Gagner exited Monday's game against the Hurricanes after logging just 1:54 of ice time with an upper-body injury, and was ultimately unable to return to the contest. The Flyers recalled Colin McDonald on Tuesday, indicating they're unsure if Gagner will be available for Wednesday's matchup with the Islanders. The 26-year-old forward's availability for Wednesday's game should become clearer following his re-evaluation.

    • Probable healthy scratch for season opener

      News: Sam Gagner is likely to be a healthy scratch for the Flyers' first game of the regular season, Oct. 8, against the Lightning, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
      Analysis: Rumors swirled this past June that Sam Gagner would be a buyout candidate by the Flyers, but that never came to fruition. However, already being mentioned as a probable healthy scratch for the season opener obviously doesn't bode well for his chances of securing a significant role in the early going. Gagner added a modest 41 points in 81 games with Arizona last season, but that came along with an unsightly minus-28 rating.
    • Flyers Say They'll Keep Gagner

      News: Sam Gagner has been informed by the Flyers that the team intends to keep him on the roster, CSN's Tim Panaccio reports.
      Analysis: Sam Gagner was acquired via trade over the weekend, and the initial expectation was that he would be bought out by the Flyers. However, the team said Tuesday that it intends to hang onto Gagner, and neither a buyout nor a trade is in the works.
    • New Flyer Gagner Likely Target Of Buyout

      News: Sam Gagner, who was acquired Saturday afternoon in a deal that included Chris Pronger's contract going to Arizona, is expected to be the target of a buyout, says Frank Seravalli of TSN.
      Analysis: The Flyers are trying to clear cap space and a buyout would accomplish that. But interestingly enough, it would also impact the Bolts, a team that retained some of his contract when they dealt him to the Yotes. This is a unique situation for the league and the Bolts -- the team has zero say in the situation, leaving them with a hit on their own cap for two more years instead of one.
    • Flyers Acquire Gagner

      News: The Flyers acquired Sam Gagner in exchange for Niklas Grossman and Chris Pronger's contract on Saturday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
      Analysis: The Flyers have a severe lack of depth at center and a good amount of depth at defense, so this move seems to make sense for all parties involved. Sam Gagner is talented enough to be a part of the Flyers' top-six forward group, but it's hard to see him leapfrogging Claude Giroux or Sean Couturier on Philadelphia's depth chart. He registered 15 goals and 26 assists for a total of 41 points in 81 games with the Coyotes in 2014-15, and will likely begin the 2015-16 campaign playing center on the Flyers' third line.
    • Coyotes' Gagner Nets 15th Goal In Loss

      News: Sam Gagner netted his 15th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Ducks.
      Analysis: Sam Gagner finished the season strong, recording three goals and six points in his last eight games. The 25-year-old hit the 40-point barrier for the sixth time in his career and began to find his role with Arizona. While he's a talented offensive producer, Gagner has firmly established himself as a 40-50 point guy. Nothing more, nothing less.
