The Red Wings have acquired Sam Gagner, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick from the Oilers for Andreas Athanasiou and Ryan Kuffner.

Edmonton is also retaining 10% of Gagner's salary. Gagner performed admirably when called upon this season, compiling five goals and seven assists in 36 games. A potential top-six role in Detroit could help Gagner get back to double-digit goals, a mark he's reached 10 times in his 13-year career.
