Caggiula (hand) could return against Colorado or Winnipeg, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports. It's a step in the right direction for Caggiula, who injured his hand earlier this month. The 24-year-old is eligible to come off injured reserve in time to dress in Tuesday's game versus the Avalanche, something many believe could happen based on him accompanying his team on this road trip. In 23 games, Caggiula has just seven goals and 10 points total, making him a low-value fantasy option in most formats.
The Oilers placed Caggiula (hand) on injured reserve Thursday. Caggiula is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured hand Thursday, so more information regarding an expected timetable for his recovery should be available soon. Now that he's on IR, the 24-year-old winger won't be eligible to return until Tuesday against Colorado, so he'll miss Edmonton's next two contests at a minimum.
Caggiula (hand) will undergo an MRI on Thursday to determine whether his injury is long term, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports. While initial reports suggested that Caggiula's injury is minor, the skater now requiring an MRI doesn't sound encouraging. A virtual unknown outside of Edmonton heading into this season, Caggiula averaged a career-best 1.7 points per 60 minutes through his first 23 games of the 2018-19 campaign, and an extended absence could actually affect a good amount of fantasy owners in deep leagues. We'll keep you abreast of this situation as more official details are disclosed by the team.
Caggiula won't play Wednesday against St. Louis due to a minor hand injury. It doesn't sound like Caggiula's injury will keep him sidelined for long, so he could be back in action as soon as Friday against the Wild. The Oilers will hope that ends up being the case, as he's been a solid source of secondary scoring this season, notching seven goals and 10 points in 23 appearances.
Caggiula dished out an assist in Tuesday's overtime win versus the Sharks. The Sharks shifted passes through traffic before Connor McDavid found Caggiula back-door for an easy tap-in goal. This is Caggiula's third straight game with a point, and he has a goal and three assists in that span. He continues to be a valuable physical asset to McDavid's line as well, dishing out six hits in this game and 19 in the last four.
