Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Two points in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Good to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (undisclosed) will play in Monday's game versus the Hurricanes, per the NHL's official media site.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Status up in the air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (undisclosed) participated in an optional skate Sunday, but the Red Wings are still deciding whether he'll play against the Hurricanes on Monday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

The Wings appear to be taking all of the necessary precautions with Gagner. He missed five straight games prior to his return against the Predators on Thursday, yet the veteran pivot was once again absent for Saturday's clash with the 'Canes. As a result, Gagner is shaping up to be a game-time decision Monday.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's clash with Carolina.

Gagner returned to action following a five-game absence Thursday against the Predators, firing two shots on net in 14:22 of ice time, but the veteran forward must have aggravated his undisclosed injury during the 7-1 loss. At this point there's no telling when Gagner might be ready to rejoin the lineup.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Gagner has already missed five games with the injury, so he'll be eligible to return when healthy. The 31-year-old's status for Thursday's game against the Predators is unknown at this time.

April 6, 2021 01:01 PM

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Notches 300th career assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner registered an assist in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Lightning.

Gagner set up Troy Stecher's first-period tally, which was the former's 300th career assist. The 31-year-old Gagner has 468 points in 864 appearances. The Ontario native has picked up assists in three straight games, and he's up to nine points in 20 contests overall. Gagner could carry some fantasy value as a pure scoring option in deeper formats.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Logs assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner collected an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Lends helping hand in latest contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner garnered an assist Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

The journeyman has been inconsistent lately, as he's contributed four goals and an assist over the last five games, albeit with a pair of box score goose eggs sandwiched in between. Such is life as a member of a Red Wings squad that is averaging a paltry 2.08 goals per game, 30th in the league.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Tallies in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner scored a goal on a team-high seven shots in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

Gagner has four goals in the last three games after sitting out a previous pair of contests as a healthy scratch. The 31-year-old is no stranger to big production, but it's been a few years since he was a reliable source of offense. Through 16 games this year, Gagner has four tallies, two helpers and 35 shots on net. He featured in a second-line role Sunday with Robby Fabbri (undisclosed) unavailable.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Pops off with hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner scored a hat trick in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Predators.

Gagner twice put the Red Wings ahead with his first two tallies. He added some insurance with an empty net goal. Entering Thursday, Gagner had just two assists in 13 outings this season. The 31-year-old hasn't been a consistent scorer since 2017-18 as a member of the Canucks, so there's no need to rush to add him to fantasy rosters.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Picks up first point of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner registered an assist, a team-high five shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

Gagner had the primary helper on Marc Staal's opening tally in the second period. The 31-year-old Gagner hasn't found much success in a middle-six role for the Red Wings this year, as the assist was his first point in seven outings. He's fallen short of the 30-point mark in each of the last two seasons, and it appears 2020-21 won't be much different for the Ontario native.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Removed from protocol list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner was removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list and added to Detroit's active roster Wednesday.

Gagner has missed the Red Wings' last six games due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but he's expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, skating on the fourth line and the second power-play unit against the Lightning. The 31-year-old forward has gone scoreless through four games this campaign.

Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Eligible to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (COVID-19 protocols) will be eligible to return for Wednesday's game against Tampa Bay.

Gagner's still on non-roster injured reserve, so he'll need to be activated before rejoining the lineup. The 31-year-old forward has missed Detroit's last six games due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.

January 24, 2021 01:12 PM
Red Wings' Sam Gagner: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gagner (COVID-19 protocol) won't play in Sunday's matchup against the Blackhawks, NHL.com reports.

Gagner will miss a second straight game as he works through the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. Filip Zadina is in the same boat, so the Red Wings promoted Taro Hirose and Givani Smith from the taxi squad for Sunday's game.
