2018 Fantasy Outlook
A potent defensive forward, Beagle was once again a fixture in Washington's bottom six throughout the 2017-18 campaign. While his offensive totals regressed from a career-high season a year earlier, the veteran continued to be an effective contributor on the penalty kill and, most notably, in the faceoff circle (58.5 percent). With a Stanley Cup pedigree, Beagle will return to his roots in Western Canada having procured a four-year, $12 million deal with Vancouver. While he will provide a boost to the young Canucks, it is likely that Beagle will regress offensively due to the lack of talent and opportunity around him. Read Past Outlooks

March 30, 2019
Beagle posted an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Stars.
ANALYSIS
Beagle was also the only Canuck to finish over 50 percent in faceoffs, winning 16 of 25 draws. He has generated four helpers over his last eight games to bring his season total to 13 points in 54 games. Beagle added a hit Saturday to give him his first 100-hit campaign as well. His usage remains primarily in a defensive capacity, limiting his fantasy appeal.

It seems like Beagle's been around forever, but at 31 years old, he's still got plenty of bottom-six grinding left to do. A relatively big center at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Beagle doesn't really play to his size in terms of physicality, but he’s always an asset at the faceoff dot. He’s also coming off a 2016-17 season that saw him post new career bests in goals (13), points (30) and shots (100), but it would be unwise to expect him to continue improving from there. The Caps seem to agree with that sentiment, as they left Beagle unprotected in the expansion draft, though Vegas passed him over in favor of defenseman Nate Schmidt.
A reliable fourth-line center for many seasons in D.C., Beagle’s future in the nation’s capital is questionable. Panic forced former head coach Adam Oates to try Beagle alongside Alex Ovechkin on the top-line, but the promotion was short-lived. With Barry Trotz in town, it looks like the Capitals will want former Predator Michael Latta to take the reins as the pivot on the fourth-line, so despite being a good soldier for many seasons, Beagle will have to prove his worth during training camp to make the team this September.
Beagle played in all 48 games last season, notching eight points on two goals and six assists. He will get plenty of playing time in Washington but he has limited fantasy value in most formats.
Beagle has a crack at making the roster this season as he appeared in 31 games with the Capitals last year. With a far deeper team last season he will have way less competition coming into camp in 2011. As an undrafted player he has spent most of his career in the minors but has notched three career goals and two assists in 41 games. Do not expect anything from a fantasy perspective, but he may be a relevant piece to the Caps depth chart this season.
Beagle just signed an extension with Washington during the offseason making him an interesting player going into the season. An undrafted player spent most of his last three years in Hershey, but has made a few appearances in D.C. Look for him to have a roster shot, but he is more than likely a year or so away from playing in the NHL.
Beagle is a 6-1 center who played three games with the Caps last season. He has upside, but will probably start the year in AHL Hershey. With center being a position with not much depth, Beagle may see some time in the NHL again this coming season.
