  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Trouble getting into lineup

    Gagner has been scratched for six of the Oilers' 10 games in February.

    Gagner has been the Oilers' most frequent healthy scratch during a stretch in which the team is fully healthy and carrying only one extra skater. The 34-year-old doesn't have a point since Jan. 20, though he's played just six times since then. Overall, he's at 10 points, 44 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 26 appearances.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Nets game-winner

    Gagner scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

    The Oilers' superstars were mostly quieted, but Gagner was able to make an impact from the fourth line in his second game back from an undisclosed injury. The 34-year-old scored early in the third period, and that goal was the game-winner. He has 10 points, 41 shots on net and a plus-3 rating over 20 appearances this season. If Gagner continues to play well, it may be difficult for Adam Erne to find his way back into the lineup.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Cleared to return against Kraken

    Gagner (undisclosed) will be in action versus Seattle on Thursday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.

    Gagner will suit up for the first time since Dec. 21 against the Devils, a stretch of 10 games out of the lineup. With Gagner cleared to play, Adam Erne will find himself relegated to the press box. The veteran Gagner has managed nine points through 18 outings this season and could push for the 20-point threshold after missing that mark last year.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Not playing Tuesday

    Gagner (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Maple Leafs, according to Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Gagner, who might still be dealing with concussion-like symptoms, hasn't been in the lineup since Dec. 21 against New Jersey. Gregor reported Tuesday that Gagner hasn't been cleared to return to the lineup yet. According to the Oilers' official site, the 34-year-old forward skated as an extra during Tuesday's morning skate. Gagner has nine points and 39 shots on goal in 18 appearances this campaign.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Still banged up

    Gagner (undisclosed) is still banged up, which is why he didn't take the spot of Ryan McLeod (illness) for Saturday's game versus the Canadiens, Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton reports.

    Gagner was reportedly cleared of a concussion Jan. 5, but he hasn't gotten back into the lineup. Gregor's report sheds light as for why Gagner has been sitting out. The 34-year-old will miss his ninth straight game Saturday and should be considered out indefinitely until a further update is available.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Available to return

    Gagner (concussion) is fully recovered but won't play Saturday against Ottawa, Tony Brar of Oilers TV reports.

    Gagner missed five games with the injury. The 34-year-old veteran has four goals, five assists, 12 hits and 39 shots on goal in 18 contests this season. When he is back in the lineup, Gagner should occupy a bottom-six role.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Won't play Tuesday

    Gagner (undisclosed) won't play against Philadelphia on Tuesday, according to Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Not on road trip

    Gagner (undisclosed) is not on the Oilers' road trip in California.

    Gagner will likely be out until Jan. 2 versus the Flyers at a minimum. With Gagner out of the lineup, expect Adam Erne and Connor Brown to have more stability in the short term.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Out Friday

    Gagner (undisclosed) will not be available Friday against the Rangers, Tony Brar of Oilers TV reports.

    Gagner tallied two assists in Thursday's win over the Devils and has six points over his last 10 appearances. Edmonton's next game will be Thursday against the Sharks. Connor Brown will dress in Gagner's absence against New York.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Two helpers in win

    Gagner logged a pair of assists, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    Gagner has five points over his last six games, and three of those points (all helpers) have been against the Devils. The 34-year-old set up goals by Ryan McLeod and Adam Erne as the Oilers got some contributions from their bottom six in Thursday's win. Gagner is up to a solid nine points with 39 shots and a plus-3 rating over 18 appearances this season, so he should have no trouble staying in the lineup when healthy.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Adds two points in win

    Gagner picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Chicago.

    Gagner tallied the eventual game-winning goal in the first period, burying a net-front feed from Derek Ryan to put Edmonton ahead 2-1 -- he then added an assist on Leon Draisaitl's goal in the second. The 34-year-old Gagner now has three points in his last two games after he was held to just one in his previous nine contests. He's up to seven points (four goals, three assists) through 14 games in a bottom-six role with the Oilers this season.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Garners helper Sunday

    Gagner notched an assist in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    Gagner snapped a three-game drought when he set up Derek Ryan on the opening goal late in the first period. The 34-year-old Gagner has done fairly well while picking up bottom-six minutes in a part-time role for the Oilers this season. He has three goals, two assists, 29 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 13 appearances. Gagner's place in the lineup is likely safe until Dylan Holloway (lower body) returns, which is expected in roughly two weeks.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Enters lineup, scores goal

    Gagner netted a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

    Gagner was scratched in the last four games, but he got back into the lineup with Zach Hyman (illness) out. The goal was Gagner's first point since Nov. 6. The 34-year-old forward has managed four points, 20 shots on net, eight hits, six blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating over nine appearances, though he's unlikely to see much more than bottom-six usage when he plays.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Earns power-play assist

    Gagner notched a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Gagner set up a Mattias Ekholm tally at 6:42 of the first period. With three points in as many games since signing to rejoin the Oilers at the start of November, Gagner has at least tried to help the team amid its early struggles. He's added eight shots on net, five hits and a plus-2 rating while seeing middle-six minutes and some power-play time. Gagner has some experience as a power-play specialist, but playing on the second unit in Edmonton is unlikely to provide much of a meaningful boost to his production.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Scores twice in return

    Gagner scored two goals on five shots in the Oilers' 4-3 loss to the Stars on Thursday.

    Playing his first game in his third stint as an Oiler, Gagner made his presence known, scoring two goals in the third period to cut the Stars' lead to 4-3. Gagner would also pick up five shots and three minutes in 13:00 TOI. That would be the closest the Oilers would get as they were unable to beat Scott Wedgewood again to even the score at 4-4. With his strong performance Thursday, Gagner could start to see himself in the lineup more often than not as the Oilers look to dig themselves out of their early season struggles.

The 34-year-old forward has one goal and four assists in three AHL outings this season. Gagner is projected to be in the lineup for Edmonton on Thursday against Dallas.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Won't play in preseason games

    Gagner (hip) won't play in preseason games and will be evaluated in October, Jim Matheson of The Edmonton Journal reports.

    Gagner is evidently still recovering from hip surgery he underwent in the offseason. He will practice with the Oilers, but it appears there's a good chance he'll play his first games of the season with AHL Bakersfield before being an option for the NHL club.

  • Oilers' Sam Gagner: Agrees to professional tryout

    Gagner (hip) agreed to a professional tryout agreement with Edmonton on Monday.

    Gagner produced eight goals, 14 points and 78 shots on net in 48 appearances with Winnipeg during the 2022-23 campaign. Assuming he has recovered from the hip surgery that ended his season in March, the 34-year-old will compete for a fourth-line role with the Oilers during training camp.

  • Jets' Sam Gagner: Needs hip surgery

    Gagner will miss the rest of the season, as he will undergo hip surgery, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

  • Jets' Sam Gagner: Scores game-winner

    Gagner scored a goal on one shot, fueling the Jets to a 3-2 win over Calgary on Tuesday.

    Gagner tipped home a shot from Ville Heinola to score the eventual game-winning goal with 5:40 left to play in the third period. This goal snaps Gagner's five-game pointless streak and gives him seven goals on the season. Gagner should continue to see time with the second power-play unit.
