Ryan Dzingel has signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes that will pay him a total of $6.75 million.
The 27-year-old Dzingel experienced what could be considered a mini-breakout last season in his third full year in the NHL. We've seen a steady upward trend in his production so far in his career; jumping from 32 points to 41, up to last season's 56 (26 of which were goals). The most encouraging part of this trend is that 21 goals and 45 of his points from last season were at even-strength. If Dzingel's talent can translate at even strength in Ottawa of all places, it's easy to be optimistic about his prospects in Carolina with what's become an intriguing group of young forwards.
Ryan Dzingel scored his first goal of the post-season Saturday, as Columbus would lose Game Five to Boston 4-3. The Blue Jackets will be facing elimination for the first time during these playoffs in Game Six Monday.
Dzingel has been very quiet this post-season as he only has one point in eight games played. He will need to step it up to help his team avoid elimination in Game Six this upcoming Monday night at home.

With the two assists, Ryan Dzingel is now up to 29 points through 39 games played this season. Dzingel is just 12 points shy of his career high 41 points last season. With just under half of the season remaining, he is on track to eclipse that mark.

Ryan Dzingel picked up two assists on Friday night when the Ottawa Senators defeated the Detroit Red Wings 4-2.
With the two assists Ryan Dzingel is now up to 12 assists to go along with his 12 goals through 31 games played this season. Dzingel's usage and point production are enough to warrant some fantasy consideration in larger leagues, especially in leagues where he has LW & RW eligibility.
