Restricted free agent Sam Gagner put to bed several worries fans of the Edmonton Oilers might have had, signing a two-year deal worth $4.55M total. The 21-year old centre will likely start on the second line this upcoming season, and he’ll likely get time playing with some of the new blood in town.
This signing couldn’t have come at a better time. With September on the horizon, this is one signing that we’ve been waiting for since July 1st.
