July 2021 – Craggs signed a one-year deal with the Rochester Americans in hopes of eventually making his way back to an NHL contract in the future. Pat Quinn

 

June 2021 – Craggs skated in the ECHL in the early going in 2021. The power forward scored at a point-per-game pace in his first pro season in 2020 and continued the same trend. He was recalled to the AHL and saw time with the Chicago Wolves to round out his year. Already at 25, Craggs’ trajectory has it’s limitations. His board play and next front presence are his strong points while his skating and foot speed remain questionable as he looks to make the next step. His style of play pairs itself well to the Nashville brand, but don’t it could be a long wait before he sees NHL time. Nicholas Kawka

 

March 2020 – Craggs began his pro career in the for Florida in the ECHL this season.  After quickly posting 11 points in 12 games, he was recalled to Milwaukee in early October and has stuck with the Admirals all season.  The Bowling Green alum has fit in perfectly with his style of play as a solid winger with soft hands in tight and strong board work. Craggs brings a gritty and old school element to the game.  He has been playing in the bottom six in Milwaukee and will continue to try and work his way up the lineup in time. Nicholas Kawka

 

July 2019 – After his third season at Bowling Green, the Predators signed Craggs to an ELC.  He plays a physical game while not lining up as the biggest on the ice. His compact size gives him great balance and an advantage along the boards to either win battles against the opposition oror work his way out of the corners.  The left shooting winger could add a physical element to Nashville that some felt was missing in the playoffs. Craggs has moderately produced at the NCAA level, but will hold high values in fantasy leagues scoring hits and penalty minutes as he poured in over 100PIM in each of the past two seasons without fighting majors.  Craggs should be looked upon as a bottom 6 winger option in the near future. Nicholas Kawka
