Caggiula signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Sabres on Tuesday.
Caggiula appeared in 38 games split between the Coyotes and the Sabres last season, picking up 10 points, 46 shots and 64 hits over that span. He'll continue to serve as a bottom-six option without much offensive upside for Buffalo next year, severely limiting his fantasy upside.
Caggiula scored twice on four shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Penguins.
Not much went right for the Sabres on Thursday, but Caggiula was able to deposit his first two goals in blue and gold. The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Coyotes on April 9. For the year, Caggiula has 10 points, 44 shots on net, 63 hits and a minus-5 rating in 37 contests.
Caggiula was claimed by the Sabres off waivers Friday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.
Caggiula has picked up one goal and seven points in 27 appearances with the Coyotes this campaign. He'll likely slot into a rotational, bottom-six role with Buffalo.
Caggiula was waived by Arizona on Thursday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

Caggiula has been a healthy scratch for four of the Coyotes' 14 games in March
Caggiula has been mired in an 11-game point drought, which has made him more of a rotational player for head coach Rick Tocchet. The 26-year-old winger has seven points, 15 PIM and 46 hits through 26 appearances this season. Caggiula can provide grit on any line, but he'll be competing with John Hayden and Christian Fischer for playing time while Tyler Pitlick (undisclosed) is out.
Caggiula scored a goal on three shots and added a fighting major in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Caggiula dropped the mitts with Avalanche rookie blueliner Bowen Byram early in the third period. The 26-year-old Caggiula then scored the Coyotes' second goal in the final minute of regulation, but that was as close as they got. The tally was Caggiula's first of the year -- he's added six helpers, 22 shots on net, 29 hits and 15 PIM in 15 contests.
Caggiula posted an assist and two hits in Monday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.
In just his second game back from a lower-body injury, Caggiula made his way onto the scoresheet. He set up Jakob Chychrun for the game-tying goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Caggiula has worked on the third line since his return. He's up to six helpers, 18 shots on net, 24 hits and a plus-1 rating in 13 contests, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper formats.

Caggiula is expected to return to action after missing the last five games. The 26-year-old collected five assists and 17 shots on net through the first 11 contests.

Caggiula has been skating on his own, so he's making progress toward a return to action. However, he'll miss a second straight game Friday. The 26-year-old is eligible to return to action for Saturday's rematch against the Blues, although there's still no clear timeline for his return.
Caggiula (lower body) skated on his own ahead of Thursday's practice, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Caggiula is making progress but he wasn't a full participant in Thursday's practice, so his status for Friday against St. Louis is still questionable. The 26-year-old forward has five assists and 19 hits in 11 games this season.
Caggiula (lower body) won't be in the lineup versus St. Louis on Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Caggiula managed just 3:56 of ice time against the Blues on Saturday before suffering his lower-body injury. While the 26-year-old winger is still looking for his first goal of the season, he has managed five helpers, 11 shots and 15 hits in his last eight contests. In Caggiula's stead, Larson Crouse (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday.
Caggiula won't return to Saturday's game against the Blues after suffering a lower-body injury, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
The 26-year-old logged just 3:56 of ice time across six shifts and fired one shot on net before departing. Caggiula will aim to recover for Monday's rematch against the Blues. If he's unable to get back in time, Dryden Hunt likely will re-enter the lineup.
Caggiula notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blues.
Caggiula set up Tyler Pitlick for the opening tally of the game. It's the second assist in as many games for Caggiula, who has five helpers in nine outings this season. He's added 16 shots, 19 hits and 10 PIM, but the 26-year-old has yet to score a goal of his own. He's seeing fairly solid top-six usage alongside the red-hot Christian Dvorak, so offensive chances should continue to arise for Caggiula in the near term.
Caggiula generated an assist, two shots on goal and four PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.
Caggiula had the secondary helper on a Christian Dvorak tally in the first period. Head coach Rick Tocchet shuffled his lines for Tuesday's game, and Caggiula ended up on the second line. The 26-year-old doesn't get a ton of ice time regardless of his linemates, but he's produced four helpers, 14 shots on goal and 19 hits through nine appearances.
Caggiula recorded two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Caggiula set up linemates Nick Schmaltz and Conor Garland for the game-winning goal and an insurance tally, respectively. In his last two games, Caggiula has three helpers. He's still seeing roughly 12 minutes per game, so don't expect this surge to last all that long, even with the 26-year-old listed in a top-line role. He's added four PIM, nine shots on goal and six hits in five outings.
Caggiula posted an assist, three shots on goal and four PIM in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
With Barrett Hayton (undisclosed) held out for precautionary reasons, Caggiula got a turn as the top-line left wing. It worked out, as he earned his first assist as a Coyote with the set-up on Nick Schmaltz's second-period tally. Ultimately, Caggiula didn't see any extra ice time, skating 11:47 in the contest. He's posted nine shots, four PIM and five hits through four appearances, but the 26-year-old is best suited for a bottom-six role.
Caggiula signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Coyotes on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
This seems to be a smart, low-risk signing for the Coyotes in an attempt to bulk up their bottom-six scoring. Splitting time between Chicago and Edmonton over the last three seasons, Caggiula pocketed 34 goals in 162 games. The 5-foot-10 winger will have to fight for a spot in Arizona's everyday lineup.
Caggiula didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Blackhawks, which means he'll hit the open market Friday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Caggiula was a solid role player for Chicago last season, picking up 15 points while dishing out 81 hits in 40 contests, but the Hawks are in a crunch cap-wise, so he'll end up being a casualty of their lack of cash. The 26-year-old winger won't have any trouble finding a new landing spot once free agency opens Friday.
Caggiula produced an assist, two shots on goal and five hits in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Vegas in Game 5.
Caggiula had the lone helper on Patrick Kane's second-period tally. The assist gave Caggiula a three-game point streak (one goal, two helpers). Those were his only points in eight playoff outings, to go with 33 hits, eight shots and two PIM.
