Gagner re-joining Oilers on PTO

Gagner re-joining Oilers on PTO

Sam Gagner is back in an Oilers jersey.

Edmonton signed the veteran forward to a professional tryout, the team announced Monday. It will be Gagner’s third stint with the team that drafted him in 2007 and then acquired him in a trade in 2018.

The 34-year-old tallied eight goals and 14 points in 48 games last season with the Winnipeg Jets. His campaign ended in March when he underwent hip surgery.

Gagner accumulated 111 goals and 317 points in 542 games with the Oilers from 2007-14 and 2018-20. His career highlight came on Feb. 2, 2012, when the then 22-year-old scored eight points in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks, matching Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey for Edmonton’s single-game franchise mark.

The London, Ontario, native also played for the Arizona Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Vancouver Canucks, and Detroit Red Wings. Gagner’s accrued 192 goals and 519 points in 1,015 career contests.

The Oilers added Brandon Sutter to their training camp roster on a professional tryout earlier in August.
