NHL Signing: Edmonton Oilers, Sam Gagner Agree To One-Year Contract
The hearing had been scheduled for today.
Gagner, 22, set career-highs last season in goals (18), assists (29) and points (47) and was a plus-5, the first time in his five seasons he’s had a positive plus/minus.
The highlight of his season came February 2, when he had four goals and four assists in the Oilers’ 8-4 win against the Chicago Blackhawks. It was the first eight-point NHL game since Mario Lemieux on December 31, 1988, and Gagner joined Lemieux as the only players to score eight points in a game with one on each of his team’s goals.
Taken by the Oilers with the sixth pick of the 2007 draft, Gagner has 77 goals and 143 assists in 366 NHL games.
