Since he'll return to the line-up soon, we might as well discuss what he brings to the table. GP:414 Goals:91 Assists:167 TP: 258 +/-: -48 Powerplay goals: 29 - SHG: 1 - GWG: 6 S%:10.57 Career FO%: ~43% http://stats.tabita.org/faceoffs/player/sam_gagner weird little statline is that he seems to be better at winning them on the PP and in the offensive zone In the preseason, he played 3 games and had 1 goal. He is a shifty forward with great hands. His skating has improved since he got in the league, but he doesn't have great speed. He is not afraid of the corners. He had a career season last year, albeit a shortened one. He's still recovering from his broken jaw, but will probably return soon. slight update : Gagner won't be on the 2-game roadtrip, looking like more then a week till his return I think he'll have an immediate impact on the PP when he returns.
