the Jets. If he can't suit up for that one, then Zack Kassian would assume his third-line spot, per Matheson.
Despite limited ice time, Caggiula opened the season with a team-leading eight hits in Wednesday's win over the Flames. Caggiula's ice time was limited Wednesday in part because he left the game briefly with an injury, but he returned and continued to be a bruiser. Unfortunately, that's all he contributed to the cause outside of a single shot.
Caggiula scored an unassisted goal in the first period of Wednesday's Game 7 loss to Anaheim. Caggiula had a nice run to finish the playoffs with three goals, 11 shots, 15 PIM and eight hits over the final four games. He landed on Connor McDavid's wing during that stretch and played well alongside the young superstar, which could put Caggiula in line to play with McDavid again next season. It's a wait-and-see situation, but Caggiula is a player to keep tabs on.
