Sam Gagner scored a goal against his old team, the Edmonton Oilers, in a 2-1 victory on Thursday night.

In 12 career games against the Edmonton Oilers, Gagner has four goals and eight points. Gagner's goal against the Oilers tied the game at one goal apiece in the second period before Derrick Pouliot won the game in the third. Gagner now has 10 goals and 31 points in 70 games this season.

Sam Gagner scored a goal in a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

With Colton Parayko having his back to Henrik Sedin, the Swede slid the puck right through the defenseman's legs right to Gagner for Vancouver's only goal of the night. It's Gagner's eighth of the year and after such a great year with Columbus last season, it's fair to call his 29-point season a disappointment.

Sam Gagner has not found the back of the net in his last 24 games.

Sam Gagner picked up a couple of assists in a 5-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Coming off a 50-point season with Columbus, Gagner has failed to make much of an impression in his first year with Vancouver. Tonight was just the second time all season that the 28-year-old forward picked up multiple points in a game. With just seven goals and 27 points in 64 games this season, Gagner has no fantasy upside. The Canucks are locked in for another two seasons at $3.15 million per season.

Sam Gagner opened the scoring in Tuesday's game at Calgary with a power-play goal in the first period.

Gagner has two goals on the season, but coming on the man advantage. He also chipped in with five shots on goal and a blocked shot in 17:30 of ice time. Gagner is off to a bit of a slow start, but he sees plenty of time on the power play for the Canucks and he has the scoring touch to pick up points in bunches. For now, however, his fantasy appeal is limited to deeper pools.

Sam Gagner struck for his first goal of the season, a power-play tally, in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss against the visiting Stars.

Gagner was determined to erase that goose egg from the goal column, as he squeezed off a season-high six shots to snap a 10-game goal drought to kick off the new season. He is a gifted scorer who sees plenty of power-play time, so he could pick up points in bunches soon. Still, his fantasy value is limited to deeper pools until he gets on track.

Sam Gagner has not been a factor playing on a line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin.

It was thought that the trio would make up the top line when Gagner signed in July with Vancouver but the chemistry does not seem to be there. The Canucks could still try someone else with the Swedish twins and with opening night less than two weeks away, a decision should be made soon. Gagner had 18 goals and 50 points with Columbus last season but a return to those numbers with an offensively-challenged Vancouver team, may be in doubt.
