Description: Oilers center Sam Gagner has picked up nine points in eight games this month.
Insight: That includes three two-point games. He had one goal and one assist Tuesday against Nashville, though with eight goals, 25 assists, 114 SOG and a -20 rating, he's a low-end fantasy option.

Description: Oilers center Sam Gagner had a goal, as assist, two SOG and a plus-2 Sunday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: Gagner is getting most of his ice time centering a line with rookie Nail Yakupov and Ales Hemsky, who have five goals apiece. He is producing at better than a point-per-game pace (13 points, 12 games) in his sixth NHL season. He has put up a point total in the 40s in five straight seasons so this pace is unlikely to last, but fantasy owners can give him a shot anyway while he's hot.

Description: Sam Gagner is currently listed as week-to-week with a sprained ankle. TSN
Insight: Don't expect Gagner to start the season for the Oilers. Gagner's injury could mean that first overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has a better shot of making the team, although Oilers GM Steve Tambellini has stated that RNH's situation has nothing to do with Gagner's injury.

Description: Sam Gagner scored a power-play goal and added two assists in the Oilers' 5-1 win over Colorado on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: With Taylor Hall and Ales Hemsky down to injury and Dustin Penner recently traded, Gagner will be expected to carry a great deal of the offensive load for the Oilers for what's left of the season. He has traditionally been more of a second-half player, so he is a possible waiver-wire option late in the season.
