Top Sam Gagner News

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Multiple points in finale

    Gagner dished out two assists in Friday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Gagner's multi-point night in the season finale raised his season point total to 31 over 80 games. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Gagner's unlikely to draw significant interest given his mediocre production and advanced age (he'll turn 33 in August).

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Gives Panthers early scare

    Gagner registered a goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.

    Gagner set four shots on goal, trailing only Tyler Bertuzzi and his seven SOG among Red Wings skaters. Considering he doesn't see much ice time, Gagner has performed quite well in his 15th NHL campaign, adding 13 goals and 16 assists through 77 games.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Two tallies in win over Jets

    Gagner scored two goals, one short-handed, in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Jets.

    He opened the scoring late in the first period, and closed it with an empty-netter late in the third. Gagner has three goals in the last two games, a rare burst of productivity during a campaign in which the 32-year-old has only 11 goals and 27 points over 70 games.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Catches goalie napping

    Gagner scored on his only shot in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Toronto goalie Jack Campbell tried to control the puck from behind the cage, only for Gagner to intercept his clearing attempt and score for the sixth time this season. While he's clearly past his prime, Gagner's 19 points through 53 games actually looks pretty good considering he sees ice time on the fourth line.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Chips in with assist

    Gagner recorded an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.

    Gagner set up Joe Veleno's goal at 19:13 of the third period, which made things interesting at the end of the game. The assist was Gagner's second in his last four games, but he went 11 contests without a point prior to his return to offense recently. The 32-year-old forward remains in a bottom-six role that doesn't lead to much offense. He has 15 points, 75 shots on net, 24 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 47 contests -- that matches his point total from 42 appearances last season despite a reduced role.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Breaks silence with helper

    Gagner provided an assist in a 3-2 shootout win over the Penguins on Friday.

    Gagner assisted on Givani Smith's first period goal to help Detroit out to a 1-0 lead. The 32-year-old had been woefully quiet on offense, as he had scored 0 points in 11 January contests heading into this one. Gagner has bounced around an awful lot over the last few seasons with little success, accumulating just 14 points in 44 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Offers assist in loss

    Gagner provided an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Capitals.

    Gagner set up Pius Suter for a tally in the second period. With a goal and two assists in his last five outings, Gagner has put together decent offense from a bottom-six role. The Ontario native is up to 13 points, 51 shots on net, a minus-7 rating and 16 PIM in 32 contests. He's not a particularly physical player, but his modest scoring skills and power-play usage could make him worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Exits protocols

    Gagner exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday.

    Gagner has recorded two goals and one assist through his eight December appearances. With Lucas Raymond still missing time, the 32-year-old could see an expanded role in the coming contests.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Enters protocols

    Gagner entered the league's COVID-19 protocols Sunday.

    The Red Wings have been officially shut down and aren't scheduled to play again until Dec. 27 at the Rangers, so there's a chance Gagner won't be forced to miss game action. The 32-year-old has 12 points in 31 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Logs helper Friday

    Gagner produced an assist and two PIM in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Gagner continues to be an occasional contributor on offense, though he's picked up just two points in five games in December. The 32-year-old has three goals, eight helpers, 42 shots on net, 16 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 28 outings overall, mainly in a bottom-six role.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Buries goal in win

    Gagner netted a goal on three shots, went plus-2 and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

    Gagner gave the Red Wings their first lead of the game at 7:37 of the first period on a pass from Givani Smith. The 32-year-old Gagner ended a 16-game goal drought on the play, though he managed seven assists in that span. The Ontario native is up to 10 points, 36 shots on net, 12 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 25 contests.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Picks up helper in loss

    Gagner notched an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Gagner had the lone helper on Joe Veleno's third-period tally. Despite bottom-six deployment, Gagner has done alright in November with five helpers in 10 games. He's up to eight points, 30 shots on net and a minus-5 rating in 19 contests overall, though it's tough to trust the veteran forward when he doesn't play on a scoring line.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Generates assist in loss

    Gagner recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.

    Gagner set up Filip Zadina for the Red Wings' first goal of the contest. Despite the helper and Dylan Larkin's exit due to COVID-19 protocols, Gagner saw a season-low 9:17 of ice time Tuesday. The 32-year-old has amassed seven points, 28 shots on net and a minus-4 rating in 18 contests despite being limited to third-line duties at best, though his ice time is trending in the wrong direction in November.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Collects two helpers in victory

    Gagner provided two assists in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Gagner broke out of an abbreviated slump, as he'd been held without a point and posted a combined minus-3 rating over the prior three contests. A consistent 40-plus-point producer in his prime, Gagner will experience the occasional offensive outburst for the Wings, but his ceiling is low as a third-line forward on the rebuilding Original Six club.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Buries goal Friday

    Gagner scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    Gagner got the Red Wings on the board at 2:15 of the second period with his second goal of the year. The 32-year-old saw a season-high 18:54 of ice time Friday while snapping a five-game point drought. The forward has just two tallies and 17 shots on net through eight games in a bottom-six role, so there's not much to see here from a fantasy perspective.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Seals win with empty-netter

    Gagner scored an empty-net goal on his lone shot of the game in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.

    The veteran forward found the open cage from all the way inside his own blue line to put the finishing touches on Detroit's first win of the season. Gagner skated on the right side of Detroit's third line with Vladislav Namestnikov and Michael Rasmussen and compiled just under 17 minutes of ice time.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Back with Detroit

    Gagner signed a one-year contract extension with the Red Wings on Wednesday.

    Gagner appeared in 42 games with the Red Wings last season, picking up seven goals, eight helpers and 88 shots on net over that span. The 31-year-old forward will likely continue to occupy a middle-six role with Detroit in 2021-22, but he won't have much offensive upside on a rebuilding Red Wings squad.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Lights lamp with man advantage

    Gagner tallied a power-play goal on five shots Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Columbus.

    Gagner buried a rebound in front with time winding down on a man advantage, tying the game at 3-3 midway through the third period. The power-play tally didn't do anything to help Gagner's minus-3 rating on the night. Gagner has seven goals and eight assists in 42 contests this season.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Two points in big win

    Gagner scored an empty-net goal, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Stars.

    Gagner set up a Richard Panik goal in the first period and added an empty-netter in the third. This was just the second multi-point effort of the year for Gagner -- he also had a hat trick versus the Predators on Feb. 25. The 31-year-old is at 13 points, 69 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 35 appearances this year. He's matched his point output from 42 contests in 2019-20.

  • Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Sends helper

    Gagner managed an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.

    Gagner had a hand in a Dylan Larkin goal in the third period. The 31-year-old Gagner hasn't produced much offense in 2020-21 -- he has 11 points through 34 appearances. He's added 68 shots on net and a minus-2 rating while primarily logging bottom-six minutes.
