Sam Gagner had an assist in a 5-4 overtime win on Tuesday.

Gagner has 12 goals and 35 points in 73 contests in 2014-15. That's even worse than he did last season, which itself was seen as a significant step backwards. That being said, Arizona's offense has been terrible overall this season and that's likely taken its toll on Gagner.

Mar 6 - 10:21 AM

Sam Gagner scored two power play goals in the first period on Thursday night in a 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

Gagner had been pointless in his previous five games, and has managed 30 points through 61 games this season. It was his third multi-goal game in the desert and his 14th straight game he did not finish above zero in plus/minus, a span in which he's been -10.

Sam Gagner was the lone goal scorer for Arizona in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Blues.

It took him 54 games, but Gagner finally reached double-digit goals on the campaign, which has been disappointing for those expecting a renaissance in the desert. Martin Erat and Michael Stone picked up helpers on the tally.
Feb 10 - 11:42 PM

Feb 2 - 8:49 AM

Sam Gagner's quietly putting together a decent run for the Arizona Coyotes, even as they continued their fall with a 7-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

He scored his ninth goal of the season, giving him four points (two goals, two assists) in the past four games. He has 25 points in 48 games so far in 2014-15, more or less falling in line with the modest expectations he carried into the season in most observers' eyes.
Jan 31 - 6:10 PM

Sam Gagner had an assist in a 6-1 loss on Tuesday.

Gagner went four games without a point. He has a lackluster seven goals and 22 points in 45 contests in 2014-15. Don't count on Gagner picking up the pace after the All-Star break.
Jan 21 - 10:15 AM

Sam Gagner has been moved back to center with the absence of Martin Hanzal in the lineup.

Gagner is playing between Mikkel Boedker and Lucas Lessio for now. After a terrible start, Gagner has turned it on of late with seven goals and 20 points in 37 games and eight points in his last seven. He was clicking nicely with Hanzal before the injury but is scoreless in his last two games without Hanzal.
Jan 10 - 7:27 AM

Sam Gagner has clicked on a line with Martin Hanzal.

In five games, the duo has combined for 16 points. "One's a big guy who likes to go to the net," coach Dave Tippett said. "The other guy's a smaller guy that likes to handle the puck. If you can have a smaller guy handle the puck and give the big guy time to get to the net, things can work out." It wouldn't be surprising to see Gagner and Hanzal united for a while given their recent success. Gagner has seven goals and 20 points in 37 contests in 2014-15, but eight of those points have been recorded in his last five games.
Jan 6 - 7:23 AM

Sam Gagner lit the lamp twice and added an assist in the Coyotes’ 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Both of Gagner’s goals were scored on the power play, as the Coyotes scored a season-high three with the man advantage. Oliver Ekman-Larsson netted the other power-play tally. Gagner was brought over to add some scoring depth, and he’s been off and on this season, now with seven goals and 20 points in 37 games. Martin Hanzel enjoyed a four-point night with a goal and three helpers. Tobias Rieder (goal, assist) and Kyle Chipchura (goal, assist) got the other goals. OEL also had a helper, while Keith Yandle chipped in with two.

Sam Gagner has been selected as the NHL's third star of the week.

Gagner had two goals and six points in three contests. He's struggled early in his tenure with the Coyotes, so it will be interesting to see if this represents him finally turning a corner. He's certainly got enough offensive upside to make him worth gambling on if you can free up a roster spot for him without making any meaningful sacrifices.

Sam Gagner enjoyed a massive game Tuesday night as he recorded two goals and two assists in a 5-1 victory over Edmonton.

Gagner was expected to rejuvenate his career by moving to the desert, but he's been quite the disappointment thus far. Perhaps a breakout game like the one will get him going on the right track. Martin Erat, Brandon Gormley and Keith Yandle also scored for Arizona in the win while Martin Hanzal picked up three assists.

Sam Gagner had an assist in a 7-1 loss on Monday.

Gagner might have been part of the silver lining in this blowout loss, but he's been pretty disappointing overall for Arizona so far this season. He has just three goals and 12 points in 32 games in his first season outside of Edmonton.
