Sam Gagner's 8 Point Night

Last night Oiler's center Sam Gagner had a night he won't forget. He had 8 points, 4 goals and 4 assists. His 8 points in one game is tied with the Oiler's record of points in a game. He ties the great Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey.

S/O to @jerseyfoul on this one.

Jagr + USA. Need I say more?
The Minnesota Wild have traded W Casey Wellman and a 2012 7th Round Pick to the New York Rangers in exchange for C Erik Christensen.

Casey Wellman is a good winger that has good hands. He excels at the AHL level but after multiple stints in the NHL, he hasn't been able to excel there.

Erik Christensen is a third line center. He's amazing on shootout goals but has been bouncing around the AHL and the NHL.

Bryon Bitz unable for tonight's game after recall.

The Vancouver Canucks have tried to recall  RW Bryon Bitz. However, due to the inclement weather in the Colorado area, they are unable to call him up.
