2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wagner, who remains under contract with the Bruins through the upcoming season, ended up being a surprisingly solid addition to the team last year, chipping in 12 goals and 19 points in 76 regular-season games while mostly working on the team's fourth line. While the 6-foot, 198-pounder is off the radar in most fantasy formats, the gritty 28-year-old does at least help out in leagues where his hits (147) factor in. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Wagner had surgery on his arm after the team's playoff run in June. It appears he's made a full recovery and will add a veteran presence to the Bruins' traveling roster Monday. Wagner missed the final eight games of the postseason last year, but he adds a valuable physical presence and enough offense to give him solid job security this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
The 27-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Bruins in July after recording a career-high seven goals and 16 points in 79 games between the Ducks and Islanders last season. With any luck, moving from the worst defensive team to a contender could result in a complete reversal of his minus-10 rating. He doesn't supply as many penalty minutes as most fantasy owners would like from a fourth-liner (37 last season), but his 253 hits were the third-most in the league last season. His physicality attracted the Bruins and it should appeal to select virtual-league owners as well.
Wagner was down in the minors with AHL San Diego for 30 games last season, which doesn't bode well for his career trajectory and chances to make a fantasy impact in 2017-18. A depth option down the middle, the 26-year-old has managed only 13 points in 95 career contests at hockey's highest level.
