Sam Gagner gets on with the Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings gave forward Sam Gagner a one-year contract extension on Saturday.

According to TSN , the deal is worth $ 850,000, which is a significant pay cut from the 31-year-old's previous contract, which earned him $ 9.45 million in three years.

Winning concluded the recent season with the Wings, having been limited to one goal in six games with his new team.

The Detroit team acquired Gagner on February 24 in a trade sending forwards Andreas Athanasiou and Ryan Kuffner to the Edmonton Oilers. The Red Wings also got their hands on a second-round pick for the next draft and another second-round pick for 2021.

In 844 career National Hockey League games, Gagner has totaled 459 points. His most productive season dates back to 2016-17 when he scored 50 points in 81 games in a Columbus Blue Jackets uniform.
