After exceeding expectations with the Edmonton Oilers as the youngest player in the NHL last season, Sam Gagner is struggling to find his form in his sophomore campaign.
Fifth in rookie scoring with 49 points and seventh in voting for the Calder Trophy in 2007-08 as an 18-year-old, Gagner has just two assists through 11 games this season.
While Gagner is loathe to talk about the dreaded sophomore jinx, there’s no question his start to the season has been disappointing after he set the bar so high a year ago.
