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.

Coyotes' Gagner Pots Two Points In Win

News: Sam Gagner scored his 14th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: A dominant outing for Sam Gagner, who finished the game with seven shots on goal and a plus-2 rating. With the goal and assist, the 25-year-old has now hit the 40-point mark for the first time in three seasons. He's inconsistent, but the top-six forward plays on the top power-play unit and is a reliable point producer.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Pots Winner In OT

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist in regulation and scored the game-winning goal on an overtime power play Thursday against Buffalo.
Analysis: That's points in consecutive games for Sam Gagner, who's now matched last season's 37, but remains well shy of the career-high pace he set as a rookie (49 points in 79 games). His inconsistency and team context make him an uninspiring fantasy asset.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Has Assist In Win

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Red Wings. He took three shots and registered two hits in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner is up to 35 points on the season, which almost equals his output from last year. He has been particularly good since mid-December, with 25 points in 43 games. He is back to being a useful fantasy option in deep leagues, despite the lack of big talent around him on the Coyotes.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Sam Gagner had an assist Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Avalanche. He was minus-2 and registered one shot on the night.
Analysis: With 34 points in 70 games, Sam Gagner is close to his production from last year in Edmonton. Considering that he had just 10 points in the first 30 games of the season, he has recovered well, nearly doubling his per-game production since he was a healthy scratch December 13. The 25-year-old has never reached the 49 points he scored as a rookie and he will be a depth player in fantasy as he gets closer to age 30 while the Coyotes rebuild.

Sam Gagner, C, ARI Coyotes' Gagner Has Assist In Win

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Has Assist In Win

News: Sam Gagner set up one of the Coyotes' two regulation time goals Thursday in a 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks. He had four PIM and three shots in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has four points in his last four games and seems to be responding to the challenge of providing leadership for the Coyotes after they traded a number of veterans. He is under contact for next year, but with the Coyotes rebuilding it's possible he could be elsewhere.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Has Assist In Loss

News: Sam Gagner picked up his 19th assist of the season Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim. He was minus-2 and took one shot in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner is one of the Coyotes' key veterans now that the team is committed to rebuilding. He has turned his season around after a really slow start to reach 31 points in 63 games. He will threaten the 40-point mark this year and should be in the plans going forward when top prospects like Max Domi, and newly acquired Anthony Duclair, arrive and need mentoring.

Coyotes' Gagner Strikes Twice In Loss

News: Sam Gagner scored a pair of power-play goals just 1:26 apart Thursday in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: At the time, Sam Gagner's tallies put Arizona up 3-1 with 40 seconds left in the first period, but the Rangers clamped down thereafter and mounted a comeback. Gagner had a great chance at completing a hat trick in the third period, but missed the net on his shot. The big night snaps a five-game pointless drought for the 25-year-old centerman.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Has Assist In Loss

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist on the power play Friday in a 4-2 loss to the Sharks. He was minus-1 with three shots and delivered a hit in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has points in consecutive games, bringing his season total to 28 in 55 games. It's a disappointing output, but he continues to recover from a brutal start with 18 points in his last 26 games, which is slightly above his career rate. Although Gagner hasn't been with the Coyotes long, he could be a candidate to be moved before the trade deadline if the return is right.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Scores In Loss

News: Sam Gagner scored his 10th goal of the season Tuesday in a loss to St. Louis. He took three shots and blocked one in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has been playing much better since he was a healthy scratch on December 13, recording 17 of his 27 points. It will be interesting to see if Gagner is included in the Coyotes future plans or if they move him before the trade deadline.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Picks Up Assist; Heating Up

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist on a power-play goal Sunday in a win over the Canadiens. He was minus-1 with one shot, one block, and two hits in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has points in three straight games and five points in his last five games as he is finally showing the production the Coyotes hoped for when they acquired him. He has 16 of his season total 26 points since being a healthy scratch on December 13.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Scores In Loss

News: Sam Gagner scored his ninth goal of the season Saturday in a loss to the Senators. It was his only shot of the night.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has been producing much better of late with four points in his last four games. He is up to 25 points on the season and now ranks fourth on the team in scoring.

Sam Gagner

Coyotes' Gagner Nets Two Points In Win

News: Sam Gagner scored his eighth goal of the season on the power play and added an assist Thursday in a win of the Leafs. He went plus-1, took six shots, and added two hits and a blocked shot on the night.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has rescued his season since being a healthy scratch Dec. 13, putting up 14 of his 24 points since then. His point production remains a bit disappointing, but Gagner may be playing his way into Arizona's future plans as they decide who will stay and who will be on the block as the trade deadline approaches. Of course, if he remains in the desert, that could hurt his production further, as the Coyotes are likely about to go through a lengthy rebuilding period.

Coyotes' Gagner Grabs Assist In Loss

News: Sam Gagner assisted on the coyotes' only goal Saturday in a loss to the Senators. He added four shots in 17:44 of ice time in the contest.
Analysis: Sam Gagner slowly keeps improving his play as he seems more comfortable in Arizona. Since being a healthy scratch on December 13 he has 11 points in 11 games to bring his season total to 21 points in 40 games. With the Coyotes almost certainly out of playoff contention and changes sure to come it will be interesting to see whether Gagner fits with any rebuilding plans the team has in mind.

'Yotes Gagner Warming Up In Desert

News: Sam Gagner potted two power-play goals and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: He has 10 points, including four goals, in eight games since bring a healthy scratch. Clearly that lit a fire under him. Check the wire.

Sam Gagner, C, ARI Massive Outing For Coyotes' Gagner

Sam Gagner

Massive Outing For Coyotes' Gagner

News: Sam Gagner unloaded on his old Oilers mates Tuesday, racking up two goals on five shots, two assists, a plus-4 rating and two PIM in a 5-1 victory.
Analysis: The Oilers had held Sam Gagner to just a single point over his first three games against them in his first season outside of an Edmonton sweater, but he finally got his revenge in this one. While things have otherwise been slow for Gagner - he entered play Tuesday with just three points over his prior 11 games -- he's been picking it up lately, having found his way onto the scoresheet in three of the last four. Maybe with another few four-point games, he'll become fantasy-relevant again.

Coyotes' Gagner Returns To Lineup With Assist

News: After being a healthy scratch for the first time since his sophomore season, Sam Gagner returned to the Coyotes' lineup Tuesday and picked up an assist on the game-winner against the Oilers. He was plus-1, took three shots, and added two hits and a blocked shot in 20:27 of ice time.
Analysis: The 25 year-old Sam Gagner has been a huge disappointment in his first season with Arizona, registering just 11 points and a minus-8 rating in 30 games. It looks like he should be back in the lineup for now, but he needs to produce to keep his spot.

Coyotes Make Gagner A Healthy Scratch

News: Sam Gagner was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: It's safe to say that Sam Gagner hasn't been provided the offensive spark the Coyotes had counted on after he was acquired from the Oilers in June. The 25-year-old has just three goals, 10 points and a minus-9 rating over 29 games. Coach Dave Tippett is likely hoping the banishment to the press box lights a fire under him.

Coyotes' Gagner Scores Tuesday

News: Sam Gagner scored his third goal of the season Tuesday in a loss to Calgary. He took three shots and was even on the night.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has struggled to get going offensively in a disappointing start to his time in Arizona, but he has six points in his last 10 games giving some hope that he will turn it around.

Coyotes' Gagner Adds Two Helpers

News: Sam Gagner picked up a pair of helpers in Friday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has struggled to find his way in his first season away from Edmonton, as the two assists brought his point total to just six in 17 games this year. In six full seasons after turning in an impressive 49-point rookie campaign in 2007-08, Gagner has failed to reach that mark again, so it's probably safe to count on him being somewhere in the 30- to 40-point range with Arizona this year, with anything beyond that coming as a bonus.

Coyotes' Gagner Scores Monday

News: Sam Gagner scored his second goal Monday in a win over the Leafs. He took three shots and had two hits.
Analysis: Sam Gagner scored for the second consecutive game and now has points in four of his last six after not registering a point in the first six games of the season. He's still seeing a healthy dose of ice time with the man advantage (2:43 on average), but his total ice time is down nearly two minutes from last year's 18:23 -- on Tuesday, he skated just 14:48. That's third-line ice time, so this bears watching.

Coyotes' Gagner Pots First Of Season

News: Sam Gagner put his team ahead for good with his third period goal in a 6-5 win over the Capitals on Sunday.
Analysis: The goal was his first of the season to go along with two assists. The potential is there, and he's hovered in the 40-50 point range in every season of his career, but so far the production hasn't been.

Coyotes' Gagner On Score Sheet In Second Straight

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist Tuesday in a loss to the Lightning. He had two shots and two hits in 16:42 of ice time.
Analysis: It was his second straight game with an assist after not producing any points in his first five games with Arizona. He continues to man a wing on the Coyotes' second line with Martin Hanzal and Shane Doan.

Coyotes' Gagner Picks Up First Point

News: Sam Gagner picked up an assist Saturday against Florida for his first point as a Coyote. He was minus-1 and added one shot in 19:24 of ice time.
Analysis: Sam Gagner was expected to pick up some of the offensive slack left by the departures of Mike Ribeiro and Radim Vrbata, but that hasn't worked out so far. If this gets him going, he could still be a useful fantasy player the rest of the year.

Coyotes' Gagner Still Without Point

News: Sam Gagner was held off the scoresheet and was minus-2 Thursday in a loss to Minnesota. He put one shot on net in 17:34 of ice time.
Analysis: Sam Gagner has yet to register a point with the Coyotes. His track record suggests that the points will come soon, but he could soon endanger his playing time if his slump continues.
