Oilers Re-Sign Sam Gagner to Two-Year Extension

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Sam Gagner on a two-year deal.

Gagner, 21, appeared in 68 games last season for the Oilers scoring 15 goals and 26 assists for 41 points.

“Sam is a key part of our organization moving forward,” said Tambellini. “We are looking forward to him taking on a larger role with our club.”

The 5’11”, 191-pound London, Ontario native has three seasons under his belt after having put up 49 points (13G, 36A) in his rookie year, where he was named to the 2008 NHL YoungStars Team in Atlanta. He also scored 41 points (16G, 25A) in his sophomore year.

Gagner has some international experience competing for Team Canada in the 2007 World Junior Championship in Sweden. He played in all six games as the youngest player on the team helping Canada to their third of five straight gold medals. Later that year he played in the 2007 Super Series where he scored 15 points in the eight games and was named Series MVP.

Gagner, who was drafted 6th overall by Edmonton in 2007, has collected 131 points (44G, 87A) in 223 career National Hockey League games.

Good resigning at a decent price.

Hopefully, with a healthy lineup around him, and a rejuvenated system, team and coach - Gagner can finally blossom and be the player everyone thinks he can.

Pffftttt, what am I talking about, I hope he has a Shawn Horcoff'esk season next year.

I'm fine with the price...

He'll likely be worth that over the next two years

What's up with Cogliano? Seems like he could be traded...

It sounds liek they're miles apart too, but now that Gagner's signed, it should get the ball rolling and I'd expect Cogliano to be signed by training camp. But looking at the way his point totals have slipped the past three seasons, and I have to wonder what exactly he's asking for that the Oilers aren't willing to meet just yet...next year is going to be a big one for both Gagner and Cogliano...

I guess Cogliano is asking for enough playing time and not for so much money.
With Parjavi, Eberle, Hall coming in, probably playing on the top lines where will Cogliano end up? I don't think he like playing on a defensive checking line too much.
