Gagner picked up an assist in regulation and scored the game-winning goal on an overtime power play Thursday against Buffalo.

That's points in consecutive games for Gagner, who's now matched last season's 37, but remains well shy of the career-high pace he set as a rookie (49 points in 79 games). His inconsistency and team context make him an uninspiring fantasy asset.

Gagner picked up an assist Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Red Wings. He took three shots and registered two hits in the contest.

Gagner is up to 35 points on the season, which almost equals his output from last year. He has been particularly good since mid-December with 25 points in 43 games. He is back to being a useful fantasy option in deep leagues despite the lack of big talent around him on the Coyotes.

Gagner had an assist Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Avalanche. He was minus-2 and registered one shot on the night.

With 34 points in 70 games, Gagner is close to his production from last year in Edmonton. Considering that he had just 10 points in the first 30 games of the season, he has recovered well, nearly doubling his per game production since he was a healthy scratch on December 13. The 25-year-old has never reached the 49 points he scored as a rookie and he will be a depth player in fantasy as he gets closer to age 30 while the Coyotes rebuild.

Gagner set up one of the Coyotes two regulation time goals Thursday in a 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks. He had four PIM and three shots in the contest.

Gagner has four points in his last four games and seems to be responding to the challenge of providing leadership for the Coyotes after they traded a number of veterans. He is under contact for next year, but with the Coyotes rebuilding it's possible he could be elsewhere.

Gagner picked up his 19th assist of the season Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim. He was minus-2 and took one shot in the contest.

Gagner is one of the Coyotes' key veterans now that the team is committed to rebuilding. He was turned his season around after a really slow start to reach 31 points in 63 games. He will threaten the 40-point mark this year and should be in the plans going forward when top prospects like Max Domi, and newly acquired Anthony Duclair, arrive and need mentoring.

Gagner scored a pair of power-play goals just 1:26 apart Thursday in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

At the time, Gagner's tallies put Arizona up 3-1 with 40 seconds left in the first period, but the Rangers clamped down thereafter and mounted a comeback. Gagner had a great chance at completing a hat trick in the third period, but missed the net on his shot. The big night snaps a five-game pointless drought for the 25-year-old centerman.

He was minus-1 with three shots and delivered a hit in the contest.Gagner has points in consecutive games bringing his season total to 28 in 55 games. It's a disappointing total, but he continues to recover from a brutal start with 18 points in his last 26 games, which is slightly above his career rate. Although Gagner hasn't been with the Coyotes long, he could be a candidate to be moved before the trade deadline if the return is right as the Coyotes look at a rebuilding effort.
