2019 Fantasy Outlook
One of the Jackets' trade-deadline rentals, Dzingel put together a career-best campaign between Ottawa and Columbus but completely vanished during the playoffs, managing only one goal in nine games. The 27-year-old can't be faulted for his work ethic -- he's turned himself from a seventh-round pick in the 2011 draft into a two-way threat who uses his speed on the forecheck and backcheck -- and after scoring 49 goals over the last two seasons, he's established himself as a middle-six forward who can handle a variety of roles. After signing a two-year deal with the Hurricanes in the offseason, Dzingel probably won't see the power-play time he did with the Senators, and while he should still be productive he could have trouble topping 50 points again.

Settling in nicely with new team

November 2, 2019
Dzingel notched his ninth point of the season with an assist in Friday's 7-3 romp over the Red Wings.
Having scored 20-plus goals in each of the previous two seasons with Ottawa and Columbus, Dzingel has been a nice addition for the Canes this season, giving them a legitimate scoring threat from the third line. He's not seeing quite the level of ice time he was used to last season (15:12 vs. 16:49), but he's seeing more minutes on the power play (2:47 vs. 1:56). Dzingel would make a nice addition to your fantasy squad if he's available -- go check your waiver wire.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Dzingel was one of the only Senators to take a real step forward last season, scoring 23 goals to tie Matt Duchene for the team lead. Yet, Dzingel isn't getting much attention because he hasn't proven himself on a regular basis. His upward progression -- from three goals to 14, and now to 23 -- suggests he could possess the talent required to become a consistent producer for Ottawa. Odds are he's going to get plenty of chances this year which makes him a reasonable target as a late-round flier or an early waiver-wire pickup. Once you've filled out your starting lineup, feel free to take a flier on the 26-year-old, who is well-positioned to have a breakout season as one of the only legitimate offensive threats in Ottawa.
Dzingel enjoyed a breakout of sorts in his first full NHL season, setting career highs in goals (14), assists (18) and shots on goal (123) last year. A natural center, he’s still adjusting to playing on the wing, but if his performance last season is any indication of how well he’s adapting to his new position, he could burst through the 40-point threshold in 2017-18 if he gets enough opportunities. The American forward will likely occupy a bottom-six role while the Senators are at even strength next season, but he should also continue to skate on Ottawa’s second power-play unit. Dzingel won't be a sexy pick in this year’s fantasy drafts, but he'll be a decent option for fantasy owners in deeper leagues who are looking to round out their forward corps in the later rounds.
