Jay Beagle had the best season of his NHL career in 2016-17.

The 31-year-old who has one more year on his contract, had 13 goals and 30 points with a plus-20 rating this past season and gave the Capitals some depth scoring as a bottom-six forward. He was pointless in 13 playoff games and that did not bode well for Washington who once again were bounced from the playoffs in the second round. Look for 25-30 points next season from Beagle.

JAy Beagle has been the Capitals best player on the draw.

He is currently third in the NHL at 60.7 percent and has been particularly good in his own end where the defensive player is at a disadvantage as he has to put down his stick first. He is 60.6 percent efficient in his own zone and that is amazing considering the circumstances. Beagle has five goals and 11 points in 30 games with a plus-seven rating so if you count faceoffs in your pool, Beagle is a valuable asset.

Jay Beagle skated on a line with Alex Ovechkin during Monday's practice.

Head coach Barry Trotz is looking to shake things up after the Caps dropped a 5-1 decision to the Hurricanes on Saturday night. "Jay was sort of pigeon-holed as a guy that could kill penalties, give you energy but wasn’t going to score, and I don’t see that," Trotz said. "He’s not a natural goal-scorer like Ovi or someone else, but he keeps working on the offensive game and he keeps producing. His production for minutes played is higher than three-quarters of our team. So, why not give that young man an opportunity because he’s worked at his game?" Beagle's long-term fantasy prospects aren't great, but in the short-term his stock definitely gets a boost while he's paired with Ovechkin.
