Biographical Info

Currently a member of the Arizona Coyotes, Sam Gagner was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers 6th overall in the 2007 NHL Draft. Gagner would crack the Oilers lineup shortly after his 18th birthday. In his rookie season, he played 79 games and scored 49 points. He was the youngest player in the NHL during the 2007/08 season. Gagner is perhaps best known for a game he played on February 2nd 2012 versus the Chicago Blackhawks. Gagner would score 4 goals and add another 4 assists for 8 points during the game. This feat tied a team record set by Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey. Gagner also became only the 13th player in NHL history to score 8 points in a game and the first to do so since Mario Lemieux did in 1988. The following game 2 days later, Gagner scored 2 goals and added an assist in the first period against Detroit. In doing this, Gagner set a new Oiler record for 1l consecutive points. In the 2014 off season, the Oilers traded Gagner to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who almost immediately dealt him to the Arizona Coyotes.
