Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Grabs helper Monday

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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Lands on IR

Caggiula (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CapFriendly reports. 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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Out against Blues

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. Considering the Yotes are entering a back-to-back, Caggiula will likely also be out versus Colorado on Tuesday.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Exits early Saturday

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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Assists in consecutive games

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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Provides helper

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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Slings two helpers

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.

Coyotes' Drake Caggiula: Nabs assist in top-line role

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.
