Drake Caggiula scored two goals, one shorthanded, in the Oilers Thursday night win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy Impact: All four of Caggiula's goals have come in two games. He hasn't been viewed as much of an offensive weapon but he was assisted on his even-strength goal by Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. If he sticks close to them going forward then he may produce enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Milan Lucic registered an assist in a win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Lucic has had a very slow start to the season as he has four points in nine games with a minus-five rating. He didn't do much for fantasy owners last season, which looks to be continuing this season. He does rack up hits, so he may have some value to your team.
