NHL: Oilers, Sam Gagner Agree to 3-Year, $14.4-M Extension

Center Sam Gagner and the Edmonton Oilers reached an agreement for a three-year, $14.4-million extension.

Sam Gagner is getting his wish to stay put in Edmonton

Gagner received a three-year, $14.4 million extension from the Edmonton Oilers which stemmed from his desire for a no-trade clause, write the Edmonton Journal's Joanne Ireland. The Oilers center will receive $4.4 million in the 2013-14 NHL season and $5 million in each of the next two. 

Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish announced the development on July 22.

Gagner logged on to his Twitter account to say that he's happy with the development. 

"So happy to remain an Edmonton Oiler for at least three more years. Thanks to everyone for the support. Time to get to work."

Ireland confirms the no-trade, no-move clause will be put into effect next season. She also adds Gagner was slated to become the NHL's youngest unrestricted free agent prior to his new deal. Now, he gets to build on his success with the Oilers. 

"I want to be in Edmonton long-term and I wanted to be sure that was possible. 

"I feel like we're going in the right direction and it's something I want to be part of."

Prior to his arbitration hearing with the Oilers on Monday at 9 a.m. ET, Gagner was asking for $5.5 million while Edmonton countered with $3.5 million, writes Yahoo! Sports' Sean Leahy. 

USA Today Sports' Kevin Allen notes there were 21 NHL players who filed for salary arbitration this summer. Gagner is the 12th who was able to come to terms with his team without having to resort to arbitration.  

Gagner was the sixth overall pick of the 2007 NHL Draft and has spent his entire career with the Oilers. In 414 career games, he has 258 points on 91 goals and 167 assists. His 258 points are good enough to currenlty rank him as the 17th all-time leading scorer in Edmonton Oilers history.

Buffalo Sabres: Why They Should (Mostly) Avoid the Big Names This Offseason

Jun 12 2014 9:25pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It goes without saying that the Buffalo Sabres need to improve to compete for the Stanley Cup. This is as obvious a fact as any, but there are plenty of ways they can go about doing it.  One potential way to get better in a hurry is through trades and the free-agent market, both of which are about to open for business in the next few weeks with the Los Angeles Kings on the verge of winning their second Stanley Cup.  And this offseason seems to have quite a few big names ava ...
